Test to Treat

“Test to Treat” is a nationwide initiative to provide quick access to testing and if appropriate treatments for COVID-19. Through 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 at one location. These “One-Stop Test to Treat” sites are available at hundreds of locations nationwide, including pharmacy-based clinics, Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA)-supported federally-qualified health centers (FQHCs), and long-term care facilities.” For more information, including a Test to Treat locator, visit the Test to Treat webpage or call the call center at 1-800-232-0233.
