    STATE HEALTH PLAN INFORMATION UPDATE:  The State Health Plan Extends Cost Waivers for Testing and Treatment of COVID-19.  "The State Health Plan is extending the waiver of costs for COVID-19 screening visits, COVID-19 diagnostic tests, and the treatment (medical treatment only) of employees diagnosed with COVID-19, including associated deductibles, copayments and coinsurance. The employee cost-share waiver for COVID-19 related screening visits and diagnostic tests will remain in place until the federal CARES Act requirement expires, while the treatment cost waiver will remain in place until October 31, 2020, at which time it will be re-evaluated. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was signed into law in March 2020." 

    "Many providers are now offering telehealth or virtual visits.  These types of visits are covered and the applicable copay for a PCP office visit will apply.  Employees will need to call their provider to determine if these services are offered.  Other types of providers are offering virtual services for things such as behavioral health, physical therapy and wellness visits.  The State Health Plan is extending the coverage of video and telehealth visits through December 31, 2020.  The Plan is taking this action so employees can continue to limit personal contact to help contain the COVID-19 outbreak."
