            On Thursday, Governor Tim Walz announced that Minnesota’s health plans agreed to waive cost-sharing for treatment of COVID-19.

            According to the Governor's office, this move comes in response to the Governor’s Commissioners of Health and Commerce sending a letter on March 13 urging the health plans to remove barriers to coverage during the COVID-19 pandemic.

            “This move will help ensure no Minnesotan has to sacrifice paying rent or buying groceries to cover a hospital bill from COVID-19,” Governor Walz said. “I’m grateful Minnesota’s health plans are putting the health and safety of our fellow Minnesotans first during this pandemic.”

            The Governor's office said Minnesotans with commercial insurance—including individuals, small businesses, and some large businesses—are now eligible for the following benefits:

            • Minnesotans will have no cost-sharing charges for COVID testing.
            • Minnesotans who are hospitalized will have no cost-sharing charges for in-network hospitalization.
            • Minnesotans will have expanded access to telemedicine services.

            “Access to health care is very important at any time, but during the COVID-19 pandemic it is absolutely essential for people to have access to affordable, high-quality care to stay healthy or recover from illness,” Minnesota Department of Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm said.

            The Governor's office listed the following non-profit health plans that have committed to this framework:

            • Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota
            • HealthPartners • Hennepin Health
            • Medica
            • PreferredOne
            • UCare

            The Governor's office said many Minnesotans that receive their coverage through their employer have self-insured plans. The Departments do not have regulatory authority over these plans but are encouraging employers to work with their plan administrators to implement similar measures.
