        The University of Pennsylvania health system has an excellent website entitled “Answers to Your Frequently Asked Questions about COVID-19” at .

        It is short, simple, and to the point.

        All the best and keep your distance.

        Corona-Covid19 tests are coming in

        After all.. Just because we're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get us.

        For those in the USA that are already on Medicare, but might not have received a recent email on this:

        Medicare has temporarily expanded its coverage of telehealth services to respond to COVID-19.

        “Teleheath” means here consultations via the Internet or by telephone, as many doctors no longer receive patients that have symptoms that could be caused by infection with the COVID-19 virus, because they do not have the equipment necessary to protect themselves, their secretaries and other staff, or to disinfect their premises after treating such patients, so these can only be examined and, if necessary, isolated and treated properly at hospitals equipped to this end.

        Medicare beneficiaries can temporarily use telehealth services for common office visits, mental health counseling and preventive health screenings. This will help ensure Medicare beneficiaries are able to visit with their doctor from their home, without having to go to a doctor’s office or hospital, which puts themselves and others at risk.

        If you have an existing healthcare appointment, or think you need to see your doctor, please call them first to see if your appointment can be conducted over a smartphone with video capability or any device using video technology, like a tablet or a laptop. For some appointments, a simple check-in over the phone without video capabilities may suffice.

        Important: If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms, such as a cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider immediately.

        Remember: Medicare covers the lab tests for COVID-19. You pay no out-of-pocket costs.

        For the latest information on the coronavirus, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
