COVID-19

The health and well-being of our employees is our top priority for Incora. With coronavirus (COVID-19) in the news, we understand you might have concerns about your and your family’s health. Starting immediately, Blue Shield is waiving all cost-sharing and any prior approval for COVID-19 testing prescribed by a physician. This benefit update applies to employees and members covered under the Blue Shield plans.

Here are some helpful tips to prevent the spread of any respiratory illness – including COVID-19:

  • Wash your hands often – and for at least 20 seconds - with soap and water
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Stay home when you’re sick
  • Cover your mouth when you cough, or sneeze into a tissue and throw the tissue in the trash
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces such as television     remotes, mobile phones, earphones, desk surfaces and your computer mouse,     door handles and knobs
