Medicare is now covering the cost of at-home Covid tests for beneficiaries 

Good news — Medicare beneficiaries can now get at-home Covid tests at no costs, as announced by the U.S. Government this past Monday.

Those with Medicare Part B (outpatient care coverage) — including Advantage Plan enrollees — will be able to get up to eight over-the-counter tests per month for free from participating pharmacies and health care providers, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

This initiative comes after Medicare was not included in a January mandate from the Bident administration that private insurers must cover the cost of at-home tests (also up to eight per month). This marks the first time Medicare has covered an over-the-counter, self-administered test at no cost to beneficiaries. 

A list of eligible pharmacies and other health-care providers that are participating in this initiative can be found here. Questions about what your Medicare plan covers? We can help! We can check with your pharmacy or doctor to find out if they are participating if you don’t see them on the list.  Give us a call today — we can not only give you free quotes, but we can analyze your current plan, see what type of subsidies you may qualify for, and send you options for lower rates but great coverage in the same day! We’re the number one health insurance agency in Coral Springs and Parkland!
