Telemedicine is Covered
Updates to COVID-19 related benefits are on the Altria Benefits website called AltriaTotalRewards.com. Retirees can sign on using the generic id of AltriaSal (Salaried) or AltriaHrly (Hourly). Look for the gray section with Altria COVID-19 Resources. Click here Summary of Benefits and Resources Related to COVID-19 to view a Summary document with links to resources and enhanced coverage for COVID-19 related health and emotional (EAP) concerns. AltriaTotalRewards and the Summary document are updated regularly by the Altria Benefits Department, so check periodically for updates.
All costs related to COVID-19 testing or treatment will be covered at 100% for those with Cigna coverage. Remind your provider to use COVID-19 billing codes.
Telemedicine / Virtual Care can be used with either the Cigna in-network telemedicine services of MDLive and AmWell, or with telemedicine/virtual care offered by your own doctors.
Pharmacy update: Cigna is extending active prior authorization for both regular and specialty medications that are set to expire between April 1st and July 31st, 2020. That means that you do not have to go back to the doctor to re-authorize prescriptions if the authorization expired during this time period.
