Order your tests online at cvs.com or the CVS Pharmacy mobile app for store pickup1 and you’ll pay no out-of-pocket cost. You’ll need to create a CVS account if you don’t already have one. Click on At-home COVID-19 tests, then select Request At-home tests. Answer “No” to the Medicare/Medicaid question (Medicare does not currently cover OTC COVID-19 tests), enter your ZIP Code, and select a pharmacy. Then, enter all requested information from your health insurance card including your member ID, RxIIN (BIN) and RxPCN to place your online order.
You can go to any other in-network retail pharmacy and purchase the test kits at the pharmacy counter2. Provide your member ID card to the pharmacist and you’ll pay no out-of-pocket cost.
You can also contact your local health department for locations in your area that provide over-the-counter tests in your area at no cost. In addition, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has provided a list of community-based testing sites which can be found here. COVID-19 tests are also available without cost-sharing to covered individuals when administered by a health care provider such as a nurse, doctor, or pharmacist, without limitation.
1Orders not picked up within 72 hours (about 3 days) will be cancelled. Pickup cannot happen via drive through and tests will not be shipped.
2Some pharmacies may not be able to process claims for OTC tests at the pharmacy counter. If this happens, you can pay for the test and then submit a claim for reimbursement.
