    STATE HEALTH PLAN INFORMATION UPDATE as of APRIL 20, 2020:  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.  "The Plan is waiving the cost of treatment for Members diagnosed with COVID-19 including associated deductibles, copayments and coinsurance. The member cost-share waiver for COVID-19 related treatments is effective immediately through June 1, 2020, at which time the Plan will continue to re-evaluate this and other measures. The Plan previously announced that it was also covering the cost associated with the testing of COVID-19 regardless of site of service (where employees receive the test) to ensure there are no cost barriers to testing.  Screening visits will not be subject to the deductible or coinsurance, even if the deductible has not been met. "

    "In addition, for new hires, the Plan is waiving the requirement for tobacco users to visit a CVS MinuteClinic for a tobacco cessation counseling session in order to receive a $60 premium reduction on their subscriber monthly premium on the 80/20 and 70/30 plans.  This waiver for new Plan members is in effect through June 1, 2020, at which time the Plan will re-evaluate.  The Plan is taking this action so members can continue to limit personal contact during stay-at-home orders to help contain the coronavirus outbreak."

    "Many providers are now offering tele-health 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."
