Farm Bureau Health Plans is working to respond to the Biden administration’s mandate for COVID-19 at-home tests. We will soon have a claims form posted online to submit claims for reimbursement for an over-the-counter COVID-19 diagnostic test authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). These at-home tests will be covered if you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been directly exposed to someone with COVID-19.
Currently, we do not have a direct network of locations, such as pharmacies or retailers, where you can acquire the test for no up-front costs.
These COVID-19 tests are separate from the 500 million at-home tests promised to be distributed free of charge by the Biden administration. Once these test kits are available, you will be able to order one for free home delivery from a government website.
This mandate does not apply to Medicare beneficiaries and we suggest you click here for the most current information.
