If you purchase an over-the-counter COVID-19 test from a pharmacy, store, or online retailer and are charged for your test, submit to Elixir for reimbursements ( see form). If your plan has not set up a network of preferred stores, pharmacies, and online retailers at which you can obtain a test with no out-of-pocket expense, you will be reimbursed the amount of the cost of the test. For example, if you buy a two-pack of tests for $34, the plan or insurer would reimburse $34.
If your plan has set up a network of preferred stores, pharmacies, and online retailers at which you can obtain a test with no out-of-pocket expense, you can still obtain tests from other retailers if you buy them outside of that network. Your plan is required to reimburse you at a rate of up to $12 per individual test (or the cost of the test, if less than $12). Save your receipt(s) to submit to Elixir for reimbursement at a rate of at least $12 per individual test (or the cost of the test, if less than $12).

Beginning in 2023, members who receive an annual physical will experience a decrease in their in-network deductible, which will be $500 per individual and $1,000 per family. If you do not receive a valid annual physical in 2022, your in network deductible will increase to $1,500 per individual and $3,000 per family beginning in 2023. The Wellness Benefit Account will not receive additional contributions beginning in 2023.
