UnitedHealthcare is waiving member cost-sharing for the treatment of COVID-19 through May 31, 2020 for its fully-insured Commercial, Medicare Advantage and Medicaid plans. We will also work with self-funded customers who want us to implement a similar approach on their behalf. This builds on the company?s previously announced efforts to waive cost-sharing for COVID-19 testing and testing-related visits, and the expansion of other member services.
Starting March 31, 2020 until June 18, 2020, UnitedHealthcare will now also waive cost-sharing for in-network, non-COVID-19 telehealth visits for its fully-insured Commercial, Medicare Advantage, and Medicaid members. Again, we will work with self-funded customers who want us to implement a similar approach. The company previously announced we would waive cost-sharing for telehealth visits related to COVID-19 testing, in addition to waiving cost-sharing for 24/7 Virtual Visits with preferred telehealth partners.
