About Lucira Check It COVID-19 Tests:

When I first learned of the Lucira COVID-19 test, made by Lucira in Emeryville, California; the first question I had was will it be able to detect all the COVID-19 variants with accuracy? After visiting their website, I learned the answer is yes! The Lucira Check It COVID-19 Test detects all variants of concern, including Omicron and all BA sub variants, with 98% accuracy.

How Does Lucira COVID-19 Test Work?

Lucira COVID-19 Test is a molecular test that amplifies the virus's genetic material while the test is running just like PCR tests given at your doctor's office or pharmacies. 

Will my Insurance Cover this Test?

My next question was, will my insurance cover it? Yes, to that question too! Lucira Check It COVID-19 tests are covered reimbursable, either fully or partially, by most insurance providers! It’s important to check with your insurance. The more I read about the research behind the tests, the more I felt that these tests were well worth the $75.00 dollars, especially, if insurance reimburses for them.  

Consult Your Doctor:

Before I tell you what's in the test, I do want to disclose that I am not a doctor, so please consult yours if you have any questions at all about COVID-19 testing. Below is a disclosure statement from Lucira about their COVID-19 test.

What comes in the single-use  Lucira Check It COVID-19 Tests: 

Contents of LUCIRA Health COVID-19 test

I've taken the testing supplies out of the box, but wanted to keep them sterile until I or a family member needs to use them, so I didn't take anything out of the sterile packaging, However, if you look at the box in my first photo, you can see what the tester looks like. In each single-use test box you'll receive:

  • The Test Unit 
  • Two AA Batteries (to insert in test unit)
  • One Sample Vial
  • One Nasal Swab
  • Instruction Pamphlet
  • One Disposable Bag
  • Scannable Test Results on back of box (shown below)

Back of Test Box

Scan the Test Box, Get Your Travel Pass!

You'll need to scan the QR codes with your results so you can access the LUCI Pass!

I really like this additional feature, especially for traveling with kids! After you use the Lucira Check It COVID-19 Tests and get your results, usually in 11 to 30 minutes, you'll go to, then scan the QR codes on the back of the box and that creates a verified test result you can show as proof while traveling, attending events like concerts, etc. You won't be asked to download yet another app either. You'll be directed to a website that will then send you your test results.
