Each household in the U.S. can now have four free COVID-19 at-home tests shipped directly to their home at no cost!

These tests are rapid antigen "at-home" or "self" tests — not PCR tests which require a lab drop-off. The "at-home" or "self" tests can be taken anywhere and give results within 30 minutes.

Guard against scammers trying to steal your personal information. When ordering tests, use the official, secure government website:

Watch out for phone scammers, too. If you get a phone call requesting information so that free at-home tests can be mailed to you, hang up — it's a scam!

Remember: Medicare pays for COVID-19 tests performed by a lab, such as PCR or antigen/rapid tests, at no cost to you when the test is ordered by an authorized health care professional. Those in a Medicare Advantage Plan should check with their plan to see if their plan offers coverage and payment for at-home tests.

It's important to know that at this time, Original Medicare does not pay for over-the-counter COVID-19 tests that you pick up from the drug store. That means these over-the-counter tests are not covered by Medicare Supplement plans, either.  

If you are on a Medicare Advantage plan your plan could cover it. Check with your insurance company to be sure.
