The WELS VEBA health plan covers at-home diagnostic COVID-19 tests obtained on or after January 15, 2022 at no cost to the member (up to eight per covered family member per 30-day period). Members can obtain at-home COVID-19 tests in the following ways:
- At an Express Scripts network retail pharmacy. Find a network pharmacy by visiting express-scripts.com and clicking “Find a Pharmacy.” Check out at the pharmacy counter and present your WELS VEBA ID card to obtain the covered tests at no cost. If the pharmacy charges you for the tests, submit a claim to Express Scripts for reimbursement (up to $12 per test) using this form.
- Order online through the Express Scripts pharmacy by logging in to your member account at express-scripts.com. Covered test kits will be mailed to you at no cost.
- At a non-network retail pharmacy. Submit a claim to Express Scripts for reimbursement (up to $12 per test) using this form.
- Order online through the federal government’s website at: covidtests.gov. Tests obtained through the federal government website are free for both members and the WELS VEBA plan, and do not count toward the WELS VEBA plan’s limit to cover eight tests per covered family member per 30-day period.
