WellFirst Health is working to protect the health and safety of our members.
We understand you still need access to important health care during the pandemic. At SSM Health, our top priority is the health and safety of our patients, caregivers and communities. If you need to visit one of our physician offices, urgent care clinics or emergency rooms, rest assured we have extensive precautions in place. Learn more from SSM Health.
WellFirst Health is currently taking the following steps to protect the health of our members:
As a community health plan, we’re working to limit the spread of this virus and promote access to screening, testing and medically necessary treatment.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers guidance on symptoms and when to contact your medical provider.
WellFirst Health is currently expanding its coverage of telehealth services. This allows additional methods of health care access for members such as Skype, FaceTime or Zoom.
These services applies to our Individual & Family Marketplace, Direct, and SSM Health Employee ASO members.
We encourage using an SSM Health Virtual Visit and our Nurse advice line to limit the potential spread of the virus to those in waiting rooms as well as medical staff.
