Testing & Treatment 

Getting Tested for COVID

Updated April 27, 2023

Getting tested is important if you have symptoms that could be from COVID. If you’re sick, getting treatment early can help prevent serious illness. With the expiration of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, private insurance companies are no longer required to cover COVID-19 tests without cost sharing, both for at-home and laboratory tests.

Getting Treatment for COVID

The FDA has authorized certain antiviral medications to treat mild to moderate COVID-19 in people who are more likely to get very sick. Your health care provider can determine options that may be best for you based on your medical history.

People who are more likely to get very sick include older adults (ages 50 years or more, with risk increasing with older age), people who are unvaccinated and people with certain medical conditions, such as a weakened immune system. Being vaccinated makes you much less likely to get very sick. Still, some vaccinated people, especially those who have other risk factors for severe disease, may benefit from treatment if they get COVID-19.

Medications to treat COVID-19 must be started as soon as possible after diagnosis to be effective. Contact a healthcare provider right away to determine if you are eligible for treatment, even if your symptoms are mild.
