COVID-19 At-Home Tests
On January 10, 2022, the Departments of Labor, Treasury and Health and Human Services released guidance to support the Administration’s directive that health insurers and group health plans cover, subject to certain criteria, the cost of FDA-authorized or approved over-the-counter (OTC) COVID-19 at home tests beginning on January 15, 2022.
On January 15, 2022, UnitedHealthcare began covering most commercial individual and group health plan members’ FDA-authorized or approved OTC COVID-19 at home tests without a doctor’s prescription or clinical assessment. This COVID-19 at home test benefit includes up to 8 tests per member per 30 days for diagnostic purposes.
The Biden Administration also launched a website to order free COVID tests which can be sent directly to your home. Every home in the U.S. is eligible to order four free at-home COVID-19 tests. Visit https://www.covidtests.gov/ to learn more and to order yours today.
Best wishes and stay safe.
