As a community health plan, we’re working to limit the spread of this virus and promote access to testing, vaccination and medically necessary treatment.
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.
We 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.
WellFirst Health is currently taking the following steps to protect the health of our members:
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 an e-visit. A provider will help you find the right level of care. 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.
WellFirst Health is currently expanding its coverage of telehealth services. This allows additional methods of health care access for members such as Skype, FaceTime or Zoom.
These services are available to our Individual & Family Marketplace, Direct, and SSM Health Employee ASO members.
We encourage using an SSM Health e-visit and our Nurse advice line to limit the potential spread of the virus to those in waiting rooms as well as medical staff.
