COVID-19 Testing Coverage

Your health plan through Univera covers COVID-19 testing in full*, including antibody testing, if:

  • You show possible symptoms or have had known close contact with someone else who has tested positive for COVID-19 AND
  • It is ordered by your doctor and deemed medically appropriate

Please Note: COVID-19 testing for those who do not have symptoms, but who are required to have testing by their employer, school or a government or public health agency, is not covered.

Free COVID-19 testing is available at any of the 700+ testing sites through New York state operated by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOC).  Anyone can get tested and you do not need to show symptoms of COVID-19, although appointments may be required.  To find a NYSDOC testing site, please call the health department's 24-hour hotline at 1-888-364-3065 or refer to the New York Department of Health Website.
