What to Know About Coronavirus & Your Insurance

For the most up-to-the-minute updates about COVID-19 in Utah, visit coronavirus.utah.gov.

It’s important to know that the immediate risk from the coronavirus is low, but the CDC believes that the public health threat will be significant. Utahns can help the community stay healthy by washing their hands and avoiding people who appear sick — just like they would during any other flu season. If you or someone you know is diagnosed with COVID-19, your insurance company will be able to help.

Below are the actions Utah’s health insurers are taking to assist people affected by the coronavirus.
