COVID-19 Testing

How can I get tested for COVID-19?

If you have COVID-19 symptoms, please contact your provider or schedule a telemedicine visit.

If you are asymptomatic, please visit The New York State Department of Health website to locate a free testing site.

CDPHP will pay for COVID-19 testing that has been determined to be medically appropriate by an attending provider*. Testing ordered or requested by someone other than an attending provider, or performed without an order, including testing on asymptomatic individuals as required by employers, schools, sports, camps, and epidemiological research, or for the purpose of travelling to and from New York state, is not covered.

*Some employers who self-insure do not have this benefit. If you are unsure if your plan includes this benefit, please contact CDPHP member services.

Are at-home test kits covered?

CDPHP is aware that the FDA has authorized the first at-home COVID-19 test kit, and we continue to gather information about its use.

We are currently working on providing guidance to members as it relates to coverage of this and any subsequent at-home testing solutions.
