Frequently Asked Questions 

 

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

  • Common signs include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties. The CDC & Apple recently released a coronavirus self-checker guide to help you make decisions and see appropriate medical care.

When should I call my doctor?

  • Call your doctor if you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing.

Is testing for COVID-19 a covered benefit?

  • We will cover the cost of copays, co-insurance and deductibles for COVID-19 testing for Commercial, Medicare and Medicaid members when recommended by a medical professional. The Health Plan’s self-funded (ASO) members will have cost-sharing for diagnostic testing related to COVID-19 waived unless the group does not implement this temporary relief option.

Can I continue to receive my medications?

  • Medicare and full-insured members can fill 90-day supplies of long-term medications through mail order or local retail pharmacies. The Health Plan’s Pharmacy Services Department is available to assist you if medication shortages or access issues arise. Please call the pharmacy number on the back of your THP ID card.

Can I use telemedicine?
