Access to COVID-19 testing is critically important as we work to limit the spread of COVID-19 variants. Independence Blue Cross is working diligently to implement the Biden administration’s over the counter (OTC) testing program in the limited amount of time provided. However, we are concerned that the supply of tests may not be adequate to meet consumer demand. In the coming days we will work with the administration to obtain additional implementation guidance. We will share additional information as implementation plans become clearer. Members should keep their receipts for OTC COVID-19 tests purchased on or after January 15.
