Employee Covid-19 Testing

In response to medical conditions associated with COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Nevada Division of Insurance issued an emergency regulation regarding testing.

If a covered member has been exposed to, or are experiencing systems of the virus, it is essential to know as soon as possible whether they have the virus to limit exposure to others and to obtain any needed medical attention or treatment. Accordingly, effective March 5, 2020, our self-insurance plan will not require payment a deductible, coinsurance, or co-payment for a provider office visit, urgent care center, or emergency room visit when the purpose of the visit is to be tested for COVID-19 in accordance with CDC guidelines.

Please notify Hometown Health as soon as possible if you receive services from an out-of-network provider. Members will not be required to pay a deductible, coinsurance, or copayment for COVID-19 testing.

Members will not be required to pay a deductible, coinsurance, or copayment for the COVID-19 immunization (vaccine) when it becomes available.

Members may receive non-formulary prescription drugs when a formulary drug is not available to treat the medical condition; this does not apply when a therapeutic alternative is available. Non-formulary prescription drugs require prior authorization in order to cover the medication; standard prescription drug cost sharing applies based on plan design.

This will remain in effect until the Nevada Division of Insurance withdraws or rescinds the emergency regulation governing COVID-19 (or it expires). Contact Human Resources if you have any questions.
