State Employee Health Plan (SEHP) benefits related to COVID-19 Extended through February 28, 2021

Jan 21, 2021, 10:10 AM by Courtney Fitzgerald
  • The State Employee Health Plan (SEHP) will cover medically necessary diagnostic tests that are consistent with CDC guidance related to COVID-19 at no cost share to the member, where it is not covered as part of the Public Health Service response.
  •  The SEHP will allow early refills on 30 or 90-day prescription medications and/or allow members to use their mail-order benefit.

  • Given the nature of the COVID-19 outbreak, seeking in-person medical care has the potential to further spread the virus. The SEHP partners with Aetna and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas to provide Telehealth services with a virtual doctor’s office. There is 24/7/365 access to this service. The member cost share will be waived for any Telehealth service. 
  • The HealthQuest Health Center which is operated by Marathon Health provides various services related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including COVID testing and telehealth appointments and is located at 901 S. Kansas Ave., Topeka, KS.
