Bulletin to Commercial Health Insurers

Date: 
03/13/2020
Author: 
Office of Consumer Affairs - Division of Insurance

The Division of Insurance ("Division") issues this Bulletin to provide information to Commercial Health Insurers, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Inc., and Health Maintenance Organizations ("Carriers") about the Division's expectations regarding Carriers' appropriate coverage of testing and treatment for COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus, and other actions that will directly address the potential impacts of Coronavirus. Recognizing that members of the public may seek a variety of health care services in connection with the Coronavirus, including laboratory testing and urgent care and emergency services, the cost of those health care services should not be a barrier for Massachusetts residents.  See the attached bulletin.
