At home tests via insurance
The government mandate to provide 8 at home Covid-19 tests to each person per 30 days went into effect 1/15/2022
Insurances are scrambling to setup networks and add available tests into the system so they can be processed via pharmacy systems/networks. This process can take 7-14days or longer for some insurances.
Medicare coverage for these tests has not been defined yet nor have we received any communication as of 1/15/22.
1. Buy online or in store and submit the receipts to insurance along with HCFA 1500 form or any other form provided by your insurance company. You will need our Tax ID and NPI number listed on the store receipt or on packing slip when you purchase online. You may also need diagnosis code and HCPCS codes.

2. Submit your request online for us to try your billing your insurance. This is a first come first serve basis while we have the tests in stock. Typical response time is 5-7days depending on staffing levels. Any inquiries will delay response even further by another 5-7days. You are free to try other pharmacies. Your insurance will let us know if it was filled elsewhere. We cancel orders automatically 48hrs after calling you.
With short staffing, we are unable to help fulfill these orders as well as process prescriptions. We request you also seek the help of local health department for free at home test kits.
