EHP now covers over-the-counter COVID-19 test costs.
Employee Health Plan (EHP) now covers over-the-counter COVID-19 test costs either at the point-of-sale with no up-front cost to the member, or through reimbursement after the purchase is made. This applies to over-the counter (OTC) COVID-19 tests that are FDA Approved under Emergency Use Authorization, and that are purchased on or after Jan 15, 2022.
Reimbursement is permitted for up to eight tests per covered individual over a 30-day period (or per month) (i.e., if each kit contains two tests, then the individual can be reimbursed for no more than four kits in a given month). This is in accordance with the federal guidance regarding at home diagnostic tests or over-the-counter COVID-19 testing.
