The spread of COVID-19 isn’t slowing down, and making sure you are taking care of your health and protecting your family and friends is more important than ever.
A benefit of having health insurance is being able to rely on the doctors, labs, facilities and drug stores in your health plan’s network to get tested when you start showing symptoms or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. By making sure a testing site or lab is in network, you can be confident that all the costs of your test will be covered.
If you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 or are having symptoms that worry you, an at-home test may be a good place to start. If the test is positive, your next step will be to call your doctor so they can guide your care.
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois members can call Customer Service at the number listed on your member ID card for help finding an in-network pharmacy or testing site near you.
What about getting the COVID-19 vaccines? Do you know when you can get it and where to go?

HI Mikeodey: please see this new article. https://connect.bcbsil.com/ask-bcbsil/b/notifications/posts/covid19-at-home-tests
When will you have more information about getting reimbursed for up to 8 at-home covid tests per person, per month? Can’t find any info on the site.
CDC recommends checking your state site: https://www.cdc.gov/publichealthgateway/healthdirectories/healthdepartments.html
Walgreens is a good choice too.
