  • Medicare covers the lab tests for COVID-19. Patient pays no out-of-pocket costs.
  • Medicare covers all medically necessary hospitalizations. This includes if the patient is diagnosed with COVID-19 and might otherwise have been discharged from the hospital after an inpatient stay, but instead need to stay in the hospital under quarantine.
  • At this time, there’s no vaccine for COVID-19. However, if one becomes available, it will be covered by all Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (Part D).
  • If patients have a Medicare Advantage Plan, they have access to these same benefits. Medicare allows these plans to waive cost-sharing for COVID-19 lab tests. Many plans offer additional telehealth benefits beyond the ones described below. Check with plan about coverage and costs.
  • Telehealth and related services: Medicare covers “virtual check-ins” so patients can connect with their doctor by phone or video, or even an online patient portal, to see whether they need to come in for a visit. If they’re concerned about illness and are potentially contagious, this offers an easy way to remain at home and avoid exposure to others.
