The average cost to treat a hospitalized patient with COVID-19 is $30,000 and can often exceed this figure depending on the patient’s condition, according to a study from America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP). By continuing to waive the standard cost-sharing requirements, Minnesota health plans are stepping up to support affordability and easier access to care during the health crisis.
Plans that have committed to this extension include:
- Blue Cross and Blue Shield/Blue Plus of Minnesota
- Hennepin Health
“Minnesota’s nonprofit health plans continue to recognize the impact COVID-19 is having throughout the state and are committed to supporting members throughout this crisis,” said Lucas Nesse, President and CEO of the Council.
