EHP COVID-19 Vaccine Coverage

EHP members do not have to pay for an FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccine when administered by an in-network provider. Your cost share (copay, deductible, etc.) is $0 for in-network COVID-19 vaccines. Vaccines received from an out-of-network provider will be covered with the applicable member cost share.

COVID-19 Tests

(Coverage changes effective July 10, 2023)

  • EHP members have a cost share (copayments, co-insurance and deductibles) for COVID-19 testing, or visits that result in COVID-19 testing, items and services provided during an office visit (including in-office or telehealth provider office visits, urgent care and emergency department visits) that results in the administration of a COVID-19 test or an order for such test, but only to the extent that the items and services relate to the COVID-19 test. (JHU members: the above services are covered at 100%.)
  • Prior authorizations are not required for COVID-19 testing and the associated visit.

At-Home Tests

EHP does not cover the cost of at-home COVID-19 tests.
