Talking COVID-19 Impact on Health Plans

I recently joined my fellow Talking Benefits podcasters for another COVID-19-related episode, and this time we dove into health plan changes employers are making in response to the pandemic.

By tuning into this episode, you’ll learn more about:

  • Coronavirus testing coverage and cost-sharing requirements
  • Adjustments to prescription drug plans, including maintenance drugs and expenses reimbursable through FSAs, HSAs and HRAs
  • Mental health coverage and new offerings, including telepsychiatry
  • Telehealth/telemedicine offerings and considerations
  • Healthcare for furloughed employees.
