Palliative Care takes an inter¬disciplinary approach to assist patients in every aspect of their lives, thereby improving their quality of life and aiding in their recovery.

COVID Test Kit Reimbursement
February 09, 2022
Beginning Saturday, January 15, 2022 the PWGA Health Plan will cover the cost of up to eight COVID home-test kits a month under a new Federal program. Express Scripts has made arrangements with CVS, Walgreens, and independent drug stores, so you just have to show your insurance ID card anywhere it is currently accepted in order to get the tests. If there is a problem (it’s a new program and ESI is still working out the bugs), you may have to pay out of pocket. If this happens, the Plan will reimburse Participants up to a maximum of $12 per test.
