HHS Secretary Becerra has issued a letter to insurers and providers concerning free COVID-19 vaccines and tests.
To COVID-19 vaccination and testing providers and insurers:
Since we took office, the Biden-Harris administration has made combating the COVID-19 pandemic our top priority. Central to our national plan to protect Americans and end the pandemic has been increasing testing and vaccinations. In light of recent reports of consumer cost concerns, I am reminding health care providers of their signed agreements to cover the administration of COVID-19 vaccines free-of-charge to patients, and group health plans and health insurers of their legal requirement to provide coverage of COVID-19 vaccinations and diagnostic testing without patients shouldering any cost.
