Humana outlines two options to obtain no-cost OTC COVID-19 tests

Authored by Bukaty Companies on January 18, 2022

Humana has identified two options for members to purchase over-the-counter (OTC), FDA-approved COVID-19 diagnostic kits to comply with the Department of Labor’s (DOL’s) directive released last week. The DOL requirement took effect January 15.

Option 1: Pay out of pocket and complete a Humana-provided reimbursement form and provide a copy of a receipt showing the test purchase date, cost and include a copy of the package UPC.

Option 2: Have no out-of-pocket upfront cost by presenting your Humana ID card at a Humana network pharmacy counter. The pharmacy will be reimbursed by Humana. If a pharmacy is not prepared to process the transaction as an insurance claim, upfront costs will apply, but can be reimbursed using Option 1.

Regardless of payment option, members can receive up to eight test kits per month per member.

More information is available in Humana’s employer FAQ.
