Insurance Reimbursement

As of January 15, 2022, most people with a health plan can purchase a free at-home over-the-counter COVID-19 diagnostic test authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This applies whether you purchased your health plan on your own or whether you get health insurance through your job.

Insurance companies and health plans are required to cover eight free over-the-counter at-home tests per covered individual per month. However, plans are not required to provide coverage of testing (including an at-home over-the-counter COVID-19 test) for employment purposes.

Depending on your insurance, you will either get the test free at the point of sale, or you will be reimbursed for the cost of the test by filing a claim. Contact your insurer to find out if your health plan provides direct coverage of over-the-counter COVID-19 tests through such a program, or if you will need to submit a claim for reimbursement.

If you are charged for your test after January 15, keep your receipt and submit a claim to your insurance company for reimbursement.
