Under the new national Home Test to Treat Program, patients, regardless of insurance or immigration status, can get a free telehealth visit with a practitioner if they test positive for COVID or the flu. They can also get free or low-cost treatments (e.g., Paxlovid) delivered to their home or pharmacy. Also, all patients can once again get free COVID tests by mail.

The Home Test to Treat Program is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to better understand how technologies such as at-home tests and telemedicine can improve healthcare access for individuals across the country. Findings will be used to inform future public health programs for the American people. Any data shared with researchers will be limited to what is necessary to evaluate the program and will not include information which can identify individuals.
