SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nomi Health, the direct healthcare company delivering easy access to low-cost care across the U.S., today announced that it is continuing coverage of Covid-19 testing and vaccinations for anyone with a valid U.S. address, regardless of insurance status. Nearly 100 days after the end of federal funding, Nomi Health continues to be one of the only companies in the nation to welcome uninsured Americans to its testing and vaccination sites nationwide at no out-of-pocket cost.
We will continue to be the solution where the government or traditional healthcare falls short, particularly in ensuring access to care for the most underserved and vulnerable populations across the country,
“We will continue to be the solution where the government or traditional healthcare falls short, particularly in ensuring access to care for the most underserved and vulnerable populations across the country,” said Mark Newman, co-founder and CEO, Nomi Health. “Our sites remain open for anyone to be tested and vaccinated. This is part of our mission to provide easy access to quality care, especially as case counts rise in communities across our country.”
Nomi Health’s policy of no out-of-pocket cost testing has enabled those in the most disadvantaged rural and urban areas to receive Covid-19 testing and vaccinations, including in its work in Miami-Dade County under the leadership of Mayor Daniella Levine Cava. Since the company first began testing in April 2020, the company has served more than 14 million patients, zero of whom have received a bill from Nomi Health. Nearly half (44 percent) of the company’s patients live in a ZIP code where the poverty rate is greater than 15 percent.
The federal Health Resources and Service Administration's (HRSA) Uninsured Program stopped accepting reimbursement claims for Covid-19 testing and treatment services from those uninsured on March 22, 2022, and stopped accepting claims for vaccine administration shortly after on April 5th.
Those without a domestic address and no health insurance will be charged $75 per PCR test, $50 per rapid antigen test and $40 for vaccine administration, including international travelers seeking convenient testing options.
