CVS Health delivering on commitment to establish up to 1,000 COVID-19 test sites by end of May

Top of the article

First phase will see drive-thru sites open across five states this week; more than 900 additional sites will open over next two weeks

WOONSOCKET, R.I. — Building on the company’s comprehensive efforts to help slow the spread of the virus, on Friday, May 15 CVS Health (NYSE: CVS) will open more than 50 COVID-19 test sites at select CVS Pharmacy drive-thru locations across Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania. The opening of hundreds of additional test sites across the country will be announced over the next two weeks.

The new sites will utilize self-swab tests and mark the next phase of the company’s COVID-19 testing strategy, announced April 27 at the White House. CVS Health expects to have up to 1,000 locations across the country offering this service by the end of May, with the goal of processing up to 1.5 million tests per month subject to availability of supplies and lab capacity. The company currently operates large-scale rapid test sites in coordination with five states, which can process a total of nearly 30,000 tests per week.

"While the large-scale test sites we’ve been operating since early April have proven successful, this new approach allows us to utilize our presence in communities across the country and bring testing closer to home," said Larry J. Merlo, President and CEO, CVS Health. "Our frontline employees will continue to play a critical role in the testing process, with members of their communities directly benefitting from their dedication and selflessness.”

Self-swab tests will be available to individuals meeting Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria, in addition to age guidelines. Patients must register in advance at CVS.com beginning Friday, May 15 to schedule an appointment. Patients will be required to stay in their cars and directed to the pharmacy drive-thru window where they will be provided with a test kit and given instructions, and a CVS Pharmacy team member will observe the self-swab process to ensure it is done properly. Tests will be sent to an independent, third-party lab for processing and the results will be available in approximately three days.

Testing will not take place inside any retail locations, and CVS Pharmacy, HealthHUB and MinuteClinic will continue to serve customers and patients.

More information on steps CVS Health has taken to address the COVID-19 pandemic, including support for health care providers and clinicians facing financial and administrative strain, is available at the company's frequently updated COVID-19 resource center.

CVS Health extends cost-sharing waivers and announces new action to support Aetna members during the COVID-19 pandemic
Top of the article

Now covering out-of-pocket costs for primary care services for Medicare Advantage members

WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS Health (NYSE: CVS) today announced it is extending a range of cost-sharing waivers and benefits to help Aetna members access the care they need during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“We recognize the unique role we can play in addressing the pandemic and protecting people's health,” said Karen S. Lynch, Executive Vice President, CVS Health and President, Aetna Business Unit. “We remain committed to helping our members get the care they need without the added worry of wondering how they will pay for it. We’ll continue to invest in efforts that support our members’ physical and mental wellbeing, letting them know they are not alone during this crisis.”

For members of Aetna-insured Commercial, Medicare Advantage and applicable Medicaid plans, the company is extending all member cost-sharing and co-pay waivers for inpatient admissions for treatment of COVID-19 or health complications associated with COVID-19. Additionally, given the escalating mental health crisis resulting from or amplified by the pandemic, Aetna is extending all member cost-sharing waivers for in-network telemedicine visits for outpatient behavioral and mental health counseling services. These actions, which were scheduled to expire on June 1, 2020, have been extended through September 30, 2020. Aetna will continue working with self-funded plan sponsors to provide options. 

The company is also taking additional steps to eliminate out-of-pocket costs for primary care services for Medicare Advantage members. Effective from today through September 30, 2020, Aetna is waiving member out-of-pocket costs for all in-network primary care visits, whether done in-office and via telehealth, for any reason, and encourages members to continue seeking essential preventive and primary care during the pandemic.

In addition to supporting members’ access to needed care, Aetna continues to focus on protecting patient access to medication. It has extended the following actions, which were scheduled to expire on May 15, 2020, through September 30, 2020:

  • Waiving early refill limits on 30-day prescription maintenance medications for all members with pharmacy benefits administered through CVS Caremark.

  • Continuing to encourage all members of Commercial, Medicare and Medicaid plans to take advantage of plan benefits for 90-day maintenance medication prescriptions.

Aetna continues to work closely with customers to offer flexible plan designs, including dental, and solutions to help reduce the financial burden many are facing today.

These announcements build on CVS Health’s overall efforts to help members, customers, providers and communities navigate through this public health emergency. More information on steps CVS Health has taken to address the COVID-19 pandemic is available at the company's frequently updated COVID-19 resource center.

