Vermont becomes one of first states to require insurers to cover at-home COVID-19 tests

Vermont is now one of the first states to require health insurers to pay for the costs associated with at-home COVID-19 tests, Gov. Phil Scott announced.

Through an emergency regulation issued by the Department of Financial Regulation, Scott said in a news release, along with Michael Pieciak, who serves as commissioner of the Department of Financial Regulation, the rule will cover 140,000 state residents who purchase commercial insurance and requires insurance companies to pay for the costs of FDA-authorized COVID-19 antigen tests.

According to the release, it may take several weeks to implement the new rule, which will be active until March 31, 2022.
