WASHINGTON, D.C. — If you are worried about home testing right now for the coronavirus, your health plan must over the cost of at-home COVID-19 tests starting Saturday.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced people don't need to visit their doctor first or get a prescription to get those free tests.
Insurance companies must pay for up to eight tests per covered individual per month.
And there will be no limit if a doctor orders or conducts a test after an office visit.
Home tests bought before Saturday don't qualify for reimbursement.
