This blog post uses data from HIX Compare to highlight the financial aspects of testing and accessing care for COVID-19. The post discusses the challenges and risks associated with implementing cost-sharing requirements for COVID-19 testing and treatment, and the implications that these requirements may have in individuals delaying or avoiding care altogether.

The post also includes considerations for states and industry stakeholders to help mitigate this public health crisis, including examples of waiving cost-sharing requirements.
