Insurance companies no longer covering 100% of Covid costs

The days of full covid coverage are over. Insurers are restoring deductibles and co-pays, leaving patients with big bills.” Headline in The Washington Post 9/18/21.

Maybe it is time for the unvaccinated to finally get the jab to protect themselves.

“In 2020, as the pandemic took hold, U.S. health insurance companies declared they would cover 100 percent of the costs for covid treatment, waiving co-pays and expensive deductibles for hospital stays that frequently range into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.”

“But this year, most insurers have reinstated co-pays and deductibles for covid patients.” Christopher Rowland, writing for the Post.
