COVID-19 Extended Coverage Update

In support of our members, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota (BCBSND) has extended coverage for the following services through December 31, 2020:

COVID-19 treatment
BCBSND will waive out-of-pocket costs for the treatment of COVID-19, including hospital stays and outpatient treatment. This applies to fully insured members and self-funded plans that have opted in.

Early prescription refills
BCBSND is allowing pharmacies to refill prescriptions earlier than typically allowed, and most plans allow members to fill maintenance medications for up to a 90-day supply through local or mail-order pharmacies.

Wellness benefits
BCBSND is offering several benefits to members – everything from online exercise classes to mental health support to financial tools. Learn more about our wellness offerings

In addition, the following services will continue to remain in effect through the end of the COVID-19 emergency declaration:

COVID-19 testing
BCBSND will waive out-of-pocket costs for medically necessary laboratory COVID-19 testing for all members—that includes co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance. Cost-shares will be waived for an in-network provider office visit, urgent care center visit, or emergency room visit when testing for COVID-19. This applies to fully insured members and self-funded plans.

Telehealth
BCBSND is waiving cost-shares on telehealth visits for all services (not just COVID-19 related visits) when members seek care from in-network providers or our telehealth provider, Amwell. This applies to fully insured members and self-funded plans that have opted in.
