Kaiser Permanente recently provided information on how members can get reimbursed for rapid antigen home tests.
While home self-tests are still in very short supply throughout the world, everyone can now order up to 4 free rapid tests from the federal government at covidtests.gov. Kaiser Permanente members can also purchase FDA approved rapid antigen home tests at their local drugstore or online and get reimbursed. To get reimbursed for self-tests purchased on or after January 15, 2022, members should go to "Coverage & Costs" on kp.org, sign in to their account, and select "Submit a medical claim."
The claim must include:
- An itemized purchase receipt with test name, date of purchase, price, and number of tests.
- A photo of the QR or UPC bar code cut out of the rapid antigen home test box.
