  • The state’s telehealth test-to-treat program helps provide free, easy access to care and treatments (COVID-19 medications) and medication delivery that reduce the risk of serious illness or hospitalization.
  • The program is free, so there is no cost for the patient.
  • Don’t delay. COVID-19 medications need to be started in the first 5 days of symptoms.
