CORONAVIRUS: Your Medicare


Medicare is here to help during the COVID-19 emergency. Your health, safety, and welfare are their highest priority. Remember, if you don't need to go out, it is important to stay home to help slow the spread of COVID-19.


To help you get the health care you need, while reducing your risk of exposure, Medicare has further temporarily expanded its coverage of telehealth services - allowing doctors and clinicians to perform dozens more additional services via telehealth. As always, contact your provider first to see if your appointment can be conducted over the phone. If you develop emergency warning signs for COVID-19, get medical attention immediately.
