On March 2, 2020, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that health insurers throughout New York State, including MetroPlus Health Plan, will NOT charge members cost sharing (copays, coinsurance, deductibles) for coronavirus testing. This includes the cost of the test, as well as any cost for visiting the doctor, urgent care center, or hospital to be tested.
If you believe you have been exposed to the coronavirus, call 311 right away.
