Behavioral health and virtual care options during COVID-19

Telehealth

  • Effective for dates of service on or after January 1, 2021, plans returned to their standard benefit levels and any applicable member copays or other cost share will be applied to all non-COVID telehealth services. The one exception is for primary care and behavioral health telemedicine services for members of commercial Rhode Island-issued plans, for which cost share will continue to be waived until August 7, 2021.
  • Member cost share will continue to be waived for COVID-related, in-network, medically necessary services. A COVID-19 diagnosis must be submitted with the claim for the waived cost share to continue to apply.
  • For members with access to Teladoc® there is no change to the policy and telehealth visits through Teladoc will continue to have no cost share. This includes non-COVID-19 related general medicine, behavioral health and dermatology.1 Learn more about Telehealth provided by Teladoc.
