COVID-19 benefits for High Option members

APWU Health Plan is committed to providing High Option members with the latest updates about COVID-19 testing, treatments, and vaccines.

COVID-19 vaccines

Who can receive a vaccine?

COVID-19 vaccination recommendations from the CDC are based on input from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). If vaccine supply is limited, ACIP is considering four groups to recommend for early vaccination:

  • Health care personnel
  • Workers in essential and critical industries
  • People at high risk for severe COVID-19 illness due to underlying medical conditions
  • People age 65 years and older
If I’m eligible for a vaccine, where can I receive it?

Visit the CDC online to find where you can get a COVID-19 vaccine. Under How Do I Get a Vaccine?, choose your state or territory to find the website of your local public health department. APWU Health Plan will cover the administration cost of the vaccine.

Testing and treatment coverage

APWU Health Plan covers COVID-19 testing and treatment at no cost for members. If you have questions, contact your primary care doctor or clinic.

Coverage includes:
  • In-network inpatient and outpatient care for COVID-19 treatment
  • Visits to health care providers, urgent care centers, and the emergency room when the visit results in an order for or administration of a COVID-19 diagnostic test
  • COVID-19 testing when a clinical professional prescribes it, including antibody testing

Telehealth visits are available at no cost

Virtual visits are a great option for both medical and mental health care when you need to see a doctor without leaving home. As an APWU Health Plan member, you pay $0 per telehealth visit when you use the plan’s providers. The plan waives all deductibles, coinsurance, and copays.

  • See and talk to a doctor 24 /7 from your phone, tablet, or computer.
  • If needed, doctors can send a prescription to your local pharmacy.
