Insurance Coverage when on Layoff

For those of you that are on layoff and are concerned about your Medical Benefits.
Medical Benefits are good through the end of the month after the month in which the lay off began.  Plus amount of time in the following Table:

Please be advised that Supplemental employees who are not reinstated in May will have their benefits continued through June.  Likewise, laid-off In-Progression employees with less than one year of service who would normally lose coverage will also have their benefits continued through June.  Traditional members’ dental coverage will be extended as well.  A communication will be sent to the employees and will be similar to the communication sent to them in April and May.

BENEFITS for layed off personnel

Please be advised that Supplemental employees who are not reinstated in May will have their benefits continued through June.  Likewise, laid-off In-Progression employees with less than one year of service who would normally lose coverage will also have their benefits continued through June.  Traditional members’ dental coverage will be extended as well.  A communication will be sent to the employees and will be similar to the communication sent to them in April and May.

Updated information regarding S&A.

1.  Through June 30, 2020, the Company will continue to relax the time frames for treatment with nurse practitioners/physician assistants and non-psychiatrist mental health providers.  This should assist employees with continuing to remain eligible for S&A while medical practices are still working on a return to more normal operations.  Note: We plan to return to the 14 day and 60 day allowed certification periods on July 1st, however, if there are still substantial health care access issues at that time, we will revisit this.

2.  The Company has not been scheduling DEP exams since the beginning of March.  At this point, they will continue to refrain from scheduling exams through the end of June 2020.  It makes sense to wait until employees have better access to their health care providers and to medical services which have been limited during the pandemic.

3.  At this time, the Company will continue to accept telehealth treatment for disability claims.  We have seen many employees utilize telehealth over the past couple of months, and it has worked out well from a disability claim perspective.

We’d like to inform you that FCA will be covering the COVID-19 testing paid by FCA at 100%. All Carriers have been notified of this benefit.
