PEHP Offers at-home COVID Tests Through Pharmacy Benefit
PEHP members can get eight at-home COVID tests per person/month at no charge through their local network pharmacy. To find a pharmacy near you go to pehp.org/pharmacy and login to the Express Scripts website. Currently PEHP is working with network pharmacies to put this benefit in place. It is expected that all will be able to process this byt January 31, 2022.
Employee’s who obtain tests between January 15 and January 31 may seek reimbursement by:
- Returning to the pharmacy with the receipt for purchase after January 31 and asking the pharmacy to reprocess the claim. In these cases the refund will be issued immediately to the member.
- Completing a direct claim form and including a copy of the pharmacy receipt showing the NDC number. Completed forms will be reimbursed by Express Scripts. This process is in development and more details will follow.
