From the Introduction: "The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic continues in 2021. As private health insurance is the predominant source of health coverage in the United States, there is considerable congressional interest in understanding private health insurance coverage of health benefits related to COVID-19 diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. This report addresses frequently asked questions about covered benefits and consumer cost sharing related to COVID-19 testing, treatment, and vaccination. It explains relevant legislation enacted in 2020, references existing federal requirements, discusses applicable administrative guidance, and notes state and private-sector actions. It begins with background information on types and regulation of private health insurance plans."
