Health COVID 19 Updates



If you are working in a different state or country than your designated work location in Workday, your health plans, insurance and other benefits may not apply. It is very important that you notify HR as soon as possible if you have been working in a different state or country than what is reflected in Workday (open a ServiceNow ticket).

For U.S. employees working in a different state than designated in Workday:
You may be eligible to change your health plan within 31 days of moving to a different state, but only if your current health plan does not offer coverage in the state you are currently residing.

For U.S. employees working outside of the country:
Your primary address in Workday must remain your permanent home address in the U.S. If you change your address in Workday to a non-U.S. address, you will be dropped from Marvell’s benefit plans.

Medical Coverage:

  • All Marvell medical plans cover urgent/emergency services while abroad, but non-urgent/emergency services will not be covered, including routine annual exams, non-urgent lab services, immunizations, etc.
  • The Anthem Preferred, Anthem HDHP, and MVP Plan provide limited out-of-network coverage for non-urgent/emergency services abroad (under most circumstances).
  • For more information about medical coverage outside of the U.S., please visit the Travel page at

Dental/Vision Coverage:

  • Both Delta Dental Base and Buy-Up and VSP Base and Buy-Up Plans have limited out-of-network coverage.

Life/AD&D Insurance:

  • A Life or AD&D claim may be denied if you are residing outside the U.S. Please open a ServiceNow ticket under the Benefits category for additional information.

Please open a ServiceNow ticket under the Benefits category with any questions relating to benefits coverage outside the U.S.


 Permanent changes to the list of qualified medical expenses due to the CARE Act:

  • Over the Counter (OTC) medicine may be paid for on a tax-free basis by an HSA or Health Care FSA Plan. This change eliminated the provision that required a prescription for OTC medication (except insulin) to be covered on a tax-free basis. Examples of OTC medication are cold medications, antihistamines, antacids, anti-inflammatories, and other health-related items. 
  • Menstrual care products are now considered qualifying medical expenses that can be paid for on a tax-free basis by an HSA or Health Care FSA. Menstrual care products include tampons, pads, liners, cups, sponges, and similar products used by individual with respect to menstruation.

If you use a Navia Benefits Card, please note that most retail and online stores need to modify their inventory systems to mark OTC items as eligible expenses under the new laws before your card will be accepted for these items.  It may take 6-8 weeks before most stores and online providers make the necessary changes, and your transaction may be declined during checkout if you attempt to make OTC purchases with your Navia card during this time.  You can still purchase these items using an alternative form of payment and submit the expenses for reimbursement until the retail systems are updated.
