Get the Care You Need During Emergencies

Your MVP Medicare Advantage plan can help during a declared state of disaster or emergency, such as severe weather conditions, medical pandemics, or great security concerns. Examples of officials who can declare a state of disaster or emergency include: 

  • The governor of your state 
  • The U.S. secretary of Health & Human Services 
  • The president of the United States 

However, there are certain special conditions involved during a disaster or emergency.


How Your Coverage Works During Disasters

Generally, you can get care from out-of-network providers at in-network costs during a disaster. You may also be able to fill prescriptions at out-of-network pharmacies if you can’t use an in-network pharmacy during the disaster. 

If you must use an out-of-network pharmacy, you’ll generally have to pay the full cost at the time you fill the prescription, rather than your normal share of the cost. You can ask us to reimburse you for our share of the cost.
