Health Coverage & Employee Leave of Absense 

Latest Update:

  • Group Coverage for “Fully Insured” Plans - Aetna, Cigna,  United Healthcare and  Independence Blue Cross have announced they are waiving all member cost sharing for the coronavirus test. This includes copayments, deductibles and coinsurance for traditional plans and qualified high deductible plans. In the event one needs medical care related to coronavirus after being tested, such care shall be covered like any medical condition under their plan as it relates to physician and facility care.
  • Group Coverage for “Self-Insured” Plans - All self-funded plans should amend their plans to waive the cost of the test. This can be a temporary plan change. Covering the test without member cost sharing has no impact on stop loss coverage. If a self-funded plan is not directed to be amended, member cost sharing (if any) will apply to the test.
