FREE N95 MASKS

According to GoodRx Health (Where can you get your free N95 mask?), “you can pick up your free masks at many of the same grocery store and pharmacy chains that provide free COVID-19 vaccines. The U.S. government is using the same network of 21 partners — called the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program (FRPP)  — to distribute masks to the public. It’s also sending masks to some community health centers.”

Over the counter COVID-19 tests 

“An added boost for COVID-19 testing came on January 15, 2022, when the Biden Administration mandated that health insurers must cover over-the-counter at-home tests without requiring an order from a healthcare provider. 

According to the Marin County COVID-19 Status Update:  January 25, 2022:

Federal law now requires health insurers to:  

  • Cover up to eight FDA-approved or authorized over the counter at-home tests for each insured person each month.  
  • Cover over-the-counter tests without a provider’s order, without any cost sharing requirements (deductibles, co-payments or coinsurance), without prior authorization.  
  • Note: Insurers may require you pay up-front and submit a claim for reimbursement) 
  • Cover over the counter tests bought from in-network pharmacies and direct shipping 
  • Note: If no up-front payment is required, reimbursement is limited to $12 per test. If up-front payment is required, full cost will be reimbursed.”
