BeneTip: I have my health coverage through Kent State. Will my prescription coverage through CVS Caremark reimburse the costs for over-the-counter COVID-19 test(s) I purchase?

Yes, however, there are limitations you should know. First, you would have had to purchase the at-home COVID-19 test after January 15, 2022. Also, there are monetary limits that apply and specific directions you must follow to be reimbursed. Lastly, in many cases you now can purchase the over-the-counter COVID-19 tests using your prescription drug card and experience no out-of-pocket costs.
