Free telehealth for COVID-19 treatment with Paxlovid

Telehealth is a quick and easy way to see if Paxlovid, a COVID-19 treatment pill, is right for you. This is a new service provided by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

 

If you tested positive for COVID-19, are at increased risk of severe disease, and have developed COVID-19 symptoms in the last 5 days, even mild ones (such as runny nose or cough).
 
Qualifying conditions that put you at higher risk for severe disease include being over age 65, a current or former smoker, cancer, diabetes, and obesity, among others.

Very easy to use – they are open to 10 pm and off consults in multiple languages – call and treatment are free.

 

Free telehealth consultations are available for eligible individuals 18 or older who are currently living in Massachusetts and insurance is not required. If you’re eligible, you’ll be connected with a clinician for a video consultation within 30 minutes. This service is available in EnglishSpanishHaitian Creole, and Portuguese. 

This service is not for medical emergencies or for individuals who are pregnant. If you are experiencing a medical emergency like having trouble breathing, please call 911. 

Before getting started, make sure you have:  

  • A list of medications or vitamins you are taking, 
  • If you have kidney disease, a copy of your lab results from the last 3 months because the dose may need to be adjusted. 

Clinicians are available every day from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. EST.
