It will only cost a $10 copay for those on a traditional plan and less than $50 before deductible for those on an HSA plan.

PEHP Coverage of COVID-19 Antibody Testing

PEHP covers antibody testing for COVID-19 at no cost to you and without preauthorization when done by in-network providers. Antibody testing identifies those who have had COVID-19, recovered, and are producing antibodies to protect against future infection. Antibody testing is not meant to detect current infection.

  • This only applies to billing codes 86328 and 86769. 
  • If an out of network lab is used, there may be a cost for antibody testing.
  • Home tests are not covered.
  • Antibody testing offered at drive up centers coordinated through local cities are only covered in connection with a prescription.
  • The allowed amount for antibody testing is $47.

Antibody testing provides answers to the following:

  • Should I donate plasma if my test results are positive?
    • If you’ve had COVID-19 you may be a candidate to donate plasma serum that may help others. 
  • If my test result is positive can I stop social distancing?
    • Unfortunately, the results of the antibody test will not change guidance related to social distancing.
  • If my test results are positive can I return to work?
    • Positive results are not an indicator that you may safely return to work. 
    • At this time, we don’t know for sure if a positive test will protect you from infection.
  • What are the accuracy rates for antibody detection?
    • Results from current tests vary.  Many factors including when you may have been affected, the kind of test used, and the time that passed from the infection to the test. 
  • Are researchers using antibody testing?
    • Yes.  Many researchers are using antibody testing to investigate how many people may have been infected and determine what antibodies mean.
