DFS CIRCULAR LETTER REGARDING NO COST-SHARING  FOR VACCINES RELEASED

The CARES Act requires issuers to cover COVID-19 immunizations and their administration at no cost-sharing. The federal rules further provide that issuers must cover the administration of the immunization by any provider enrolled in the CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Program. The rules clarify that coverage is required, without cost-sharing, for the administration of the immunization even if a third party, such as the federal government, pays for the cost of the immunization. For additional guidance, view Insurance Circular Letter No. 16 (2020) here and see the Vaccines Updates below.

DFS CIRCULAR LETTER REGARDING NOT CHARGING MEMBERS FOR PPE RELEASED

Please be advised that participating providers should not charge their patients a fee or other charge for PPE in addition to the patient’s responsibility.  Providers have an obligation to ensure the safety of their patients and employees during all medical visits from routine check-ups to surgical procedures.