Top of the article

DALLAS — Aetna Better Health of Texas, a CVS Health company (NYSE: CVS), today announced the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) awarded the company a STAR Kids Medicaid managed care contract in the seven-county Dallas service area. With this new award, Aetna Better Health will now serve the state's STAR Kids beneficiaries across the entire Dallas Ft. Worth Metroplex. Aetna Better Health's entry into the Dallas service area complements its ongoing, successful STAR Kids operations in the neighboring six-county Tarrant (Ft. Worth) service area, where it has served STAR Kids beneficiaries since 2016. More broadly, Aetna Better Health of Texas has covered Medicaid beneficiaries in the state since 2006, beginning with the state's separate STAR and CHIP programs in the Bexar and Tarrant service areas, which comprise a total of 14 counties across the state.

"Through our longstanding relationships with the State of Texas, our provider partners and community-based organizations, Aetna Better Health has provided Medicaid beneficiaries in Texas with access to quality care for more than 14 years," said Cheryl Harding, CEO, Aetna Better Health of Texas.

STAR Kids is a Texas Medicaid managed care program that serves children and young adults (ages 20 and younger) who have disabilities. The program provides benefits such as prescription drugs, hospital care, primary and specialty care, preventive care, personal-care services, private-duty nursing, and durable medical equipment and supplies. Children and young adults who receive additional services through the Medically Dependent Children Program (MDCP) waiver receive those MDCP services through the STAR Kids program.

Aetna Better Health of Texas currently serves 85,000 members across the state through the STAR, CHIP, and STAR Kids Medicaid programs. The STAR Kids expansion into the Dallas service area will bring an additional 7,500 enrollees to Aetna Better Health of Texas.

CVS Health works with Piedmont Healthcare to help create hospital bed capacity in Georgia

Top of the article

Coram, the infusion care business of CVS Health, expands strategy to help transition eligible IV-therapy patients from hospitals to in-home nursing in Georgia during the pandemic

WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS Health (NYSE: CVS) is working with Piedmont Healthcare in Georgia to support their solutions for increasing hospital bed capacity. This expands a recently launched strategy of Coram, the company’s infusion care business, to help transition eligible IV-therapy patients to home-based nursing care in response to COVID-19. Specifically, Coram has enhanced its clinical monitoring, virtual support and oversight through telehealth to complement existing personalized in-home support, coordination and administration of medications and supplies. In states like Georgia, ensuring the ability of hospital and health systems to handle potential surges of COVID-19 patients has become a critical factor in assessing stay-at-home orders and reopening local economies.https://gov.georgia.gov/press-releases/2020-04-20/gov-kemp-updates-georgians-covid-19

“Coram can deliver a clinically appropriate in-home care setting, which can be the safest place for patients recovering from a range of illnesses during this time by helping to minimize their risk of contracting COVID-19,” said Sree Chaguturu, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of CVS Caremark and CVS Specialty. “Our Coram model allows us to deploy clinical teams where the need is greatest, and we are shifting resources to support Piedmont Healthcare as a critical part of their solution to build and maintain hospital bed capacity for treating the critically ill impacted by the virus.”

Coram is working with Piedmont Healthcare to identify and begin transitioning stable patients to home-based nursing care. Patients with a range of conditions that may require infusion therapy, including hydration and nutritional support, anti-infectives and/or specialty medications for chronic condition management, will be considered. Once home, Coram’s specialized nurses will provide and coordinate a range of care, including daily visits and monitoring, medication administration, IV catheter line care, lab draws and educational support via telehealth. Coram is scaling this approach nationwide in other markets with high rates of COVID-19 cases, and working with home health agencies to enable care for patients with high acuity needs that may require additional clinical oversight and monitoring.

“During these extraordinary and unprecedented times, we remain focused on serving Georgians’ health care needs and have implemented a number of strategies that enable continuity of care for our patients and communities,” Robert Miller, M.D., Medical Director of Wound Care and Hyperbarics, Chair of the Board Piedmont Atlanta Hospital. “Together, with companies like CVS Health, we can employ innovative solutions that create the additional care capacity we need to help Georgians get through this.”

More information on the steps that CVS Health is taking to address the COVID-19 pandemic is available at the company’s frequently updated COVID-19 resource center.

