UnitedHealthcare UnitedHealthcare’s initial preferred OTC retailer for at-home COVID-19 tests is Walmart Pharmacy, where members who have UnitedHealthcare Pharmacy benefits administered by OptumRx will have no up-front cost for tests purchased on or after January 15, 2022 and will not have to submit a form for reimbursement. UnitedHealthcare is working to add additional preferred retailers.

If the member purchases an at-home COVID-19 test, on or after January 15, 2022, at any in-store or online retailer other than the in-store Walmart Pharmacy counter, they may submit purchase receipt(s) for reimbursement at the UnitedHealthcare member portal for a maximum reimbursement of $12 per test. Reimbursement for tests purchased at Walmart.com and the Walmart checkout counters found at the front of the store also must be submitted through the UnitedHealthcare member portal. Many COVID-19 tests are sold as a two-pack so that means the test pack would be reimbursed at $24 ($12 for each test).
