New COVID-19 Testing Options: Onsite and At-Home

CCHP has recently greatly increased member benefits for COVID-19 testing.  Members have unprecedented access and coverage for detection and prevent transmission of COVID-19.  All CCHP members have access to COVID-19 tests – both onsite and at-home – at no cost.

 

Here is what this means for CCHP members in Individual and Family, Covered California, and Employer Group plans:

  • No prior authorization will be necessary to obtain these tests.
  • COVID-19 tests can be obtained Over-The-Counter (OTC) at the authorized CCHP At-Home Test Provider Network. These include pharmacies, retail stores, and online retailers. Simply, show your CCHP Member ID card at check-out.(See the list here.) You may receive up to eight (8) tests per month.
  • CCHP will reimburse out-of-pocket costs to the member for up to eight (8) tests per month and up to $12 / test.  Members may obtain reimbursement for out-of-pocket costs by submitting a completed reimbursement form, along with proof of purchase.

Here is what this means to CCHP Medicare Advantage plan members in Senior, Senior Value, and Senior Select programs:

  • No prior authorization will be necessary to obtain these tests.
  • Anyone with Medicare Part B (and CCHP Medicare Advantage plan), can obtain up to 8 test kits each month from an eligible pharmacy or a participating health care provider. You may need to show your original Medicare (red and blue card) insurance card to use this benefit. Please visit this website for the list of eligible pharmacies: https://www.medicare.gov/medicare-coronavirus#300
