COVID-19 TESTING AND RELATED SERVICES
 
For our Medicare Supplement members, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has stated Medicare will cover the lab tests for COVID-19 testing. Beneficiaries will pay no out-of-pocket costs for testing or related hospital expenses. Please visit Medicare.gov for more information concerning CMS’s response to COVID-19.
 
 
PROTECT YOURSELF
 

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water (or alcohol-based hand rub) for at least 20 seconds, especially after coughing or sneezing.  Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with your arm or a tissue.
  • Clean and disinfect objects (i.e. cell phone, computer) and high-touch surfaces regularly.
  • While 80-85% of those who contract COVID-19 will experience mild or no symptoms, some people are at higher risk of experiencing severe symptoms from this illness. This high-risk group includes older adults and those who have serious medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes or lung disease. If you are at a higher risk of getting very sick from COVID-19, you should:
  • Stock up on supplies like food, toiletries and medicines.
  • Keep space between yourself and others.
  • When in public, keep away from others who are sick, limit close contact and wash hands often. Avoid crowds as much as possible.
  • Avoid cruise travel and non-essential air travel.
  • During a COVID-19 outbreak in your community, stay home as much as possible to reduce risk of exposure.
