LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan health insurers say they will cover the cost of medically necessary tests for the new coronavirus for people covered under employer and individual health plans.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, meanwhile, announced late Friday the waiving of testing and treatment fees for Medicaid recipients.

Michigan currently has no known COVID-19 cases, but infections have been identified in about half of the states.
