(WXYZ) — Spectrum Health and HAP are offering free coronavirus testing resources.

HAP announced that it will waive cost-sharing associated with laboratory testing for COVID-19. HAP members who are tested for the virus will not be asked for any copay, co-insurance or deductible for their lab tests.

The waiving applies to HAP's Medicare, Medicaid and individual members, along with fully ensured employer group customers.

Spectrum Health is offering free virtual screenings for people who are concerned that they may have the virus. Spectrum has established a hotline where people can call and schedule a free virtual screening visit.

During the video screening, individuals will be asked a series of questions about their condition by a health provider who will advise whether they need to seek additional care.

It is not required to be a Spectrum Health patient to use the service.
