News & Updates

3/3/23 Update: The White House recently announced plans to end the federal COVID-19 emergency effective end of day May 11, 2023. This will likely mean coverage changes for COVID-19 lab testing and related visit, over-the-counter (OTC) testing, COVID-19 vaccines, recovery treatments, and telehealth services. The amount you pay for these services will depend upon your plan. We will keep you updated as we learn more about these changes.
