There are a few Covid updates as we move into Spring and Summer 2023.
- The Covid-19 pandemic State of Emergency is being lifted on May 12 th . With that change
families whose children receive health insurance through Child Health Plus, or any
“Option” plan will have to establish eligibility and re-enroll in your health insurance
- During the state of emergency, the cost of any covid related care was covered and did
not require a copay. After May 12 th , the cost of any PCR or antigen testing will now be
submitted to your insurance or if you have a high deductible plan and have not met your
deductible you will be responsible for the cost.
- The FDA and CDC simplified the Covid-19 vaccine schedule. Only the bivalent Covid
vaccines will be administered for all doses of the vaccine. The bivalent vaccines cover
both the original and the Omicron strains of Covid-19. Any future Covid booster
recommendations are not yet known.
- We continue to require anyone over 2 years old to wear a mask in the office. There is a
lot of illness in the community, and we don’t want anyone getting sick because of a visit
to the office. Thank you for your cooperation with this.
