Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Trusted Information

2/5/2020

Most likely you are seeing news reports on the coronavirus (COVID-19). COVID-19 is most commonly spread through respiratory droplets, so you should take the same steps that health care providers recommend to prevent the spread of the flu and other viruses, including washing your hands, avoiding touching your face, and covering coughs and sneezes.

Here is what the PEBTF is doing to keep you and your family healthy. Check back to this website for updates: 


Costs Waived for Diagnostic Testing Under Your PEBTF/REHP Medical Plan

PEBTF/REHP medical plans will waive all copays and deductibles for COVID-19 diagnostic testing. This policy will cover the test kit for members who meet Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for testing in any approved laboratory location.

Zero copay for Teledoc

For the next 90 days, Choice PPO, Basic PPO offered by Aetna and Highmark and the Custom HMO plans offered by Aetna will offer zero copay Teladoc visits for any reason. Bronze Plan members: The visit is not subject to your deductible.
