COVID-19 and your Devoted Health plan

For the most part, your coverage for COVID-19 is the same as for other illnesses, but there are a few specific things to keep in mind.

Vaccines and Booster Shots

The best way to protect yourself is to get all the COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots that are recommended for you.

Your plan covers COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots at no cost. 
Show your Devoted Health card or your Original Medicare card to get COVID-19 vaccines at no cost, including booster shots.

It’s important to get tested if you have any COVID-19 symptoms, or if you recently spent time with someone who found out they have COVID-19. 

There are 2 main types of COVID-19 tests:

  • PCR tests: With these tests, you usually go to a healthcare provider, pharmacy, or testing site and get your results later. This is the most accurate type of test.  
  • At-home rapid tests (also called antigen tests): These are tests you can do yourself at home. You get your results in about 10 to 15 minutes. Some testing sites and pharmacies may also offer rapid tests. 

Your plan covers COVID-19 PCR tests that a provider orders for you. 
For example, your provider may order a PCR test for you because you have COVID-19 symptoms, you were recently around someone who has COVID-19, or you need to test before an upcoming surgery. If you don’t have a provider’s order, we’ll pay for 1 PCR test each year. 

There’s no copay for the test itself, but if you get tested at a provider’s office, you may have a copay for the office visit. 

Your plan covers 8 at-home rapid tests per month at no cost.
You can get your free at-home test kits from any pharmacy or healthcare provider who participates in the Medicare at-home test kit program. This benefit will continue until the COVID-19 public health emergency ends.

To get your free tests, bring your Original Medicare card and your Devoted Health card to a participating pharmacy or provider.

Telehealth and Treatment

Your plan covers in-person and telehealth visits the same way.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic started, many doctors now use telehealth — visits by phone or online video — so you don't have to go to their office. You’re covered for these visits like any other visit. If your plan has a copay for in-person visits, you'll have a copay for telehealth too.

Your plan covers COVID-19 treatments. 
If your doctor prescribes an approved or authorized COVID-19 treatment (like an antiviral or monoclonal antibody treatment), your Devoted Health plan will cover it. These treatments can help you recover faster and make it less likely that you’ll need to go to the hospital. 

For other care, your plan's standard rules, costs, and coverage all apply to COVID-19. 
So, you're covered for doctor visits, hospital stays, and other care related to COVID-19 with the same costs that you have for other conditions.
