On January 30, 2023, the Administration announced a Statement of Administration Policy declaring their intent to terminate the COVID-19 national emergency and public health emergency (PHE) on May 11, 2023. 

Subsequent to the PHE termination, beginning August 1, 2023, we will modify our Ambetter Health benefit coverage on certain COVID-19 related services. This includes changes to coverage for COVID-19 Over-the-Counter (OTC) testing and/or Home Testing Kits. Please refer to the following Q&A’s for more information.
