    APWU Health Plan COVID-19 Coverage Enhancements - Jun. 2, 2020

    By WVPWU,

    APWU Health Plan COVID-19 Coverage Enhancements


    As we work together to slow down the spread of COVID 19, our lives continue to evolve and change in ways we could have never expected. The APWU Health Plan will continue to evaluate coverage enhancements as a result of COVID-19. Because the spread of the virus has slowed down considerably, we are removing the inpatient prior authorization wavier. Initially, the Health Plan wanted to remove this administrative burden as hospitals were overwhelmed. As we get back to the new “normal,” authorizations should be obtained.
