News Briefs: Express Scripts Rolls Out COVID Test Coverage Option | Nov. 23,2021

Cigna Corp.’s Express Scripts is offering its health plan and employer clients a “first-of-its-kind” option to cover over-the-counter COVID-19 tests. Starting Jan. 1, 2022, members of participating plans will be able to choose an applicable COVID-19 test kit at a participating in-network pharmacy and show their Express Scripts member ID card at checkout to process the kit through their pharmacy benefit. Plans that opt into the new solution can set a copay for the COVID tests either at a discounted rate or $0. “Our new COVID-19 test kit solution creates more affordable and easily accessible testing options, ultimately contributing to safer communities and less disruption in our daily lives,” said Amy Bricker, president of Express Scripts.
