Notice to Members
March 30, 2020, 4:15 p.m.
There has been a flurry of communications sent today, so we are keeping this notice short.
Here is our latest update:
- Greenshield will now cover Telehealth services. Thanks to the work of the CCA, Greenshield will join SunLife and Manulife in covering Telehealth consultations. This coverage is effective starting today, March 30, 2020.
- Discussions are ongoing with Alberta Blue Cross. As other Blue Cross divisions have approved coverage for Telehealth services, we anticipate Alberta Blue Cross will as well. However, discussions are currently ongoing. Please do not submit claims until formal notice has been given stating that they will cover Telehealth services.
- Ensure your advertising and communications are compliant. On March 17, 2020, the ACAC issued a directive regarding communications related to the coronavirus. Scrutiny is high surrounding all claims related to coronavirus, immunity and infections, as evidenced by this CBC article. Please ensure all of your advertising and communications are compliant with the directive, especially if you use a third-party content provider.
- Please look for and read ACAC COVID-19 updates every day. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again–we remain in a rapidly changing environment and its direction can change quickly. We are working diligently to provide you with information in a clear and timely manner, and you can expect a daily update Monday–Friday for the next while. You can also access all communications surrounding COVID-19 on the ACAC website.
