The West Virginia Public Employees Insurance Agency (PEIA) is establishing a policy to define the benefit and reimbursement regarding COVID-19 testing and treatment.
Effective March 1, 2020, PEIA will cover COVID-19 testing at 100% of the contracted allowance, at a network provider, for members who meet CDC guidelines for testing. This will apply to PEIA PPB Plans A, B, C and D. This means that members will have no out-of-pocket expense for the actual test. Deductibles, copayments, and coinsurance will also be waived for any physician or facility services incurred in the process of being tested.
Treatment of any members, who test positive for the virus, will be covered at normal benefit levels.
