Pharmacies: To get a covered test for free, visit a pharmacy in the Healthfirst pharmacy network. If you pay for a test out-of-pocket, keep your receipt to submit it for reimbursement.
We understand that many pharmacies are short staffed and may not be able to process your request. If you are unable to get a test at the pharmacy counter, please purchase one at the retail counter and keep your receipt for reimbursement. You can request your reimbursement online through your Caremark.com account—there’s no need to mail anything in.
To request reimbursement online, visit COVID-19 OTC | CVS Caremark and follow these instructions:
- Sign in or register at Caremark.com
- Upload your proof of purchase; this can be a digital receipt or a photo of a paper receipt.
If you get a covered test at a pharmacy that is not in the Healthfirst pharmacy network, Healthfirst will reimburse you up to $12 per individual test. Make sure to keep your receipt. You will receive reimbursement approximately 30 days from receipt of your out-of-pocket payment documentation. For help with reimbursement, call Healthfirst Member Services at 1-866-463-6743 (TTY 1-888-542-3821), Monday to Friday, 8am‒6pm. REMEMBER: Always call the pharmacy first to make sure that they have the tests in stock.
Online: Every home in the U.S. is eligible to order four free at-home COVID-19 tests from the U.S. federal government. Go to covidtests.gov to order your tests.
