Does the State of Michigan require healthcare providers to have patients tested for COVID19 prior to performing a surgery/procedure?

No. There is no State requirement for patient testing prior to a procedure, but people undergoing surgery are eligible for testing before a surgery or procedure. Hospitals and healthcare facilities may have their own rules for testing prior to medical procedures.

Health care providers use professional judgement to determine whether or not testing is reasonable prior to a procedure. If you have a procedure scheduled, you should contact your doctor if you have questions about your procedure, including any potential testing.
