U.S. Omicron plan: boosters, free at-home tests, tighter travel rules

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The Biden administration on Thursday sought to ramp up its pandemic response following U.S. detection of the Omicron coronavirus variant this week, making at-home COVID-19 tests available free of charge, accelerating its push for booster shots and tightening rules for travelers. Private health insurance companies will be required to reimburse customers for the cost of over-the-counter at-home COVID-19 tests, the White House said, with the administration issuing federal guidance by Jan. 15. At least eight over-the-counter rapid antigen tests have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, including Abbott Laboratories’ BinaxNOW, OraSure Technologies Inc’s InteliSwab, ACON Laboratories’ FlowFlex and Ellume’s home test.
