No-cost Test Kits through Health Insurance
People with a health insurance plan can also purchase at-home COVID-19 tests either no-cost at check-out or through insurance reimbursement. This applies to both privately purchased and employer-provided health plans.
Tests must authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be covered by insurance. Click here for a list of FDA-authorized tests.
In order to receive insurance reimbursement, individuals should save and submit receipts. Insurance companies are required to reimburse the cost of the test or up to $12 per test, whichever is less.
Health plans must cover eight at-home COVID-19 tests per month for each per person enrolled in the plan. Plans may not apply deductibles or cost-sharing.
