Now that the COVID-19 vaccine has been approved, we plan to continue updating Optima Health members about how and when they can receive one.
It’s a New Year—that means new goals and new opportunities!
From all of us to all of you, we wish you a happy and healthy holiday season!
As you may be aware, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a COVID-19 vaccine for individuals 16 years of age and older from Pfizer Inc./BioNTech and plans to approve a vaccine from Moderna for individuals 18 years of age and older soon.
Optima Health understands that this year’s holiday season will be different due to the pandemic. COVID-19 has put a strain on families and forced us to practice social distancing with loved ones. While the safest way to celebrate is only with those in your household, we understand that many will continue with their normal holiday plans of visiting family and friends.
We want to remind you about the Open Enrollment resources available to better serve you and your employer groups.
Attention Brokers — As a courtesy to our self-funded groups we would like to remind you that beginning January 1, 2021 many Virginians covered under health insurance plans will have protection from "surprise billing" or balance billing.
Open Enrollment for 2021 starts November 1, and we want to make you aware of a few important updates to our Individual & Family Plans as you begin selling and renewing OptimaFit® plans for 2021. All updates take effect January 1, 2021 unless otherwise noted.
