AVMED EXPANDS CORONAVIRUS MEMBER BENEFITS AND SERVICES
AvMed is encouraging you to immediately call your healthcare provider if you are experiencing symptoms or think you may have been exposed to coronavirus. You and your families are our top priority so we’ve removed the financial barriers to care by providing you with an expanded list of benefits and services below.
Zero Cost Treatment: To make it as simple as possible for you, AvMed is waiving out-of-pocket costs for all COVID-19 treatment. AvMed will also administer a waiver for self-funded group health plans at their request. The treatments covered at no out-of-pocket cost for COVID-19 are those covered under Medicare or other applicable state regulations.

No Specialist Referral Requirements: To improve access to care during this difficult time, AvMed will also waive primary care-to-specialist referrals related to coronavirus testing and services.
Increased Access to Prescription Medications: AvMed, in partnership with CVS Health, is also waiving early refill limits on 30-day prescriptions for maintenance medications and providing home delivery of all prescription medications free of charge.
