What to know about COVID-19 coverage and the ending of the Public Health Emergency

On May 11, 2023, the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) ended. As a result, some of your coverage benefits for COVID-19 may have changed.

While the PHE has ended, we recommend that you continue to follow guidelines and recommendations set by health experts. Visit the CDC to find updated information and guidance.

If you have questions about your coverage, call the number on your health plan ID card to talk with a Member Services representative.
