Insurance Coverage for Additional At-Home Tests

If you purchase at-home tests in a pharmacy, insurance companies and group health plans are now required to cover the cost of those over-the-counter, at-home COVID-19 tests. This means that most people with health coverage can buy a home test kit in a pharmacy or store and be reimbursed for the cost.

Check with your health insurance provider for details. For example, Health New England covers up to 8 at-home tests per month.
