Legislation mandating free testing doesn’t put an end to surprise bills from COVID-19

Reimbursement provisions on COVID-19 claims were included in two Coronavirus aid packages signed into law in March. But loopholes in the law and confusion about coverage have led to surprise medical bills that are hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

As COVID-19 cases continue to rise and the demand for testing and treatment grows, this problem is likely to get worse.
