Benefits Spotlight

Effective Jan. 15, 2022, federal regulatory guidance requires that health plans must cover the cost of over-the-counter COVID-19 tests, including tests obtained without a healthcare provider’s order or authorization. Employees may use either their health insurance carrier or Optum Rx for test reimbursement but not both. The reimbursements from the insurance carriers do not include the federal government test kits.
