Federal government will pay for COVID-19 treatment for uninsured


The federal government will use a portion of funds provided by Congressional relief acts to cover coronavirus testing and treatment for the uninsured, United States Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar said Friday.

Funding from the Families First Coronavirus Response Act will be used to cover testing and other diagnostic services for the uninsured, Azar explained during the daily White House coronavirus task force briefing.

“This should alleviate any concern uninsured Americans may have about seeking the coronavirus treatment,” President Donald Trump said Friday.
