How much does Guthrie charge for COVID-19 testing?

These amounts do not include other ambulatory, diagnostic, therapeutic, emergency and/or inpatient services that may be charged in conjunction with this testing.

Will I be charged co-pays and/or deductibles for my COVID-19 related services?
Many health insurance plans have publicly declared that they are waiving member co-pays and out-of -pocket expenses for COVID-19 testing. Guthrie checks patient eligibility regularly and will not bill patients whose health insurance plan has waived out of pocket COVID-19 related expenses.

What if Guthrie is an “out of network” provider with my health plan, will I be “balanced billed” for COVID-19 related visits?
Guthrie will not “balance bill” the difference between in-network versus out-of-network co-pay, fees, and deductibles related to COVID-19 services.
