Below is some information from the Funds Office regarding the coronavirus:
- The testing for coronavirus is being done right now through the Ohio Department of Health lab in Columbus.
- When there is a concern about a person with symptoms or exposure, they need to call a primary care physician, telemedicine provider or an ER to have their symptoms and situation assessed to determine the next step toward testing. They should call first, not go to the provider directly.
- There may be one or two major commercial labs that will start doing testing soon, but testing still has to have a physician referral, so the person needs to call a provider as described above.
There is a Coronavirus Call Line at the Ohio Department of Health that anyone can use to ask questions. The number is 1-833-427-5634. It is open 7 days a week from 9 am – 8 pm.
The two best sources of information that were recommended for employers and the public are the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Ohio Department of Health.
- The CDC website has information specifically for employers as well as many other resources:
- The Ohio Department of Health has a current count of cases and testing in Ohio and other resources at this link:
An option would be to promote “Telemedicine”. If a telemedicine provider suspects a patient may have coronavirus, then they could coordinate with the Ohio Department of Health and the CDC to authorize testing. The two options available in Northwest Ohio are ProMedica’s OnDemand and Mercyhealth Virtual Visit. Members can access by downloading apps to his/her mobile device or by visiting the website.
Members will be required to pay the full cost at the time of the visit. The Fund will reimburse 100% of the cost once the member submits a manual claim. Attached is a manual claim form. They are also available on the member portal.
