CSEBO COVID Statement
As the situation around COVID-19 continues to evolve, we’re here to help you. CSEBO has been waiving all member out-of-pocket costs related to in-network COVID-19 treatment since April 1 for all plans and carriers. We’re now extending this policy through the end of the year and will continue to waive the member out-of-pocket costs for treatment delivered by providers of your respective carrier.
We’re waiving these costs because we know that many more people will need treatment for COVID-19 in the months ahead — and because it’s the right thing to do. It’s more important than ever that we don’t allow the cost of care to prevent our members from getting the treatment they need. They should be focusing on getting well — not worrying about how to pay for their care.
Please continue taking steps to help protect yourself and slow the spread of the coronavirus. Together, we can work to keep our communities healthy and strong.
We’re here for you. For more information, visit:
