Important update to coverage for at-home COVID-19 tests

Starting May 12, 2023, the two national emergencies addressing COVID-19 end. On that date, at-home, over-the-counter (OTC) COVID-19 tests (with or without a prescription) will no longer be covered under most plans’ coverage. Check with your plan for further details. Any test kits purchased on or before May 11, 2023, can still be submitted for reimbursement.


Does health insurance cover COVID-19 testing?

Health insurance does not cover COVID-19 tests

Health insurance is accepted for tests with provider visits at walk-in clinic locations. If you plan to use health insurance for your visit, you must bring your insurance card to your test. You may have out-of-pocket costs as determined by your health plan.


What is the cost of a COVID-19 test without insurance?

The fee for the test varies depending on where you go.  Any additional cost due to lab delays or other unforeseen circumstances are the sole responsibility of the patient or guarantor.
