Trustees Amend Plan for COVID-19 Testing

The Carpenters Health and Security Plan of Western Washington covers testing for COVID-19 disease without cost-sharing, according to a Summary of Material Modifications just released by the Board of Trustees. If a participant's or dependent's physician recommends testing for COVID-19, the Plan will cover the test and the office visit or telehealth consultation associated with the test at 100%. These services will not be subject to the annual deductible, coinsurance, or office visit copayment. This change applies to participants and dependents with dollar bank eligibility, Self-Contribution and COBRA coverage and Retiree Coverage, and applies for all dates of service.
