Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Response

Important employee information related to COVID-19

Families First Coronavirus Response Act (HR 6201)

Recently, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (HR 6201) was passed containing important employee information related to COVID-19.

Medical Coverage for COVID-19 Testing

Retroactive to January 1, 2020, all self-insured medical plans, including Wright State University, will cover at 100% testing for COVID-19. This means that for all Wright State employees participating in our medical plans:

  • Testing in medical offices, emergency rooms, and urgent care facilities is all covered
  • No deductibles, copayments, or coinsurance apply for visit
  • No prior authorization or medical management is needed
  • Telehealth visits for testing are included

Please note that this does not apply for COVID-19 treatment presently so all normal co-pays and deductibles will apply should you need treatment.

In addition to covering telehealth visits for COVID-19, the university is expanding “free” telehealth coverage March 18 through June 14, 2020.

This means that your co-pay of $20 for PPO plan members and $59 for HDHP plan members are waived during this time. Encouraging utilization of Live Health Online supports Governor DeWine’s stay at home order and allows individuals to see a physician from their own home if needed.

Employees are encouraged to preregister for Live Health Online so that if and when a visit is needed, you do not have to be concerned with registration.

Emergency Paid Sick Leave

The federal regulations for COVID-19 emergency sick leave expired December 31, 2020, and are not being extended.
