Important information regarding COVID testing

From MIT Medical:

Significant Others who live on campus should be tested regularly as part of Covid Pass. If they are off campus, they would not be part of the Covid Pass program, even if they have an MIT ID.

If Significant Others have their health coverage through MIT and get their primary care at MIT Medical, they can be tested by appointment at MIT Medical — not at the Covid Pass testing site. If they have symptoms of COVID-19, they should call the COVID-19 hotline at 617-253-4865, and someone will make arrangements for them to come in and be tested. That test will be covered by insurance, because they are sick.

If they have their health coverage through MIT and get their primary care at MIT Medical and need a test for another reason, like travel, they can get that test by making an appointment through Primary Care (617-258-9355). Because that test would not be considered medically necessary, it will not be covered by insurance, and they will get a bill for that test.

If they do not have their health coverage through MIT and get their primary care at MIT Medical, we cannot test them for COVID-19.
