Over-the-Counter (OTC) tests
Three Rivers Diagnostics (a DBA of QualiTox Laboratories, LLC) is providing Covid-19 test kits as part of the Medicare COVID-19 Over the Counter tests initiative. Medicare Part B will cover the cost of up to 8 COVID-19 at-home tests per month for each person including shipping. No deductible or co-pay for patients.
Medicare now covers up to 8 over-the-counter COVID-19 tests each calendar month, at no cost to you.
This coverage continues until the COVID-19 public health emergency ends.
If you’re in a Medicare Advantage Plan, you won’t get this benefit through your plan, but will get it like you would if you weren’t enrolled in the plan.
Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) will cover these tests if you have Part B. (Medicare won’t cover over-the-counter COVID-19 tests if you only have Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) coverage, but you may be able to get free tests through other programs or insurance coverage you may have.)
You might need to show your red, white, and blue Medicare card to get your free over-the-counter COVID-19 tests (even if you have another card for a Medicare Advantage Plan or Medicare Part D plan).
