Statement from CMS Administrator Seema Verma on America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) taking action against the Coronavirus

“I spoke with Matt Eyles this morning and the Administration applauds America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) and its Board of Directors for the action they took today to commit to covering needed diagnostic testing when ordered by a physician and reducing barriers to access such as prior-authorization and cost-sharing for these services. The Trump Administration is utilizing a whole-of-America approach, including working with our private partners, so that our entire healthcare system and our communities are activated and coordinated in our efforts to protect the American people.”
