Coronavirus (COVID-19)

People lined up along a white wall standing socially distanced from each other.

As a community health plan, we're working to limit the spread of this virus and promote access to vaccinations, screening, testing and medically necessary treatment.

COVID-19 vaccine information

See the FDA and CDC websites for updates. Both agencies make recommendations on COVID-19 vaccine distribution. There is also information available from Wisconsin's Department of Health Services.
 
Prevea360 will cover FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine(s) (SARS CoV-2) with no member cost-sharing, consistent with the requirements set forth by the CARES Act.

The Department of Health Services (DHS) now offers a newsletter you can sign up for to get direct information about the COVID-19 response and vaccine rollout.

  • Testing for current infection: When a provider orders COVID-19 diagnostic testing, member cost-sharing is waived, meaning no copayment, coinsurance, or deductible. 
  • Testing for past infection: When a provider orders COVID-19 antibody testing, member cost-sharing is waived, meaning no copayment, coinsurance, or deductible.

 

What to do when you have symptoms of COVID-19

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers guidance on symptoms and when to contact your medical provider.

If you're experiencing symptoms, you can initiate a Prevea Virtual Care visit . A provider will help determine your next steps.. If testing is recommended, you will be directed to the nearest testing site.

If you are not experiencing symptoms but are concerned about a potential exposure, you should seek free testing through the nearest community testing site. Locations can be found through the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.

Expanded telehealth services

Prevea360 Health Plan is currently expanding its coverage of telehealth services. This allows additional methods of health care access for members such as Skype, FaceTime or Zoom.

Members should contact their provider to determine if the services they need may be provided through a telehealth option. Standard member cost sharing applies for telehealth visits not related to COVID-19 screening or testing.

Expanded telehealth services for our Administrative Services Only (ASO) Network members will be available to employer groups at their discretion.

Getting care not related to COVID-19

We understand you still need access to important health care during the pandemic. At Prevea360 Health Plan, our top priority is the health and safety of our patients, caregivers and communities. If you need to visit one of our physician offices, urgent care clinics or emergency rooms, rest assured we have extensive precautions in place.

We encourage using Prevea Virtual Care and Prevea Care After Hours to limit the potential spread of the virus to those in waiting rooms as well as medical staff.
