TRICARE covers the cost of at-home test kits that are FDA approved and ordered by a TRICARE authorized provider for a medically necessary purpose, such as exhibition of symptoms. The Defense Heath Agency is reviewing the latest guidance on at-home testing kits in order to identify whether any changes to the current policy are warranted. As a reminder, the DHA reminds all beneficiaries to follow currently approved TRICARE requirements for COVID-19 testing. Those guidelines can be reviewed on TRICARE’s web site at https://tricare.mil/HealthWellness/HealthyLiving/Coronavirus/COVID-Symptoms-and-Testing.
