Overview

IRS Notice 2020-15 provides that a high deductible health plan (HDHP) can pay for testing and treatment of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) without imposing a deductible. This is welcome news for employers who are looking for ways to address health issues relating to COVID-19. 

 

The takeaway

Employers who want to provide COVID-19 testing and treatment for free to employees who are covered by a HDHP can work with their health insurers to provide these benefits.
