Medicare Advantage plans have taken decisive action to keep Americans 65+ and the most vulnerable Americans with disabilities safe and healthy as the COVID-19 crisis continues.
Here’s how Medicare Advantage is working hard to protect you:
- Covering diagnostic testing, treatment, and vaccination for COVID-19 at no cost to patients.
- Ensuring that prescription drug refills are easily accessible: Many Medicare Advantage plans are providing members greater flexibility with prescription drug refills and home delivery of prescription drugs, giving Americans peace of mind when it comes to accessing necessary medication.
- Expanding covered telehealth services: Medicare Advantage plans are expanding telehealth services and waiving the cost of telehealth appointments by phone or video. Telehealth helps ensure patients can receive ongoing care for chronic, physical, and behavioral health services, while protecting patients and health care workers from unnecessary exposure to COVID-19.
Medicare Advantage members deserve to know they can count on the essential benefits and affordable, high-quality coverage they need to stay healthy, especially during critical times like the COVID-19 crisis. Medicare Advantage plans are committed to delivering better services, better access to care, and better value to the more than 26 million Americans 65+ and the most vulnerable Americans with disabilities who rely on the program.
