Update: Effective May 11, 2023, with the end of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, your State Group Health Insurance plan may no longer cover over-the-counter COVID-19 tests. For more information, review the Update on COVID-19 Test and Vaccine Coverage Information article.
Effective January 15, 2022, UW System employees covered under the State Group Health Insurance Program can purchase over-the-counter COVID-19 diagnostic test kits at no cost.
If you purchase test kits at a pharmacy in the Navitus network, your tests will be covered without any out-of-pocket costs. To locate an in-network pharmacy, go to https://etf.benefits.navitus.com/, then:
If the pharmacy you are looking for does not appear online after you follow the above steps, or you would like help locating an in-network pharmacy, contact Navitus at (866) 333-2757.
If you purchase test kits at a pharmacy that is not in the Navitus network, from a retail store, online, or at your provider’s office, you can submit a claim form to Navitus for reimbursement.
