What We Know and Don’t Know About the COVID-19 OTC Test Kit Requirement

Following the release of the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Treasury (collectively, the Departments) FAQ Part 51, a significant number of unanswered questions remain regarding the coverage of over-the-counter (OTC) COVID-19 tests.

In addition, we are seeing insurance carriers, third-party administrators (TPAs) and pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) implement solutions that differ based on varying interpretations of the guidance, which can create additional confusion for plan sponsors, who must make decisions regarding how their plans should be amended to comply with the new coverage requirements.

In this webinar, the Brown & Brown Regulatory and Legislative Strategy Group will discuss some frequently asked questions. The team will outline questions where some guidance may exist and questions that will require further clarification from the Departments.

Topics covered will include:

  • Potential notice requirements
  • Whether plan sponsors can increase employee contributions in
    response to the new requirement
  • Claim payment timelines
  • What ambiguities still exist?
