NEW YORK –
Twenty-eight Healtha telehealth company that improves access to sexual and reproductive care for women in underserved communities, and realpillthe digital health platform connecting telehealth, diagnostics and pharmacy to power the future of consumer healthcare, today announced a partnership to provide customers with the easiest and most convenient way to use the insurance coverage to access rapid home COVID-19 tests.
“As of January 2022, health plans cover up to eight home COVID-19 tests per person per month. Generally, individuals should pay for COVID-19 testing up front and submit a receipt for reimbursement. However, this can be a barrier for those who do not have the ability to pay upfront and wait to be reimbursed,” said Bruno Van Tuykom, co-founder of Twentyeight Health. “As a telehealth company that has always focused on affordability and accessibility, we want to increase access to testing by accepting insurance in advance and offering free home delivery. Twentyeight Health’s partnership with Truepill helps us achieve this goal and remove the barriers that prevent many people from accessing the testing they need.
By leveraging Truepill’s COVID-19 testing coverage platform, Twentyeight Health is able to provide customers with convenient online access to at-home COVID-19 antigen testing. With a reliable test inventory and nationwide fulfillment and delivery capabilities, Truepill offers a variety of tests and facilitates fast shipping directly to customers’ doors. Customers with private insurance accepted by Truepill can use their insurance for coverage at checkout, eliminating the burden of upfront fees and the need to submit a receipt for reimbursement. The Twentyeight Health team will be available to provide insurance reimbursement information in English and Spanish.
“As COVID-19 transitions from a pandemic to an endemic state, improving access to convenient and affordable testing will remain critical to managing the virus,” said Varun Boriah, senior vice president of diagnostics at Truepill. “We are proud to partner with Twentyeight Health to provide easy and reliable access to COVID-19 home testing. By combining Truepill’s unique COVID-19 testing coverage platform with Twentyeight Health’s user-friendly online experience, we are breaking down barriers to care. Together, we deliver a streamlined online shopping experience, while eliminating out-of-pocket costs with robust insurance coverage and free shipping right to customers’ doorsteps. »
