State & Local Coronavirus Resources

The effects of all of Congress’ COVID-19 relief legislation are widespread, so I want to make sure you have the tools to navigate them and find the help you may need, including at the state and local level. Below is a list that will help you locate useful information and important resources. I would also encourage you to call the Ohio Department of Health’s call center if you have any COVID-19 related questions. It operates every day from 9:00 AM until 8:00 PM and can be reached at 1-833-4-ASK-ODH (1-833-427-5634). Additionally, you can visit the COVID-19 Dashboard where the most recent preliminary COVID-19 data reported to the Department is available for public review.

Health Insurance Coverage Flexibility for Ohio Employees 

  • The Ohio Department of Insurance has defined COVID-19 testing and treatment as an emergency medical condition under Ohio law. Such services must be covered without preauthorization at the highest level among three rates: in-network, out-of-network, or Medicare.

  • Health Insurance Corporations (HICs or HMOs) are required to pay for COVID-19 testing with no balance bill. Consumers with other health plans may receive an out-of-network bill that the insurer is not required to pay.

  • If you receive bills for testing and treatment of COVID-19, you should reach out to the Ohio Department of Insurance at insurance.ohio.gov to ensure claims are being processed according to guidance.
