BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee will waive Medicare Advantage member costs for doctor’s office and virtual visits to in-network primary care and behavioral health care providers from May 19 through Sept. 30.
“Many Tennessee seniors may have been following safety protocols and postponing health care visits over the past few months,” said Todd Ray, senior vice president and general manager of senior products. “We hope this enhanced coverage will bring peace of mind, help remove barriers and encourage people to seek the routine and preventive care they need.”
In addition to these efforts, BlueCross has invested in a number of advancements to support better health for Tennesseans impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. These include:
Continuing to pay the full costs of COVID-19 testing
Paying full treatment costs for COVID-19 care, including hospitalizations, through May 31, 2020
The BlueCross Medicare Advantage plan, which has earned five consecutive 4-Star ratings for quality from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, offers Tennesseans access to a robust network of health care providers who share the company’s commitment to improving health outcomes for members.
