New federal guidance has indicated that commercial plans will need to provide ACTIVE MEMBERS enrolled in CDPHP ONLY with adequate retail and mail order access to $0 COVID 19-OTC tests. Each covered member can receive up to 8 individual tests every month, up to a $12 reimbursement per test. The Optum Store solution provides a mail order access option for plan members.
For clients opted into our standard approach for test COVID-19 test kits online at Optum Store starting on 2/2/2022. Members will be required to sign in through optumrx.com.
The Optum Store provides another option for members to obtain test kits with a $0 member cost-share (8 tests or 4 kit limit per household per calendar month) without having to leave their home, and without the hassle of submitting receipts for reimbursement.
