“With Bind, premiums cover core medical services — including most diagnostic testing — with no deductible to meet first, Miller said. That means consumers with Bind coverage pay nothing to get tested for COVID-19.”
“Most deductible plans, however, could not cover COVID-19 testing for consumers who had yet to meet their deductibles, Miller said, until the Families First Coronavirus Response Act fixed that issue.”
“At employers that offer deductible plans in addition to Bind, ‘benefit teams were shocked’ to learn that Bind members don’t pay for the testing, Miller said.”
