March 12 Update from UnitedHealthcare

The Coronavirus Disease 2019 – COVID-19 – originated late last year in central China. It was officially reported by the World Health Organization on January 9. The virus, which has symptoms similar to a respiratory illness including fever, cough, and shortness of breath – and in some cases can cause death – is being closely monitored by World Health officials.

Here’s the  message from UnitedHealthcare to all members:

Following CDC Guidance

The health and wellbeing of our members is a top priority. In addition, the safety of those who deliver care – physicians, clinicians and nurses – is also a key concern. As with any public health issue, UnitedHealthcare will work with and follow all guidance and protocols issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state and local public health departments in supporting our members’ needs.

At present, there is no specific treatment or vaccine for COVID-19 and diagnostic testing for the virus is currently conducted only at CDC labs. Supportive care for affected individuals may include hydration, supplemental oxygen or mechanical ventilation for severe illness. Diagnostic testing and supportive care are covered per the member’s health plan benefits.
