The federal government has offered a new way to combat the spread of the virus: providing free Covid testing kits and N95 masks. But how accessible are they, and how can we get them?

Since Jan. 15, insurers have been required to cover the cost of at-home Covid tests bought both online and in person. Whether you have health insurance through your job or if you pay for it directly, you can now walk directly into a pharmacy, or place an order online, and get an FDA-approved at-home Covid test for free. Either that, or you can keep the receipt and your insurance company will reimburse you.

Providers are required to pay you back at a rate of up to $12 per individual test or the cost of the test, if it is less than $12. The new program covers up to eight at-home tests per month.
