U-M employees have two sources for at-home COVID tests

Topics:

Free, at-home COVID-19 tests are available to the University of Michigan community through two new federal programs.

Every household in the United States is eligible to order four free, at-⁠home COVID-⁠19 tests through a new government website. Orders will usually ship in 7-12 days.

In addition, anyone covered by a U-M health plan is eligible to receive up to eight FDA-approved, at-home COVID-19 tests each month.

There is no out-of-pocket cost to the member or eligible dependents as long as the tests are purchased at network pharmacies. However, this does not apply to online purchases.

 To ensure they have no cost or reimbursement forms to submit when buying tests, members should present their Magellan Rx prescription card at the time of purchase.

Network pharmacies include all major chains — such as CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Meijer, Kroger, Walmart, Costco and Sam’s Club — and most independent pharmacies, including Michigan Medicine.

If members purchase tests at non-network pharmacies or retail stores, they must submit a claim form and original receipt for reimbursement, which will be capped at $12 per test.

The form and more information also are available in the News and Updates section of the U-M Prescription Drug Plan web page.

Online purchases will be processed as if the tests were bought at a non-network pharmacy, even if the pharmacy is in the network.

Free, immediate testing is available through U-M depending on the need.

    I called the MagellanRx Help Desk and found out that users need to register at MagellanRx with a personal email, b/c the @umich.edu email blocks the links needed to register.
    Please update the article providing this information to save users and web support hours of fruitless effort. 🙂

      Hi, Ruth. I’m so sorry you had a problem. May I contact you offline to discuss? Or please contact me at kgoodin@umich.edu so I can sort this out. Thank you.

      To clarify: Eligible employees/dependents/retirees do not need to register on the MagellanRx portal to be reimbursed for at-home COVID-19 tests. For reimbursement, please follow the steps outlined in the article and use the referred websites as resources. If you still have difficulties, please call the Shared Services Center at (734) 615-2000, Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    2 requests:

    1. Could you confirm what ‘University of Michigan health plan members” means? Is this Premier Care members, or any person covered under a UM-sponsored health plan?
    1. Could you please include a list or link to a list of ‘network pharmacies”? I’m not familiar with which pharmacies are in network?

    Thanks!

      Good morning, Phillip. I’m sorry for the delay in answering your questions; we’re working diligently with Magellan Rx to correct some bugs identified yesterday. For now, contact Magellan Rx at (888) 272-1346 if you need a list of in-network pharmacies. I’ll follow up here once I have some answers, or an alternate site is available to view the network pharmacy list.

      To answer question #1: A University of Michigan Health Plan member is anyone who is covered by a U-M health plan, including U-M Premier Care, Community Blue PPO, Comprehensive Major Medical, GradCare and Michigan Care.

        Hi, again, Phillip,

        All major chains (e.g., CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Meijer, Kroger, Walmart, Costco, Sam’s Club), and most independent pharmacies, including Birdi and Michigan Medicine, are in-network pharmacies. If you have a specific pharmacy you’d like to check, please let me know. The Magellan Rx portal is still glitching, but we’re hoping you can check this information in your member account there soon!

    It seems the local pharmacies are not all set up for charging directly to insurance yet. Walgreens on Washtenaw did NOT accept UM prescription drug plan card and required we pay out of pocket and submit the form to get reimbursed. They have signage telling people this is how they are doing it. FYI.

      Hi, Nancy,

      Thanks for letting us know. Here’s the reimbursement form URL: hr.umich.edu/sites/default/files/magellan-rx-prescription-drug-claim-form.pdf. Please let me know if you need more information or assistance.

    2 quick questions:

    1) the $12 reimbursement for out of network, is that per unit or per actual test? Kits like binax now have 2 tests in the them. Would i get reimbursed $12 or $24 for a kit i bought on amazon or through a third party?

    2) Will the free kits be available for curbside or delivery services through the pharmacy? Would it apply for online orders? Like many, trying to avoid going indoors to public spaces as much as possible, especially when we don’t know if there is stock on hand.

    • Kim Goodin
      on January 18, 2022 at 12:43 pm

      Hi, Paul,

      The $12 reimbursement is per test, so if you have a 2-test kit, your reimbursement would be $24 if purchased from a non-network pharmacy.

      Online orders from Amazon, Costco, Sam’s Club, Walgreens, CVS, etc. are being processed by the vendors as non-network purchases, even if the pharmacy is in the U-M network. You’ll have to use the prescription drug reimbursement form for these online purchases.

      You’d have to contact the pharmacy directly regarding curbside service.

      I hope this answers your questions. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    I purchased home test kits in December 2021. Would I be able to get reimbursed for purchase of these test kits?

    • Kim Goodin
      on January 18, 2022 at 12:44 pm

      Hi, Margie,

      Per the federal mandate, only tests purchased on and after Jan. 15 are eligible for reimbursement.

    We were told at CVS (on 1/19/2022) that a prescription was necessary for the test to be covered at time of purchase. Without a prescription, we could pay out-of-pocket and file a claim with MagellanRx for reimbursement.

    Is that correct? Is a prescription necessary?

    Hi, Nathan.

    As long as you’re covered under a U-M health plan, no prescription is necessary for an at-home rapid antigen test. CVS should have accepted your prescription drug card with no cost to you. I’m sorry you had this experience. The mandate was implemented quickly, and some vendors haven’t adjusted yet. If you have that problem again (hopefully, you won’t), maybe bring up the following link on your smartphone for the pharmacist:

    Let me know if I can help further.

    I tried two different Krogers, a CVS, and Rite-Aid. I had the same experience, in that they will not cover without an rx and advise you to purchase and submit for reimbursement. I spoke with someone at Magellen and she said they should be using the Pharmacy’s NPI number as the provider/Dr in their system. Even with that information they would not even attempt to run it. So very frustrating. I will say the lady I spoke with at the number on my card was super helpful but the people in the pharmacy’s will not even attempt it. Even the recording at CVS says they will not do it.

    Hi, Amanda,

    I’m so sorry that you got the runaround! We’ve been reporting what’s supposed to happen, but it obviously is not happening. I’m in the process of changing our messaging so members know what to expect, but again, I apologize if we inadvertently contributed to a frustrating afternoon. Do you have the information you need to file a prescription drug claim form? If not, please feel free to email me at ksgoodin@umich.edu.
