Florida Blue provided this information to our offices this afternoon:

Florida Blue is actively engaged in the COVID19 fight and is committed to supporting its members and their communities as this difficult situation evolves. To further support our members, the company is waiving member cost-sharing for all COVID19 treatment services – including inpatient hospital admissions – for its fully insured commercial insurance plans, including Affordable Care Act (Marketplace), individual and Employer Group coverage, and for its Medicare Advantage health plans.

To help hospitals accelerate appropriate discharges and support bed capacity, Florida Blue is also waiving prior authorization requirements for patients being transferred from inpatient acute hospital settings to post-acute care facilities (Long Term Acute Care Facilities, Skilled Nursing Facilities and Inpatient Rehabilitation).
