  • Test to Treat

    COVID-19 Test to Treat 

    The Biden-Harris Administration launched a nationwide Test to Treat initiative, that has been expanded to give individuals an important way to rapidly access free lifesaving treatment for COVID-19. In this program, people are able to get tested and – if they are positive and treatments are appropriate for them – receive a prescription from a health care provider, and have their prescription filled all in one location. These “One-Stop Test to Treat” locations are available at hundreds of locations nationwide, including pharmacy-based clinics, federally-qualified community health centers (FQHCs), and long-term care facilities. People will also continue to be able to be tested and treated by their own health care providers who can appropriately prescribe these oral antivirals at locations where they are being distributed.
