Reminder: COVID-19 Inpatient Treatment Covered with No Member Cost Sharing through Dec. 31, 2020
As a reminder, Medical Mutual continues to waive member cost sharing for inpatient treatment related to COVID-19 through 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 31, 2020. Treatment includes hospitalizations and ground ambulance transfers for individuals with a positive COVID-19 diagnosis. This applies to services provided by both in-network and out-of-network providers.
Beginning on Jan. 1, 2021, member cost sharing will apply for these services at the in-network benefit level, consistent with regulatory requirements.
This decision applies to our fully insured groups and groups enrolled in the COSE MEWA. Most self-funded groups are following Medical Mutual's corporate decision, although a small number of groups have selected an alternate date for their coverage.
