Expanded coverage for COVID-19
The following coverage will continue through the end of the North Dakota Department of Health’s emergency declaration.
Emergency authorized use COVID-19 vaccines are free of charge for BCBSND members. The vaccines themselves are paid through U.S. tax dollars. The costs to administer the vaccines are paid by BCBSND, resulting in no out-of-pocket costs for members. Because of our commitment to vaccinating North Dakota, if federal subsidies end, BCBSND will step in and pay for the vaccine.
All COVID-19 tests are covered, with the exception of occupational health testing.
