At-Home Testing

  • If you have coverage under a Boeing-sponsored BCBSIL plan, we will be covering FDA-approved over-the-counter COVID-19 at-home tests through your Prime Therapeutics® pharmacy benefits. 
  • If you aren’t sure if a test kit is FDA-approved, ask your pharmacist for help.
  • Up to eight tests every rolling 30 days per member will be covered. (For example, you can purchase four boxes that include two over-the-counter COVID-19 tests.)  Your cost will be determined by where your FDA-authorized tests are purchased.
  • Tests purchased from a pharmacy in Prime's network, will be at no cost to you if the claim is submitted electronically. 
  • If a network pharmacy can’t submit your claim electronically, you can access a prescription claim form to file for reimbursement.  
  • Tests purchased from an out-of-network pharmacy or as a retail purchase (i.e. purchased from or at a retail checkout line at Walgreens instead of from their pharmacy), will be reimbursed up to $12 after you submit a prescription claim form to Prime.
  • Over-the-counter tests for things like return to work or school, travel and recreational event requirements may not be covered.
