Filing claims for Over-the-Counter (OTC), at-home COVID-19 tests

The Department of Finance and Administration has released new information about how to file claims for over-the-counter, at-home COVID-19 test kits.

If you purchased an at-home COVID-19 test on or after January 15, 2022, you may be eligible for reimbursement. As long as the test is used to diagnose a COVID-19 infection for yourself or a covered family member, you can request reimbursement through CVS Caremark. Claims for OTC at-home COVID-19 tests should only be filed to CVS Caremark. These claims should not be filed to Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Mississippi.

Go to CVS Caremark Pharmacy Benefits for more information.

Is It Time to Review Your Life Insurance Beneficiary?

Designate your beneficiary today!

Beneficiaries are the most important part of life insurance. It’s important that they be reviewed and updated annually and any time you have a major life event. Even if you believe the selected individual may receive the benefit by default, designating a beneficiary expedites payment and ensures the proceeds from your policy will be distributed according to your wishes. Nothing overrides your choice of designated beneficiary, not even a living will.

If you have not designated a beneficiary for your group life insurance benefits through the State of Mississippi yet, please follow the instructions below.

  1. Log into Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi: https://www.bcbsms.com
