COVID Testing Access Update
Expanded PCR Tests and no-cost tests for Medicare/Medicaid recipients
The Heath Board of Health wants you all to know that for those with private Medical insurance, Medicare part B, or an Advantage plan, please remember to take advantage of the Covid 19 public health emergency (PHE) which provide their insurers up to 8 at home Covid 19 test kits per month at NO COST from their participating pharmacies or health care providers.
Please note that the current PHE will expire July 15th, but will likely renew through October, stock up while you can! It is also advisable to note expiration dates on your test kits and use the ones that will expire sooner!
For a partial list of participating pharmacies please refer to https://www.medicare.gov/medicare-coronavirus.
