You can still get free at-home COVID test kits from the USPS. Here’s How – NBC Chicago

As COVID continues to evolve and Chicago continues to see a “high” level of community transmission thanks to highly contagious omicron subvariants, many are turning to home testing kits after experiencing symptoms.

And earlier this year, the federal government announced another set of four free at-home COVID test kits were available to order through the United States Postal Service.

Previously, residents could claim up to four home COVID test kits per household. However, the federal government’s announcement brings the total that each person is eligible for to eight tests in total.

Test kits are shipped to residences free of charge, according to the United States Postal Service. These tests will be presented in two separate packages, with four test kits in each package, according to the USPS.

Here’s how to sign up and get yours mailed to your home.

Additionally, earlier this year, the federal government said insurance companies were required to reimburse home COVID test kits at a rate of $12 per individual test. You may need to keep your receipt and give it to your insurance company for reimbursement.
