Will Medicare pay for your COVID-19 test? That depends on the type of test and the doctor’s orders. This graphic will help you decide.
Medicare will cover all tests preformed by a lab when ordered by a doctor, pharmacist or other health care professional.
Medicare will cover only ONE lab test per patient when NOT ordered by a doctor, pharmacist or other health care professional.
Original Medicare will NOT cover tests NOT performed by a lab, such as at home test kits. Some Medicare Advantage plans may cover them.
