What is the true accuracy of these tests? Are there reports of false negatives?
Are these legitimate enough to show before I go to Israel?

Matt

The iHealth® COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test when conducted by a lay user correctly identified 94.3% of positive samples. Additionally, the iHealth® COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test correctly identified 98.1% of negative samples.

https://www.fda.gov/media/153923/download

For comparison, the BinaxNow tests are apparently 84% sensitive to positives, and 98.5% for negative.

JS

Matt, where did you get your data? According to this https://secure.medicalletter.org/downloads/5041a_table.pdf BinaxNow is more accurate.
The Positive percent agreement/negative percent agreement is…
iHealth:Symptomatic: 94%/98% — Asymptomatic: 85-88%/No Data
BinaxNOW: Symptomatic: 100%/91% — Asymptomatic: 92%/97%

Matt

I don’t think you can use this for travel. The FAQ on their website says regarding accuracy:

“Based on the results of a clinical study where the iHealth® COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test was compared to an FDA authorized molecular SARS-CoV-2 test, iHealth® COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test correctly identified 94.3% of positive specimens and 98.1% of negative specimens.”

I tried to post this with the link to the FDA study that confirms these stats but I think it was auto-removed.

Google is your friend…. direct from the source

“not a home test kit”

Bronx Mama

I haven’t seen these *out* of stock those week. And the Abbott Binaxnow tests have been available this week for $14/2 through Walmart from 3-7 AM Eastern.

UR

ships in 9 days

will go to urgent care center instead

UR

some states starting offering at home kits free of charge (got today sms from state)

Stevenn

Hi, I think it may be worth posting a reminder to all of those that took advantage of the Kohl’s rebates black Friday deal that the deadline is coming up.

Danny

Lots of mixed reviews on these around missing components, anyone have experience?

Dave Hanson

Showing dead again for me, delivery Jan 10.

Rafi

I just bought them again. They are great for “peace of mind” prior to walking into an affair or a family event or being with family. The price break makes sense. NOTE: These are not “legally” accepted anywhere as proof of anything (ie. no for Israel)

WonderingYid

+1. Just hope they are accurate.

DoB

“Usually ships within 12 days.”

To be eligible for reimbursement through insurance, does the order need to be placed after January 15 or is it enough for the order to ship after January 15?

Tim

When ordered on 1/8, it said 12-15 days to ship. Received 1/10.

Liam K. Nuj

How would the insurance know and why should they care when it was ordered? If the invoice says January 15th or later, then that is the purchase date. Period.
Personally, I would rather get them from a source that supplies them with no out-of-pocket charges and they bill the insurance company. Does that setup exist yet?

MaiaG

It depends on your insurance company. Some of them have established a pharmacy chain as their preferred provider. Then you can go there and show your insurance card and it’s like a prescription with no copay. Of course that only works if the stores in your area have enough tests in stock and mine do not.

Abraham

RE: You may want to stock up now if you need them, even though they are not currently covered by insurance.

If you order now Amazon won’t ship and charge you before a few days. (They say 12 days to my address). so you might get the refund

Bronx Mama

How is it free after reimbursement if reimbursement? Is the reimbursement not $12?

Izzy

I believe rapid tests are acceptable for travel to Israel however even if gets you on the flight you still have another test when you land so its not worth taking chances with a rapid that supposedly can have false results (more then the pcr tests)

Joel

Anyone got any money from insurance

Abraham

…Your claim is in progress. A claim typically takes 14 days to process. We will then send you a claim determination in the mail…

df

Is medicaid also covering these?

steven rothman

They are NOT covered by Medicare

Good Luck!

Amerigroup said on their website that you could get free tests only if you order from them. They don’t give any info on submitting a claim to be reimbursed for tests that you bought yourself…

somy

Has anyone figured out how to get a receipt for walmart online order for insurance submission? or insurance will accept order page snapshot?

Dan

NoVA Rick

Is the ‘month’ in question a calendar month or a rolling month from the latest purchase?

Dib

Go puff more lucrative with 10$ credits

exShoYoGuy

Careful, my insurance company is refusing to refund these from Amazon and they keep giving me the runaround telling me I need to buy them from an official pharmacy yad yada even though Amazon is. Amazon is refusing to take them back once you buy these and I’m out several hundred dollars because my insurance is refusing to refund me and I don’t even know how to fight that.

Zf

Which insurance company was that?

YoLaViajera

I also bought them from Amazon and am waiting to get reimbursed from my insurance company (Cigna). What insurance company do you have? You need to share that detail for this info. to be helpful. Thanks!

Stephen

Are these tests good enough for returning back to the US?

Liam K. Nuj

Why bother buying it if the guvmint is giving them away?

Mars

Agreed.
You can have mine that they sent me.
Not sure what the point of testing is at this point

DoB

Because maybe some people here want to avoid infecting others with COVID. If you don’t know whether you have it, you won’t know to isolate to avoid spreading it. (And I’m guessing that somebody who posts a comment like that is probably not big on masking.)

DoB

Because maybe you need more than you can get for free.
