Helping Employees Understand the Over-the-Counter COVID-19 Test Coverage Program

March 4, 2022

Your employees with prescription drug benefits administered through Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana are eligible to get COVID-19 at-home tests at no cost to them.

You can share a flier that explains what’s covered, where to buy FDA-authorized diagnostic test kits and how they’re paid for – in English and Spanish. They should use the Prime Therapeutics® claim form for reimbursement.


Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana (BCBSMT) contracts with Prime Therapeutics to provide pharmacy benefit management and related other services. In addition, contracting pharmacies are contracted through Prime Therapeutics. The relationship between BCBSMT and contracting pharmacies is that of independent contractors. BCBSMT, as well as several independent Blue Cross and Blue Shield Plans, has an ownership interest in Prime Therapeutics.
