COVID-19 Safety Guidelines and Testing Coverage:
The safety of our employees remains our top priority. All employees should continue to follow the COVID-19 Travel Restrictions and COVID-19 Health and Hygiene guidelines.

  • If your healthcare provider has confirmed that you are at risk and should be tested for COVID-19, this test will be covered under all Boston Scientific Medical Plans (PPO, HDHP and HMO) at 100%. All regular copayments, coinsurance and deductible amounts will be waived, so that your out-of-pocket expenses will be $0. 
  • If you choose to be tested at your own discretion, without recommendation of your physician or as a requirement by a healthcare facility, coverage of that test is subject to applicable deductibles and co-payments pursuant to your health insurance plan.
