A White House briefing statement and a press release by California Congresswoman Linda Sanchez supports the claim.
According to the press release made by congresswoman Sanchez, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act on 13 March 2020 to provide free COVID-19 testing for uninsured patients.
The Public Health Service Act amendment bill published on Congresswoman Diana DeGette's official website shows that it requires group and individual health insurance coverage to cover COVID-19 testing without cost-sharing, which was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives in the Congress.
The amendment to the Public Health Service Act has been passed by the House of Representatives, and it is yet to be passed by the U.S. Senate.
