In a short period of time, the respiratory disease COVID-19 has become a global concern with widespread impact to our lives, health and work. Our dedicated team is closely monitoring the situation and taking proactive measures to meet the evolving needs of our participants.
Temporary Emergency Benefits
Virtual Office Visits for Health
Some health care providers who typically see patients in person are now offering virtual office visits online and over the phone. The Health Plan is providing coverage in these cases, during this state of emergency. Current deductibles, copays, coinsurance and allowances will apply, except for COVID-19 testing.
You also have access to virtual visits through your existing LiveHealth Online benefit.
Virtual Office Visits for Behavioral Health
MDLive is a telehealth service used by Beacon Health. This service, along with virtual office visits will be made available during the national COVID-19 emergency to maintain care for those who would typically need to visit a provider in person. Current deductibles, copays, coinsurance and allowances will apply.
