Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana (BCBSMT) is waiving member cost-sharing, including deductibles, copayments and coinsurance related to treatment for COVID-19. The waiver applies to costs associated with COVID-19 treatment at in-network facilities and treatment for out-of-network emergencies.
Which members are Included?
The new policy applies to all fully insured group plan, individual and family plan, Medicare (excluding Part D plans), and Healthy Montana Kids (HMK), and Medicare Supplement members. Many of our members are covered under a health plan that is self-insured by their employer. Some of these members may be responsible for copay or deductibles, based on their employer’s election to participate in this benefit.
How Long will cost sharing be waived?
The policy is effective for treatment received April 1, 2020, through June 30, 2020 (previously May 31, 2020). We will reassess this policy as circumstances warrant.
