June 30 (Reuters) - U.S. health insurer Humana Inc  HUM.N 
will offer its members at-home COVID-19 test collection kits, as
well as provide access to drive-through testings at the hundreds
of neighborhood markets of Walmart Inc  WMT.N , it said on
Tuesday. 
    For drive-through testing, the insurer said it has tied up
with the retail chain and Quest Diagnostics  DGX.N . The company
will also offer LabCorp's  LH.N  at-home collection test kits
for its members.
   Humana said new testing sites at Walmart pharmacies will be
added between now and August for pharmacist-observed testing.
Quest will pick up the samples collected for testing.
    U.S. retailers including Walmart, CVS Health Corp  CVS.N ,
Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc  WBA.O , and Target Corp  TGT.N

ramp up testing in the country.

eligible and it has waived member costs for the tests. (https://reut.rs/38cJS70)
