After your COVID-19 test(s), you may receive an Explanation of Benefits letter (EOB) from your insurance company – this is not a bill and does NOT mean you owe a balance to Universal Genetics for your COVID-19 test(s). Your insurance company’s payment will be treated as a payment in full, based on current regulations under the CARES Act and FFCRA. You are not responsible for paying any outstanding balance shown on your EOB. If you provided us with insurance information when you registered for your appointment, you won’t pay anything out-of-pocket.
