COVID-19 Home Test Kits Now Available
Effective February 17, 2022, Maryland Medicaid expanded access to FDA approved Pharmacy over the counter at-home COVID test kits. MPC members will need to use their Fee-For-Service Identification Card (Red & White Card) to receive this benefit through a Fee-For-Service retail pharmacy and from a pharmacist. Maryland Medicaid will cover a maximum of four tests every rolling 30 days with no copayment. Members are NOT able to be reimbursed for any out-of-pocket expenses.
