HEALTH INSURANCE WILL REIMBURSE FOR AT-HOME COVID TESTS
President Niccollai announced today, on behalf of the Union Reimbursement Medical Plan, that there will be a modification to cover the cost of At-Home COVID Tests for members and their eligible dependents under a program requiring the submission of a claim form, accompanied by a receipt acknowledging proof of purchase.
These tests are not appropriate for unvaccinated members to submit to Employers in order to comply with the Biden vax or test mandate, since they are not administered by a third-party as required by the law. We are still awaiting the decision of the United States Supreme Court concerning the Biden mandate. Many Scholars believe the mandate may be overturned.
It is essential that members only use these At-Home Tests where they are needed, since abuse of this benefit will jeopardize the financial well-being of our excellent Welfare Service Benefit Fund.
Those seeking more information should contact our Welfare Fund Director Kathy Pridmore @ 973-256-6790.
