· Health Plan of Nevada Individual and Employer Group health plan members: Beginning January 15, 2022, Health Plan of Nevada will cover most individual and employer group health plan members’ FDA-authorized OTC at-home COVID-19 diagnostic tests purchased on or after January 15, 2022, without a doctor’s prescription during the public health emergency period.

If you are a Health Plan of Nevada individual and employer group health plan member, you can now receive reimbursement for an OTC at-home COVID-19 test. You may do this in two ways:
1. At an in-store Walmart Pharmacy counter or in-store Rite Aid Pharmacy counter (including Bartell Drug locations): To get OTC at-home COVID-19 test(s) at no upfront cost, you must make your purchase at an in-store Walmart Pharmacy or in-store Rite Aid Pharmacy counter — and be sure you bring your member ID card with you.
2. At any other in-store or online retailer: You may submit a receipt for reimbursement online in the Online Member Center. You may also submit receipts through a reimbursement form (PDF). Reimbursement for tests purchased at Walmart.com, the Walmart checkout counters found at the front of the store, Riteaid.com or the checkout counters found at the front of the Rite Aid store also must be submitted through the Online Member Center.
