Minnesota Free Test to Treat Program – Minnesotans who test positive for COVID-19 with a positive test taken at their home or at a lab, can download the Cue Health app, sign up with their Minnesota address and have a virtual consultation with a licensed healthcare provider who will evaluate and determine treatment options available to you. If you are a candidate for treatment, the provider will issue a prescription to a local pharmacy, and in some areas of the state, the prescription can be delivered to your home.

Insurance Coverage for over-the-counter COVID-19 tests: Starting January 15, 2022, most people with a health plan can go online, or to a pharmacy or store to purchase an at-home over-the-counter COVID-19 diagnostic test authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) at no cost, either through reimbursement or free of charge through their insurance. This applies whether you purchased your health plan on your own or whether you get health insurance through your job.  The test will either be free directly at the point of sale, if your health plan provides for direct coverage, or by reimbursement if you are charged for your test. Be sure to keep your receipt if you need to submit a claim to your insurance company for reimbursement. If your plan has set up a network of preferred providers at which you can obtain a test with no out-of-pocket expense, you can still obtain tests from other retailers outside that network. Insurance companies are required to reimburse you at a rate of up to $12 per individual test (or the cost of the test, if less than $12).
