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.

FAQs

I am a current employee in the YCCD district. When do I have to show proof of vaccination or undergo weekly testing?

The effective date of the YCCD vaccination and testing policy is December 1, 2021, for all faculty, staff, administrators, student employees and volunteers. As of that date, all employees must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or submit to weekly testing to be on any YCCD campus or participate in any face-to-face district activities for more than 15 minutes.

How do I show proof of vaccination or testing documentation?

Submit your vaccine record or testing documentation to https://apps.yccd.edu/tracker or through Portal Guard and clicking the COVID Tracker tile.

I lost my vaccine card. How can I request for a new card?

If you lost your vaccine card, please go to https://myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov/ to get a digital copy of your vaccine record.

How do I get tested?

Testing is offered at each campus location. Walk-in appointments are available for employees and students. The YCCD website provides information regarding the location and hours of operation. There are many other locations that also offer testing. Employees and students can get PCR testing for COVID-19 from other medical providers to meet testing requirements. You will need to upload results from your third-party PCR testing in the COVID Tracker.

Are all the COVID-19 vaccines accepted?

Vaccines must be FDA approved; have an emergency use authorization from the FDA; or, for persons fully vaccinated outside the United States, be listed for emergency use by the World Health Organization (WHO). “Fully vaccinated” means the District has documented that the person received, at least 14 days prior, either the second dose in a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine series or a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine. (8 CCR § 3205(b)(9).) Employees may request paid leave from Human Resources for obtaining a COVID-19 vaccine and any illness related to it.

What about vaccine boosters?

If COVID-19 vaccine boosters become necessary to prevent the contraction and transmission of the virus that causes COVID-19, students and employees will need to get boosters. At this time, booster shots are not required. This could change if the public health authorities, including the CDC, the California Department of Public Health (“CDPH”), or the County Department of Public Health indicate that a COVID-19 vaccine booster is necessary based on the COVID-19 vaccine that the employee received and the date upon which they became fully vaccinated.

Will I have to wear a mask on campus?

As of Monday, August 16, 2021 Masks will need to be worn by anyone (students, faculty, staff, visitors) on a campus of the Yuba Community College District.

I am only going to teach online classes. Do I need to be vaccinated or tested?

No. Faculty who are only teaching online classes do NOT need to be vaccinated or tested.

I am choosing to get tested weekly. When does my test result expire?

Each employee is expected to get tested weekly on the date of their original test date. If you are not using Virus Geeks as a testing facility, then you are expected to post the test results on COVID Tracker as soon as you receive them. If COVID Tracker shows your status as red, this indicates that you cannot physically be on the district premises until the testing issue is resolved.

How do I seek a medical accommodation for the vaccine/testing requirement?

If you are interested in requesting a medical accommodation, please use the link for "Medical Accommodation Form". "yccd.edu/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/Reasonable-Accomodation-Healthcare-Provider-Certification.pdf".
