Am I covered for pathology tests for COVID-19?

Health insurers are unable to pay for pathology tests in an out-patient setting as these are covered by Medicare. It's best to check with Medicare to determine which pathology tests are covered and whether you may have an out-of-pocket cost. 

If you have Hospital cover that provides cover for your treatment, have served your waiting periods (including waiting periods for any pre-existing conditions) and are admitted to hospital as an inpatient, your pathology tests will be covered.
