Coverage changes for COVID-19

The Public Health Emergency for COVID-19 ended on May 11, 2023.

Medicare continues to cover vaccines without cost sharing.
You might have cost-sharing for COVID-19 diagnostic tests.
Medicare doesn't cover over-the-counter (OTC) tests, but as of September 25, 2023, you can visit to place an order of 4 free at-home tests per household.

PrimeTime Health Plan members will not have to pay for the cost of the vaccine. You should not be billed for this service. When you get a COVID-19 vaccine, your provider can’t charge you for an office visit or other fee if the vaccine is the only medical service you get. If you get other medical services at the same time you get the COVID-19 vaccine, you may owe a copayment or deductible for those services.
