Care when you need it at no cost to you
Whether you need care now or want to prepare in advance for a sick day, we’re here. Enroll in our at-home COVID-19 test-to-treat program to get access to virtual care and treatment on-demand and at no cost to you.
The home test to treat program is about getting you fast, convenient, and at-home access to care and treatment for COVID-19 when you need it.
We want you to feel prepared and supported any time you start feeling sick. When you take part in this program, you can receive an eMed Test to Treat Telehealth kit™ (which includes a live proctored testing experience) to test and treat at home, get on demand telehealth visits, and receive a prescription for antiviral treatment (if medically eligible) – all in one process and at no cost to you.
We are here to break down barriers to healthcare and keep you healthy, no matter your situation.
The Home Test to Treat Program is a public health initiative and community research program implemented by eMed, and supported by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering’s RADx Tech program and the Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response.* Research for this program is conducted by the UMass Chan Medical School.
The program intends to learn more about how people use test to treat programs, if they increase access to telehealth care, and how we can improve similar programs in the future. While the program is launching with COVID-19, the learnings from this program will help inform test-to-treat programs for other diseases and health conditions as well.

The Home Test to Treat program is a public health initiative in selected communities across the United States. We are studying the program to learn more about telehealth and test-to-treat programs.
You can sign up for the Home Test to Treat program if you are feeling sick, if you recently tested positive for COVID-19, or if you are not feeling sick but want to be prepared.

Through test-to-treat programs, you can be tested for COVID-19, see a health care provider, receive a prescription for an oral antiviral treatment (if you are eligible), and have the prescription filled—all from home.
