I am reading the paper we received Saturday about the COVID-19 testing in Shamokin stating it will be free if you don’t have insurance, but people who do have insurance have to cover it with $55 out of their pocket. Another way the working people get the lousy end of the deal. Editor: Not quite. The story states the laboratory will be charging $55 for people who have insurance with a policy that will not cover the antibody testing. However, as was stated in the next sentence in the story, about two weeks ago the Trump administration released guidance that requires insurance companies to cover the antibody testing. Is every insurance company following that guidance? There’s no way for us to answer that for every health insurance company out there, but the first step if you’re interested in getting the test is to call your insurance company and ask if it’s covered. You’ll likely hear it is.
