The member’s normal cost share for the treatment of COVID-19 in all places of service will resume. For inpatient hospitalizations, we will use the date of admission for claims processing. If the patient was admitted before September 1, 2021, their cost share will continue to be waived during their hospitalization, through date of discharge
To help our members during the COVID-19 pandemic, Florida Blue implemented several temporary provisions. As you know, these exceptions were always intended to be temporary in nature given the unique situation presented during this pandemic. We are resuming several processes, including member cost-shares. These changes are effective September 1, 2021.
While the above referenced items are changing September 1, 2021, the following services will continue: The medical diagnostic test for COVID-19 will continue to be available to members at $0 cost share through the end of the Federal Public Health Emergency (currently October 18, 2021). Testing-related visits and services, whether in a provider’s office, outpatient setting or via telemedicine services that result in an order for the COVID-19 test, are at $0 cost share to our members. We continue to cover the full cost of the COVID-19 vaccines that have been approved or received emergency use authorization by the FDA to prevent COVID-19.
