COVID-19: Helping you stay informed

COVID-19 is a respiratory disease caused by a new virus (SARS-CoV-2) that can be transmitted from person to person.

In a short period of time, COVID-19 has become a global concern at the forefront of all our minds. We understand the uncertainty our participants may be feeling, and as your health plan, we want to assure you that your safety and health are our top priority.

Our dedicated team is closely monitoring the situation and has taken proactive measures to enable our staff to continue working through these events remotely, to protect their health and continue serving the needs of our participants.

As we make this transition, you may experience some delays in reaching us. We appreciate your patience as we work to help maintain the health of our members and employees.
