Get a refund if you have insurance

Although the $ 6 discount on each test is a great deal, insurance companies (private and group health plans) are required to cover eight FDA-approved covid-19 tests over-the-counter per month. If your insurance provider considers an iHealth test ordered through Amazon to be out of the networkyou can still get a refund up to $ 12 per. test – which will cover almost the full cost of each test before tax.

Why we like the iHealth Covid-19 Antigen Rapid Test

The iHealth Covid-19 test works like any standard set at home. It is also one of the easier tests to use of the many we have tested in our Rapid At-Home Covid-19 test guide. Inside the box you get two nasal swabs, two vials of solution and two test cartridges. Taking a test is straightforward. Wet both nostrils to collect your sample, soak it in the solution, add three drops of it to the cartridge, and wait 15 minutes for your results to appear on the card.

If the test is positive, two lines will appear on the cassette – one next to the “C” (control) line and the other next to “T” (test line). If the result is negative, a line appears next to “C”. Since each package comes with two tests, if you test negative, test again within 24 to 48 hours, especially if you have recently been exposed to someone who tested positive. Once the test is complete, you will be able to upload your results to iHealth’s companion app. With negative test results, the app will give you access to an iHealth passport on your device, which you can use as digital proof.

If you buy Covid test kits in bulk, be sure to store them properly – out of direct sunlight and in a dry place where the temperature is between 35 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit. You should also keep an eye on the expiration dates. iHealth recently extended the durability of its test kits to Nine months; you can check the new expiration of each test kit by lot number via iHealth website. It is also important to ensure that you use the supplied test cartridge within one hour of opening the foil pouch.

Note: In May, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning about counterfeit versions of iHealth Covid-19 Antigen Rapid Test kits that have not been approved for sale in the United States. The images in the instructions for use that come with some counterfeit versions differ slightly from the authentic version. Both iHealth and the FDA are currently in the process of finding additional identifiable signs to look for. The link we have shared here to Amazon was provided to us by iHealth and is the FDA approved version.
