HEALTH

COVID-19 Testing and Treatment*

The Medical Plan covers COVID-19 testing – viral and antibody – and treatment at 100%. Learn More

No-Fee 24/7 Telemedicine*

We’ve waived the telemedicine fee so you can see doctors from the safety and convenience of your home. You must book appointments on mycigna.com or myuhc.com sites or apps. Learn More

Free Flu Shots and Other Preventive Care*

It’s not too late to get a free flu shot. And even though we continue to social distance, it’s important that we stay on top of our preventive care and screenings, which the Medical Plan covers at 100% when you use in-network providers.

*Only employees and their dependents enrolled in the Firm’s Medical Plan are eligible for COVID-19 testing and treatment, no-fee telemedicine, preventive care and health coaching.

Note: Member cost share for COVID-19 diagnostic testing, treatment and certain telemedicine visits will be waived through the emergency period established by the US government (set to expire on April 20). The Firm continues to evaluate coverage as the pandemic and vaccine distribution evolve and reserves the right to change coverage, including reinstating deductibles and coinsurance payments, at any time.

WELLNESS

Mental Health Benefit

Our daily routines continue to be taxing as we worry about our health and struggle with life’s stresses. If you’re feeling anxious or depressed; not sleeping; having relationship or family issues; feeling lonely, hopeless or angry; or struggling with alcohol or substance abuse, the Firm’s mental health benefit through Lyra can help.

You and your family may each meet with an experienced therapist or mental health coach up to 16 times per year — confidentially and at no cost. Lyra offers individual, couples and family counseling, as well as online self-care tools. Learn More
