As we begin to reopen campuses to deliver services to students and a very limited number of face to face courses, the following toolkit for employees will be helpful in answering questions and providing information.
COVID-19 Safety Tips for Faculty
TCSIG and COVID-19 Testing
With the passage of Families First Coronavirus Response Act, Federal Guidelines mandate coverage for COVID-19 testing and states that private health plans, fully-insured and self-insured plans, are now required to provide coverage for COVID-19, which include: Diagnostic testing, cost of provider, urgent care center and emergency room visits (in order to receive testing), and any related medical services.
The coverage provided for testing as noted above, must be at no cost to the consumer. Please note that the current mandate does not require coverage for treatment. Accordingly, Delta Health Systems has removed the member’s share of cost for the above listed services on all TCSIG plans. However, all costs related to the treatment of COVID-19 remain. (see examples below)
Example 1. – Member on HDHP goes into a provider to get tested for COVID-19. The member’s deductible and coinsurance would not apply and testing include office visit and lab work would be covered at 100% no share of cost for the member.
Example 2. – Member on HDHP has received a diagnosis of COVID-19 and is admitted into the hospital for treatment. The member’s deductible and coinsurance would apply and the member would have the same share of cost as they would any other illness.
Please visit https://www.deltahealthsystems.com/Home/Covid19Updates or call (800) 464-7627 or if you have any additional questions regarding the coverage of COVID-19 as it currently applies to Tri-County Schools Insurance Group.
