PRIVATE INSURERS REQUIRED TO COVER HOME COVID TESTS
The Biden administration announced Monday (January 10th) that private health insurers will be required to cover home Covid-19 tests starting on Saturday.
Insurers will have to cover up to eight tests per month per person for people on their plans. Under the new policy, people will be able to either buy home tests for free under their insurance, or submit receipts for the tests for reimbursement.
Americans on Medicare won’t be able to get tests reimbursed through the program, but Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program plans are required to cover them.
