The CMS, DOL and Treasury Departments recently and jointly issued FAQs about how group health plans are required to cover COVID-19 Diagnostic Testing without cost-sharing.  The guidance makes clear that private group health plans generally cannot use medical screening to deny this testing to individuals who may be asymptomatic.  For example, individuals wishing to confirm that they are COVID-19 negative prior to visiting a family member generally would be eligible for testing without cost sharing.  For more details, see CMS comments.
