  • Up to 4 tests per member per 30-day period

COVID-19 testing coverage

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

Coverage includes:

  • 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 for a $10 copay

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 $10 per telehealth visit when you use the plan’s providers.

  • 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.