MinuteClinic expands options to help patients access routine care during COVID-19 pandemic

Top of the article

New MinuteClinic E-Clinic visit option enables patients to connect via video conferencing with a local provider

WOONSOCKET, R.I. — As the nation continues to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, CVS Health (NYSE: CVS) today announced that MinuteClinic, the company's retail medical clinic, is now offering expanded telehealth options to help patients access safe, affordable and convenient non-emergency care.

In addition to traditional in-clinic patient visits, patients are now able to select a virtual E-Clinic visit with a local MinuteClinic provider for a wide variety of routine health care needs. This new telehealth option is available in Washington, D.C. and the 33 states where MinuteClinic currently operates, and is contracted with most health insurance plans.

“We are in the midst of an unprecedented time in our country’s history, and we recognize that patients now need different ways to access care for their acute and chronic health care needs,” said Sharon Vitti, President of MinuteClinic. “Our new E-Clinic visits offer patients access to our qualified care providers for the care they need, in a format that enables them to follow important shelter-in-place and social distancing guidelines.”

MinuteClinic providers are available to evaluate, diagnose and treat common injuries, illnesses and skin conditions, and help manage chronic conditions, either in person or using E-Clinic. The new E-Clinic visit capability offers patients the opportunity to connect virtually with a local MinuteClinic provider via video conferencing on their personal mobile device or computer, between 9 AM and 5 PM local time. To connect with a MinuteClinic provider, patients can visit MinuteClinic.com and request an E-Clinic visit.

MinuteClinic providers continue to see patients in-clinic by appointment and are taking temporary, appropriate actions to help support efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. For instance, MinuteClinic is no longer accepting walk-in patients and all patients will be pre-screened outside of the clinic to determine if it is the right site of care for their symptoms. To make an in-clinic appointment, patients can visit MinuteClinic.com or use the CVS Pharmacy app.

CVS Health to significantly expand COVID-19 testing capabilities

CVS Health to significantly expand COVID-19 testing capabilities
Top of the article

Next phase will utilize company presence in communities across the country

WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS Health (NYSE: CVS) will join other pharmacy chains and retailers at the White House today to announce the next phase in COVID-19 testing. In addition to the large-scale test sites the company has been operating since March, CVS Health will utilize its expansive community presence to bring testing closer to home while maintaining strict safety standards.

"Our industry has been united by the unique role we can play in addressing the pandemic and protecting people's health," said Larry J. Merlo, President and CEO, CVS Health. "We all share the same goal, and that's dramatically increasing the frequency and efficiency of testing so we can slow the spread of the virus and start to responsibly reopen the economy when experts tell us it's safe."

Beginning in May, CVS Health will offer self-swab tests to individuals meeting Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria. Testing will be scheduled online and take place at select CVS Pharmacy locations in parking lots or at drive-thru windows; no testing will take place in-store. Employees participating in the test collection process will maintain safety using personal protective equipment and follow sanitization protocols after each test. The company expects to have up to 1,000 locations across the country offering this service by the end of May, with the goal of processing up to 1.5 million tests per month subject to availability of supplies and lab capacity.

CVS Health's COVID-19 testing strategy is driven by science, but also by the reality that minorities have been disproportionately impacted by the virus. The company has partnered with several organizations, including the National Medical Association, to improve access to testing and necessary care for historically underserved communities. CVS Health is also developing mobile solutions that will allow health care professionals to bring testing capabilities to these communities, and those same services can be utilized for businesses that will begin to re-open in the coming weeks and months.

CVS Health currently operates large-scale COVID-19 rapid test sites in five states, which were opened in a matter of weeks through partnerships with the Department of Health and Human Services and governors in Connecticut, Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan and Rhode Island. Most of the parking lot sites can accommodate up to 1,000 tests per day, and sites are overseen by licensed health care providers from MinuteClinic, the retail medical clinic inside CVS Pharmacy locations, with assistance from CVS pharmacists and other employees.

"The selflessness displayed every day by the health care professionals at CVS Health and around the world is inspiring beyond words, and we owe them a debt of gratitude," Merlo continued. "The same is true for frontline workers everywhere who continue to provide essential goods and services when we need them most."

More information on steps CVS Health has taken to address the COVID-19 pandemic, including support for health care providers and clinicians facing financial and administrative strain, is available at the company's frequently updated COVID-19 resource center.
