As of May 11, the COVID-19 pandemic will no longer be considered a national or public health emergency in the U.S., which may signify the end of the government’s at-home test program, in which residents can periodically order free test kits. As of now, these programs are still up and running—so you can stock up on free at-home COVID-19 tests. Each U.S. household can currently get four tests for free from the federal government, and Medicare and private insurance plans reimburse the costs of up to eight at-home tests per insured person per month. Between the two options, insured individuals could receive more than two dozen free tests between now and May 11. Visit covid.gov to learn more.
