Have you heard? Carriers are continuing to take action and creating new avenues of support for those being affected by COVID-19. Different carriers are extending a range of cost-sharing waivers and benefits.
For example, if you are a member of an Aetna Medicare Advantage plan, all member cost-sharing and co-pay waivers for inpatient admissions for treatment of COVID-19 or health complications associated with COVID-19 have been extended. For more information, please visit frequently updated COVID-19 resource center.
UHC is also providing over $1.5 billion of additional support for our customers. In order to help members get the support they need, UHC is waiving cost-share for their Medicare Advantage plan members. For more information on how UHC is providing relief for their members, click here.
Humana is also waiving all cost sharing—including copays, coinsurance, and deductibles—for in-network primary care, behavioral health and telehealth visits for the remainder of the calendar year. The company is also proactively delivering safety kits to members’ homes, allowing them to access essential healthcare services safely and affordably. For more information about this, click HERE
