As the COVID-19 pandemic continues into 2021, TAC Health and Employee Benefits Pool (TAC HEBP) has extended coverage for Pool members.

The federal government has extended the public health emergency for COVID-19 to April 21. In response, TAC HEBP alerted members that as long as the public health emergency is in effect, there would be no member cost-sharing fees such as copays, deductibles or coinsurance required for COVID-19 testing and testing-related services. TAC HEBP also has suspended copays for the telemedicine program MDLIVE.
