Responding to Coronavirus
As we continue to monitor the situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19), we encourage our members to take steps to help protect their health and well-being. The Compass Rose Health Plan will cover the costs of diagnostic testing for COVID-19, ensuring no cost to members.
Although there are currently no vaccines available to protect against human coronavirus infection, you may be able to reduce your risk of infection by following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) prevention guidelines.
Given the nature of the COVID-19 epidemic, seeking in-person medical care may lead to further spreading of the virus. Telehealth services can help avoid exposure and reduce the risk of being exposed to germs in the waiting room. Compass Rose Health Plan members have access to free telehealth services provided by Doctor On Demand and through their in-network primary care provider if offered.
Based on CDC guidelines, Doctor On Demand has launched a two-minute assessment to help patients determine what precautions they should take in the event Coronavirus (COVID-19) impacts their community. The assessment also provides personalized prevention recommendations.
