2021 Medical ID Cards

We will be re-carding everyone for 1/1/21 medical plan benefits.  The reason for this decision, is due to confusion that could arise due to the current card showing “Telehealth 0.”  The new card removes this piece of information because of the varying telehealth benefit as outlined below.

For MDLIVE Providers:

MDLIVE visits have the $0 copay for Platinum, Gold, & Silver plans, or Deductible then $0 copay for the Bronze plan.

  • During the national health emergency (through 12/31/2020) the deductible is waived for the Bronze plan for MDLIVE visits.

For Non-MDLIVE Providers:

The standard office visit benefit applies for virtual or telephonic visits with providers for clinical staff of primary care, general practice, internal medicine, pediatrics, OBGYN and associated nurse practitioners only, during the national health emergency, through 12/31/2020.  Starting 1/1/2021 the plan will cover virtual and telephonic visits with all non-MDLIVE providers at the applicable office visit benefit (including specialists).
