Biden administration to require insurers to pay for eight COVID-19 tests per month
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki holds briefing
The White House said private health insurers will be required to pay for up to eight COVID-19 tests per person per month starting Jan. 15, while Americans can expect to be able to order free tests purchased by the government later this month.
"Under President Biden’s leadership, we are requiring insurers and group health plans to make tests free for millions of Americans. This is all part of our overall strategy to ramp-up access to easy-to-use, at-home tests at no cost," Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra said in a press release Monday.
But free tests may be hard to find, as a shortage of tests continues to grip the nation.
