COVID-19 Testing Costs

Most health plans are required to cover COVID-19-related testing and services provided during a medical visit with no cost-sharing. However, some may not.  Your out-of-pocket costs for COVID-19 health care are subject to your health insurance benefits and copays/deductibles may apply. Contact your health insurance company and provide them with the Gritman billing codes below to learn more about potential costs and coverage under your plan during this public health emergency.

Individual payer policies may vary, but the following codes generally are appropriate.  During the declared State of Emergency, the following discounted prices will be offered.  Please feel free to contact us at 208-883-2223 to discuss financial assistance options for the under-insured or uninsured.
