COVID-19 state health insurance plan changes
As part of the state's comprehensive response to COVID-19, the State Employee Health Plan has made a change to the coverage of benefits related to COVID-19.
Effective May 29, the plan's medical benefits began covering COVID-related services according to the regular provisions of the member's selected medical coverage. COVID-related services will be subject to all copays, deductibles and coinsurance provisions when received from network and non-network providers.
The State Employee Health Plan will continue to cover the following related to COVID-19:
- COVID-19 tests are available at no cost through the public health response effort. View statewide locations for testing.
- COVID-19 vaccinations will continue to be covered at 100% as a preventive care service. Visit the CDC's Vaccine Finder for locations near you.
Vaccination against COVID-19 is an effective way for individuals to support their own health and the health and wellness of the K-State community and our host communities. Individuals are considered fully vaccinated two weeks past the final dose of a two-dose vaccine or one dose of a single-dose vaccine. See Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance for more information.
Lafene Health Center continues to offer COVID-19 vaccination opportunities for K-State students, faculty and staff members. Appointments are required and can be made on the myLafene+ patient portal or by calling Lafene Health Center at 785-532-6544.
