During the Public Health Emergency (PHE), over-the-counter COVID-19 test kits are covered by Blue Cross and Blue Shield with no member cost share (limited to 8 test kits per covered member each month). Members who purchase a test kit should file a claim to be reimbursed.


Claims can be filed electronically by logging in to your online account and selecting "Submit a Claim" under Self Service.

Every home in the U.S. can soon order 4 free at-⁠home COVID-⁠19 tests. The tests will be completely free—there are no shipping costs and you don’t need to enter a credit card number. Ordering begins January 19. Visit covidtests.gov for more information.
