The Home Test to Treat program now offers free testing, telehealth and treatment for both COVID-19 and flu to eligible adults nationwide, the National Institutes of Health announced. It began in January as a pilot program for COVID-19. Any adult with a current positive test for COVID-19 or flu can enroll to receive free telehealth care and prescribed medications delivered to their home. Adults who do not have COVID-19 or flu also may enroll to receive free at-home tests that detect both viruses if they are uninsured or enrolled in Medicare, Medicaid, the Veterans Affairs health care system or Indian Health Services.
