Employers not previously enrolled in KDHE’s employer testing program will be responsible for covering the costs of their testing programs. Employers who were testing more than 10% of their workforce more than every two weeks will also be responsible for covering the cost of testing in excess of the program allowances.
In addition, as of April 1, 2022, all employers, including those previously enrolled in KDHE’s employer testing program, will be responsible for covering the costs of their testing programs.
As of April 2022, employers wishing to process tests through commercial or university labs will need to cover the cost of testing or make sure the lab is set up to bill third party payers. Alternatively, employers can purchase point-of-care testing equipment from manufacturers to stand up an on-site testing program.
Note this program does not meet the testing requirements of the new OSHA mandate regarding COVID testing for employers with >100 employees coming into effect in January.
