There are several resources available through state and federal programs for free COVID-19 testing and free at-home COVID-19 tests.

MassHealth Coverage

Tufts Health Together members can obtain coverage for eight different brands of over-the-counter tests through their pharmacy benefits:

  • BinaxNOW
  • FlowFlex
  • IHealth
  • Inteliswab
  • QuickVue At-home
  • On-Go
  • Carestart
  • CVS Test Kit

This benefit covers up to eight tests per month for each MassHealth member. Coverage is for tests purchased on or after January 14, 2022.

Members should visit an in-network pharmacy to purchase the tests with no upfront cost from the pharmacy counter.

There are also state and local programs in place for residents to search for and access free COVID-19 testing, including laboratory testing sites. Visit Massachusetts COVID-19 testing resources for the most up-to-date and accurate information. Your local board of health or your city or town website may have additional information.


There is a federal program to distribute at-home rapid tests to community health centers and Medicare-certified health clinics. Check with your local community health centers for more information.
