  • Minnesota Health plans: State leaders have partnered with local nonprofit health plans to remove barriers to care and coverage during the COVID-19 pandemic. Refer to your health plan for a better understanding of changes specific to your coverage.
    Some of the changes for commercially insured members include:
    • No costs for COVID-19 testing. Minnesotans will not be charged for any costs related to COVID-19 testing. 
    • No costs for hospitalizations related to COVID-19. Most plans will not charge members if they need to be hospitalized due to COVID-19 and use an in-network hospital. 
    • Access to telemedicine. Most plans and providers have increased access to telemedicine services, allowing Minnesotans to get the care they need from the safety of their homes.
      Employer coverage may vary. Many Minnesotans are covered through their employers, who offer their own benefit structure. The State of Minnesota cannot mandate these benefits to these plans but is encouraging employers to offer similar COVID-19 coverage.
