COVID-19 Update:  Public Health Emergency Period Extends COVID-19 Testing Cost Share Waiver through April 11, 2023


Health & Human Services (HHS) extended the federal public health emergency (PHE) period through April 11, 2023.

In compliance with The Families First Coronavirus Response Act and HHS guidance, health plans following Cigna’s standard coverage will continue to cover individualized COVID-19 diagnostic tests and related visits without customer cost share through the PHE*. Testing done for employment purposes remains not covered.


Any client who has elected a benefit different than standard coverage, such as an extension of testing beyond the PHE, will maintain their selected benefit coverage unless they notify Cigna requesting a change.


The coverage includes FDA-approved COVID-19 diagnostic tests administered by an in or out-of-network healthcare provider.

If you have any questions, please contact your Cigna representative.
