Information from PEIP Related to COVID-19 Coverage
Costs are fully covered for COVID-19 testing and test-related care. Starting on March 18, we will cover the full costs of a COVID-19 test or testing-related care (such as primary care visit) for you and covered family members. You will not be responsible for any copays, coinsurance, or costs toward your deductible. Remember, COVID-19 testing is limited, so make sure you meet the requirements and call before you go in for testing.
Reminder: Use free online care for common illnesses or COVID-19 screening. As a part of your benefits you receive free online care visits. This allows you to discuss your condition with a health care provider and make a treatment plan from the safety and convenience of your home, whether it's related to COVID-19 or common illnesses, such as sinus infections. Use your health plan administrator's designated vendor to access these services.
