Who does Care on Location’s Test to Treat program cover?
Because of state medical practice laws, our program is only available to people who are physically in Colorado at the time of the evaluation.
Can I use my insurance?
We confirm your insurance eligibility.
Often insurance is covering COVID-19 related appointments 100% but we may need to collect a form of payment in case we cannot confirm your insurance eligibility or you have a deductible. If the visit is covered when we submit to insurance, we will refund any payment we collected at time of visit.
What insurances do you take?
Colorado Medicaid, BCBS, Anthem, Aetna, Cigna, United Healthcare,Tricare Medicare Part B and United Healthcare/AARP Medical Advantage, Anthem Medicare Advantage, and Aetna Medicare Advantage plans.
We do not accept other state (not Colorado) Medicaid, VA insurance, Bright Health, Cigna Medicare Advantage, or Humana Medicare Advantage plans.
What if I don't have insurance?
You do not need insurance to use Care On Location. Visits are $69.99 if you do not have insurance.
What Oral Antivirals are Available?
Right now, oral antivirals (Paxlovid and molnupiravir) are authorized for people who:
Health insurance is not required to receive treatment at a Test to Treat location. Oral antivirals are free. However, there may be other costs associated with this visit, like administration or appointment fees. Coloradans with health insurance may use it to cover these costs. Coloradans without insurance should apply for Health First Colorado (Colorado's Medicaid program). Health First Colorado covers COVID-19 testing and treatments for those who qualify.
- Are aged 12 years and older for Pfizer’s Paxlovid or aged 18 years and older for Merck’s Lagevrio (molnupiravir), and
- Have tested positive for COVID-19, and
- Have had symptoms for less than five days, and
- Are at high risk of becoming seriously ill. People at at high risk of becoming seriously ill from COVID-19 include:
- People who are aged 65 years and older.
- People who are obese or overweight. This includes adults with a BMI of 25 or more. It also includes children under age 18 years old whose providers determine they meet the criteria.

What do I need to be seen for COVID-19?
We ARE universally accepting self proctored tests as an organization.
To access treatment, you will need a positive COVID-19 test result. You can take a rapid at-home test before your appointment, submit the results of a laboratory test, or take a rapid at-home test proctored by a Care on Location telehealth provider.
We will need to see the positive test and prefer to have the patient take the test in front of us, but at the same time, we understand they probably searched for treatment only after they tested positive.
What are the treatments for COVID-19 and what might increase my risk for complications?
COVID-19 treatments, including monoclonal antibody therapy and antivirals, can help prevent severe illness for some people who get infected with COVID-19 and are not hospitalized, but have one or more risk factors for progression to severe disease. Risk factors include certain medical conditions, including being overweight or obese, and older age. Additionally, risk factors can include social and environmental conditions called social determinants of health; these are not the result of individual choices, but historical barriers like systemic racism and discrimination. Providers should evaluate all people who test positive for COVID-19 for treatment.
