In our ongoing commitment to you and your members during the COVID‑19 pandemic, Independence Blue Cross will extend many of the COVID‑19 provisions we put in place in accordance with the public health emergency. The public health emergency previously scheduled to end on April 21, 2021 has been extended through July 20, 2021. We will also continue waiving prior authorizations for COVID‑19 inpatient admissions now through May 31, 2021. Please refer to the updated benefits grid linked below for more details.
