At-Home Test Kits

Qualified Health Plan and ConnectorCare members may now be reimbursed for COVID at-home testing kits starting January 15, 2022.

At-Home COVID Testing Kits

Starting January 15, 2022, BMC HealthNet Plan will cover COVID-19 home testing kits for Qualified Health Plan and ConnectorCare members. The tests must be for personal use and not for employment purposes.

This means that Qualified Health Plan and ConnectorCare members can buy at-home COVID-19 testing kits at a pharmacy or other retailer and get paid back. In order to be reimbursed, testing kits must be FDA approved and purchased on or after January 15, 2022. Examples of FDA approved tests include BinaxNow, QuickVue, and FlowFlex.

Qualified Health Plan and ConnectorCare members may be reimbursed for up to 8 at-home testing kits per month during the COVID Public Health Emergency. There are no cost sharing or prior authorization requirements. 

If your COVID-19 diagnostic or at-home test is ordered by a health care provider, there is generally no limit on the number of tests that are covered.

How do I get reimbursed for testing kits?

You may buy any FDA-approved, COVID-19 home testing kits at any pharmacy or retailer, or order them online. You must submit your receipt along with a completed Member Reimbursement Form to get paid back. Testing kits can not be reimbursed without a receipt.

The process for reimbursing COVID-19 home testing kits may change regularly. Please check back before buying testing kits to make sure you receive full reimbursement.
