Employees may be eligible for free at-home COVID-19 tests

Effective January 15, 2022, health plans and health insurance issuers are mandated to provide coverage for over-the-counter (OTC) COVID-19 test kits during the public health emergency.

Members enrolled in the Consumer Driven Health Plan, Low Deductible Plan, and Premier Plan:

  • Currently, purchased tests must be submitted for reimbursement. Within the next 30 days, Express Scripts expects to have additional options that will allow members to acquire over-the-counter (OTC) tests at participating pharmacies with no up-front costs to the member. Additional information will be provided once this becomes available.
  • OTC tests may be purchased at a pharmacy or non-pharmacy retailers such as Amazon.
  • To be reimbursed for your test, members will need to submit a pharmacy receipt along with a paper claim form to Express Scripts. For assistance, please contact Express Scripts at 1-855-889-7708.
  • The maximum reimbursement for each test may be limited to $12. Tests that come in packs of 2 (counted as 2 of the 8 limit) may be limited to a $24 reimbursement rate.

Remote work policy and agreements

Remote work arrangement policy

The University’s Remote Work Arrangement (RWA) Policy reflects our core institutional belief that we will continue to provide “majority in-person educational experiences and degree programs for our students,” while also providing flexibility in the future determination of Remote Work Arrangements.

Remote work agreements

The process for requesting a Remote Work Agreement is now live in Workday. You may also review the application process and deadlines in Knowledge Base: Initiating a Remote Work Agreement (RWA) in Workday.
