Over-the counter (OTC) at-home COVID-19 test kits

You have three options for coverage of OTC at-home COVID-19 test kits:

  1. Pay $0 at a preferred network pharmacy: Visit a Walmart, Sam’s Club or Rite Aid pharmacy and simply go to the pharmacy counter, present your member ID card, and ask to have your OTC at-home COVID-19 test kits submitted to your plan for coverage.
  2. Purchase a kit and then submit an electronic form for reimbursement: You can also purchase an OTC at-home COVID-19 test kit at other stores or online retailers. Keep your purchase receipt(s) to submit for reimbursement. To receive the quickest possible reimbursement of up to $12 per test, submit an electronic claim form by visiting Optum.
  3. Purchase a kit and then print and mail in a paper reimbursement form: If you prefer to submit your claim by mail, you can print a form at Optum and then mail it in. Reimbursement applies up to $12 per test. Please note: you will receive reimbursement more quickly if you submit an electronic claim.

Which COVID-19 tests are covered?

Coverage includes OTC at-home COVID-19 test kits authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The most common tests are BinaxNOW™, Flowflex™, InteliSwab™, On/Go™ and QuickVue®.

Is there a limit to how many tests will be covered?

Yes. Covered members can get up to 8 individual tests per month, e.g., a family of 4 would be eligible for 32 tests a month.
