COVID-19 Member Support
Here at Friday Health Plans, we’ve taken several steps to ensure you are supported and can access needed care during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
$0 COVID-19 Testing and Treatment
- Friday Health Plans will cover testing and treatment of COVID-19 at no cost to members–no coinsurance and no copays.
$0 At-Home COVID-19 Tests
Starting January 15, 2022, Friday members can receive up to eight at-home COVID tests per 30-day period (that cost $12 or less) for $0 when purchased at a Friday in-network pharmacy. Here are the details:
- Members will need to bring a copy of their member ID and complete the transaction with the pharmacy. Each Friday member in a household can purchase eight at-home COVID tests per 30-day period. Many major pharmacy chains accept Friday Health Plans. Please visit our Pharmacy RX Resources page to find a pharmacy near you.
- If a member purchases an at-home COVID test at an out-of-network pharmacy or opts to pay out of pocket at the time of purchase, the member can submit a reimbursement of up to $12, or the cost of a test, whichever is less. Please submit this form for reimbursement to Capital Rx: Attn: Claims Dept., 228 Park Avenue South, Suite 87234, New York, NY 10003. Capital RX will process your request within 10-15 of receiving your form.
Friday Health Plans will cover the vaccine at $0 to members.
If you are required to pay upfront at an out-of-network provider, you can submit a request for reimbursement by sending a copy of your receipt and itemized statement from the provider to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure the statement includes your name, service date, amount paid, and services charged.

Home health coverage
For patients who, as determined by a medical provider, can be appropriately monitored and treated at home, outside a health care facility setting, carriers are reminded that they must provide coverage for necessary medical equipment and medications for in-home treatment. This may include the following durable medical equipment and medications as deemed medically necessary by the treating provider:
- Any medications determined to be medically appropriate for the treatment of COVID-19
- Home infusion therapy
- Electrocardiographs and cardiac monitors
Friday Health Plans will cover an additional one-time early refill of any necessary prescriptions to make sure you have medications in the event you need to limit contact with others.
