Right. Sure. Go ahead and try to find eight Covid tests. Another publicity stunt by an administration that has fallen down completely on Covid testing, even as it insists people get vaccinated or tested.
Meantime, the 500 million free tests you can supposedly order from the government have still not arrived.
According to Fox News:
The White House said private health insurers will be required to pay for up to eight COVID-19 tests per person per month starting Jan. 15, while Americans can expect to be able to order free tests purchased by the government later this month.
“Under President Biden’s leadership, we are requiring insurers and group health plans to make tests free for millions of Americans. This is all part of our overall strategy to ramp-up access to easy-to-use, at-home tests at no cost,” Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra said in a press release Monday.
But free tests may be hard to find, as a shortage of tests continues to grip the nation.
The administration is encouraging insurers to set up programs with pharmacies that would allow Americans to get tests through their plan with no up-front costs instead of submitting a claim to be reimbursed.
