As a community health plan, we're working to limit the spread of this virus and promote access to vaccinations, screening, testing and medically necessary treatment.

COVID-19 vaccine information


The CDC recommends everyone age 12 and older get a COVID-19 vaccination to help protect against COVID-19.

Booster update: The booster dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is only available for eligible people that have received the Pfizer vaccine for the initial 2-dose series. For updates or more information see the CDC.

Prevea360 will cover FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine(s) (SARS CoV-2) with no member cost-sharing, consistent with the requirements set forth by the CARES Act.

The Department of Health Services (DHS) now offers a newsletter you can sign up for to get direct information about the COVID-19 response and vaccine rollout.

  • Testing for current infection: There will be no copayment, coinsurance, or deductible for medically necessary COVID-19 tests ordered by a provider during the Public Health Emergency.
    • Medically necessary testing includes tests for members with known or suspected symptoms or known or suspected exposure. Also includes tests for members entering a medical facility for services.
    • Diagnostic testing requested by a member or third party such as those for employment, school admission, entertainment or travel are not covered by Prevea360 Health Plan.
  • Testing for past infection: When a provider orders COVID-19 antibody testing, member cost-sharing is waived, meaning no copayment, coinsurance, or deductible.

 

What to do when you have symptoms of COVID-19

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers guidance on symptoms and when to contact your medical provider.

If you're experiencing symptoms, you can initiate a Prevea Virtual Care visit . A provider will help determine your next steps.. If testing is recommended, you will be directed to the nearest testing site.

If you are not experiencing symptoms but are concerned about a potential exposure, you should seek free testing through the nearest community testing site. Locations can be found through the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
