Am I Covered?

As a BMC HealthNet Plan member, we want you to know we have you covered. 

These are confusing times and we want to help make things a little easier for you. Here’s how we have you covered:

  • COVID-19 testing and medically necessary treatment are covered at no cost to members.
  • Telehealth visits are covered if you use a network provider that offers telehealth appointments. Not all providers offer a telehealth option, so you’ll need to call their office to confirm. Telehealth appointments cost the same as in-person doctor’s appointments. We also cover telepsychiatry visits for our members. To find out if your psychiatrist offers a telehealth option, please call and ask them. Telehealth visits regarding COVID-19 testing and treatment will be provided at no cost to you.
  • Our Mail Order Pharmacy Program can deliver medications directly to your door so you don’t need to leave your home. You may also be able to fill certain prescriptions early to help you limit how often you leave the house.

As your health insurance plan we'll cover the cost of you being tested for coronavirus if it's recommended by your PCP. Your doctor will provide you with instructions about the testing process that you need to follow specifically for COVID-19.

Please note, if your plan type has cost-sharing responsibility, your copays will be waived for treatment of the virus. If your plan has copayments, deductibles, and co-insurance for services, those will also be waived for COVID-19 treatment.
