    NC STATE HEALTH PLAN | CORONAVIRUS UPDATES:

    Update as of March 15, 2021:  "The COVID-19 vaccine is currently being administered to certain populations.  Please visit the NC Department of Health and Human Services to learn more about the vaccination rollout to determine if you are eligible.  Once eligible, members will need to contact their local health department for assistance. 

    When you are eligible to receive the vaccine, there will be no cost for members, it will be covered 100% by the State Health Plan.  While there is no member cost, the SHP is paying for the administration of the vaccine, which is why it is important to present your ID card.  The vaccine is currently being paid for by the federal government. 

    SHP Extends Cost Waivers for Testing and Treatment of COVID-19.  The State Health Plan is extending the waiver of costs for COVID-19 screening visits, COVID-19 diagnostic tests, and the treatment (medical treatment only) for members diagnosed with COVID-19, including associated deductibles, copayments and coinsurance.  Any medications prescribed will be subject to the copay/coinsurance.  The waiver is in effect until March 31, 2021.  The Plan is waiving the cost associated with the testing of COVID-19 regardless of site of service (where you receive the test) to ensure there are no-cost barriers to testing.  Testing and treatment at an out-of-network provider may incur non-reimbursable charges. This waiver is in effect until the federal CARES Act requirement expires.  The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was signed into law in March 2020." 

    "Many providers are now offering telehealth or virtual visits.  These types of visits are covered and the applicable copay for a PCP office visit will apply.  Employees will need to call their provider to determine if these services are offered.  Other types of providers are offering virtual services for things such as behavioral health, physical therapy and wellness visits.  The State Health Plan is extending the coverage of video and telehealth visits through June 30, 2021.  The Plan is taking this action so employees can continue to limit personal contact to help contain the COVID-19 outbreak." "The Plan is waiving the copay for in-person and virtual Primary Care Provider (PCP) visits to screen for COVID-19. Screening visits will not be subject to your deductible or coinsurance, even if your deductible has not been met. This waiver is in effect until the federal CARES Act requirement expires"

    "The State Health Plan continues to work with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (Blue Cross NC and CVS Caremark to ensure you have benefits in place and remove any barriers to needed care for Members on the 80/20 Plan, 70/30 Plan and High Deductible Health Plan. "
