As of October 30, 2020, ICP’s current updates on telehealth and insurance:
Beacon, HIP, Emblem Health and GHI– will continue to pay their members copays or deductibles as follows:
- Non-essential workers through November 9th, 2020. Starting November 10th, non-essential workers will begin to pay their copays or deductibles again.
- Essential workers through November 27th, 2020. Starting November 28th, essential workers will begin to pay their copays or deductibles again.
- If your patient’s job is classified as an essential worker, please fill out the form below asap so we can verify. We have not been told what jobs are considered essential workers, so will check on every patient who believes their job falls in to that classification.
Healthfirst, Optum—no information yet.
There are a small handful of patients whose insurance plans have already stopped paying their copays. We will be sending their therapists emails with this information.
