SKU: TEST Category:

The Lucira Check It COVID-19 Test Kit is a single-use test kit intended to detect the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 that causes COVID-19. This test is authorized for over-the-counter (OTC) use with self-collected nasal swab samples in individuals with or without COVID-19 symptoms aged 14 and older, and in children aged 2-13 collected by an adult. This test is similar to a PCR test in that it utilizes a molecular amplification technology for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA.

Positive results are indicative of the presence of SARS-CoV-2. Individuals who test positive should self-isolate and seek additional care from their healthcare provider. Positive results do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses.

Negative results do not preclude SARS-CoV-2 infection. Individuals who test negative and continue to experience COVID-like symptoms should seek follow up care from their healthcare provider. Negative results are presumptive and confirmation with a molecular assay performed in a laboratory, if necessary, for patient management may be performed.

For use under the Food and Drug Administration’s Emergency Use Authorization only.

Test results can be reported through the LUCI secure portal, to relevant public health authorities in accordance with local, state, and federal requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Exactly how many tests are covered?

    Each insurance member can access eight individual tests per month for free. For example, if you have a family of four on the same plan, your family is eligible for 32 free tests per month.

  • Some insurance companies will fully reimburse you after you buy the tests.

    Follow your insurance provider’s instructions to submit reimbursement claims. They usually need a receipt and, sometimes, the test kit box.

  • Other insurance companies will set up a preferred provider program, where you can purchase tests with no up-front cost.

    Your insurance company may work with a network of stores and pharmacies where you can get up to eight at-home tests per month with no out-of-pocket cost. If your insurer sets up a program and you purchase test kits from outside the program, they are still required to partially reimburse you up to $12 per test, for up to eight tests per month.

  • Are at-home tests I purchased before January 15, 2022 eligible for reimbursement?

    No, only at-home test kits purchased on or after that date are eligible.
