At-Home COVID-19 Over-the-Counter Tests

Every home in the U.S is able to obtain free at-home COVID-19 tests through the U.S. government at COVIDtests.gov.

Individuals & Families/Health Plans Through Work Members

At-home COVID-19 over-the-counter tests are now covered at no charge for eligible AvMed Members at no charge when purchased at an AvMed in-network pharmacy. In network pharmacies include but are not limited to CVS, Sam’s Club, Walmart and Publix.

If purchased at a retail location outside of AvMed’s preferred pharmacy network, eligible Members may submit their receipt(s) for the reimbursement of the paid retail price (up to $12 per test) in one of the following ways:

  1. For the fastest reimbursement service, Members may submit their prescription claims electronically by logging in to their AvMed Member portal account and clicking on the 'Pharmacy Benefits' link. Once on the page, click on 'CVS/Pharmacy' to be redirected to the CVS portal, then go to 'Plans & Benefits' and select 'Submit Prescription Claims' from the dropdown menu. Follow the prompts to submit your at-home COVID-19 test reimbursement claim.
  2. Alternately, eligible Members may print and mail the Caremark form. Simply follow all instructions listed on the form to submit the store claim. 

Medicare Members

Beneficiaries with Medicare Part B, including AvMed Medicare Advantage Members, are now eligible to receive up eight free over-the-counter COVID-19 tests per calendar month. To receive tests at pharmacies or providers participating in this program with Medicare, you must present your original Medicare card (red, white and blue card), not your AvMed Medicare ID card.

A list of pharmacies that have committed publicly to participate and where you can access the tests directly is available here. Learn More.
