The cost of the COVID-19 vaccine will be covered at 100%. The member will not incur any expense. This includes booster vaccines.
- Testing provided at a facility will be covered under the diagnostic lab benefit and the member’s applicable cost share (deductible/copay/coinsurance) will apply.
- Over-the-counter COVID019 tests are no longer covered under the Concordia Health Plan*
*FSAs and HSAs can be used to purchase an OTC COVID-19 test.
