Increasing Community Access to Testing (ICATT) for COVID-19
The ICATT program will continue to provide no-cost COVID-19 testing for uninsured people that are symptomatic or exposed. More than 19,000 ICATT sites will offer no-cost COVID-19 vaccines under the CDC Bridge Access program to adults without health insurance and adults without full vaccine insurance coverage. An estimated 10,000 ICATT sites continue to support testing and disease surveillance needs at non-emergency levels. A list of no-cost COVID-19 testing sites can be found on the COVID-19 Testing Locator website. To find a no-cost COVID-19 vaccine near you please visit vaccines.gov.
CDC has modified existing ICATT testing contracts with CVS Health, Walgreens, and eTrueNorth to include no-cost COVID-19 vaccines for the uninsured and underinsured. The CDC Bridge Access Program is providing updated COVID-19 vaccines to adults without health insurance and adults without full vaccine insurance coverage. No-cost COVID-19 vaccines through this program will be available until December 31, 2024. Many of the more than 19,000 sites that are offering no-cost vaccines are also offering no-cost COVID-19 testing services.
The ICATT program provides access to no-cost COVID-19 testing in U.S. communities to people that are uninsured and no-cost COVID-19 vaccines to people that are underinsured and uninsured. The program also supports surge testing in state and local jurisdictions. These surge sites provide expanded community testing in response to a sudden increase in COVID-19 transmission.
In addition, people who are uninsured, rely on Medicare, Medicaid, or VA insurance, or receive care from Indian Health Services can receive free access to COVID-19 and flu testing, telehealth, and treatment through the Home Test to Treat program.
Every home in the U.S. is eligible to order an additional 4 free at-home tests beginning November 20. If you did not order 4 tests this fall, you may place two orders for a total of 8 tests. To order your tests, visit COVIDTests.gov.
