Should TCU employees be tested for COVID-19?

Last Updated May 14, 2021

TCU Human Resources has given consent for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas (required for self-insured employers) to provide COVID-19 diagnostic testing without requiring members to pay co-payments or deductibles, or providers to seek prior authorization. The same coverage applies to high-deductible health plans at TCU. Of course, diagnostic testing must be deemed medically necessary and consistent with CDC guidance.

BCBSTX is communicating with covered members, and updates will be posted to the HR website.
