Patients Do Not Need to Pay in Advance for COVID-19 Testing

Madison, Wisconsin – Patients are not required to pay in advance for COVID-19 testing, treatment or follow-up care at a UW Health facility. While patients may be billed for these services later, UW Health does not want anyone who is recommended for testing to postpone having the test or any treatment due to concerns about cost. COVID-19 testing and follow-up care will qualify for the UW Health Financial Assistance Program.


Any patient with COVID-19 symptoms (fever, cough or shortness of breath) should call or send a MyChart message to their primary care clinic if they have one, or the UW Health COVID-19 Hotline at (608) 720-5300.
