Health Share ID Cards (OHP Members)
You can use OHSU Health Services if your Health Share ID card lists OHSU Health Services as your physical health plan. Your physical health plan is listed on the back or inside of your Health Share ID card.
We expect new information guidelines about when and how often plan members will need to reapply for benefits. The best source of information at this time is this Redetermination FAQ provided by Health Share of Oregon.
At-home COVID tests for members
OHSU Health Services members can get at-home COVID-19 test kits at no cost. OHSU Health Services cannot reimburse members for over the counter at-home tests purchased on their own.
- If you have not already, go to the U.S. government website to order 4 free tests per mailing address.
- Go to your local in-network pharmacy to buy at-home tests using your pharmacy benefit at point of sale.
- OHSU Health Services covers at-home COVID-19 antigen testing kits through pharmacy point-of-sale (POS) for members who have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or who have had confirmed or suspected exposure to COVID-19.
- This coverage is for home tests as a diagnostic tool, not a general screening tool; and does not replace coverage for COVID-19 testing done in clinics and labs.
- OHSU Health will cover up to four units per month without a primary care provider’s (PCP) order or prior authorization.
- If you need more than four tests per month, contact your PCP. OHSU Health Services may cover more than four units per month when ordered by the PCP as a necessary component of an individualized care plan.
Please note the following:
- One test is the collection and processing of one sample, regardless of package size or packaging directions.
- For example, a product that comes in a package with two tests and directs the user to use the second test 36 to 72 hours after the first is counted as two tests.
- All other COVID-19 home test products require PCP order and prior authorization.
