Priority Health Has Some Changes Regarding COVID-19 Cost Sharing and Coverage Extensions
To continue to support the physicians and their members as COVID-19 cases rise in the community, Priority Health is extending many temporary changes into 2021.
Telehealth at $0 extended, reimbursement continues at in-person rates
Priority Health will continue to offer $0 cost share for telehealth services, including medical, behavioral health and substance use, for nearly all fully funded HSA and non-HSA plans ahead of deductible as well as most Medicare plans throughout 2021. They are also continuing to reimburse for telehealth services at in-person rates.
Treatment for COVID-19
Priority Health is going to continue to waive all copays, deductibles and coinsurance for medically necessary treatment of COVID-19 through March 31, 2021.
This means all fully funded commercial, individual, Medicaid and Medicare members can get the treatment they need for COVID-19 with no out-of-pocket health insurance costs.
Covered treatment may be inpatient or outpatient from an in-network provider. Patients must have a confirmed primary COVID-19 diagnosis and be receiving evidence-based care for treatment to be fully covered.
COVID-19 vaccine coverage
When a COVID-19 vaccine is available to the public, all members will have no out-of-pocket costs. As Priority Health gets more details about coding, billing and reimbursement, they’ll share those details.
