The Putnam/Northern Westchester Health Benefits Consortium Plan through Aetna will waive co-pays for all diagnostic testing related to COVID-19. This policy will cover the test kit for patients who meet CDC guidelines for testing, which can be done in any approved laboratory location. Aetna will waive the member costs associated with diagnostic testing at any authorized location for all Commercial and Medicare Advantage plan members.
For the next 90 days (beginning March 6, 2020), the Putnam/Northern Westchester Health Benefits Consortium Plan through Aetna will offer zero co-pay Teladoc visits for any reason. Aetna members should use Teladoc as their first line of defense in order to limit potential exposure in physician offices.
