COVID-19 Testing

How can I get tested for COVID-19?

If you have COVID-19 symptoms, please contact your provider, schedule a telemedicine visit, or visit The New York State Department of Health website to locate a testing site.

CDPHP will pay for COVID-19 testing (including rapid testing)* that has been determined to be medically appropriate by an attending provider or pharmacist, and when testing is approved by the FDA or issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). 

Testing ordered or requested by someone other than an attending provider or pharmacist, or performed without an order, including testing on asymptomatic individuals as required by employers, schools, camps, sports, 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 will cover at-home test kits that are FDA-approved or issued an EUA by the FDA. At-home test kits must be ordered by an attending provider or pharmacist. Members will need to submit both the itemized receipt and a copy of the physician or pharmacist order for reimbursement
