UHC Provides COVID-19 Home Test FAQs

On Jan. 10, 2022, the Departments of Labor, Treasury and Health and Human Services released guidance to support the Administration’s directive that health insurers and group health plans cover the cost of FDA-authorized or approved over-the-counter (OTC) at-home COVID-19 tests purchased on or after Jan. 15, 2022.


Beginning Jan. 15, 2022, UnitedHealthcare will cover most commercial individual and group plan members’ FDA authorized and approved OTC at-home COVID-19 diagnostic tests purchased on or after this date, without a doctor’s prescription or clinical assessment. This at-home COVID-19 test coverage will include up to 8 tests per member per 30 days.
