I've also added instructions on how to get an additional 8 free tests from Walgreens.
Every home in the U.S. is now eligible to request four free at-home COVID-19 tests from the federal government!
The easy signup form is hosted with the USPS. There's no shipping or payment required and you also don't need health insurance to get these four free tests.
- Limit of one order per residential address.
- Your order of 4 tests will come in a single package with its own tracking number
- Orders will ship free starting in mid-December.
If you can't signup online, then you can call 1-800-232-0233 to order your free tests.
These at-home tests are useful because they provide results in only 30 minutes without needing to send your swab to a testing lab. Each test comes with full instructions on testing and reading the results.
Most orders will ship within 7-12 days, so be sure to order them soon! The site was getting hammered yesterday, but it's been up and running perfectly all day today.
Free COVID-19 Tests with Health Insurance
As of January 15, 2022, those with health insurance can get up to 8 free covid-19 tests each month.
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. The reimbursement rate is up to $12 per individual test, which is $96 per month.

You can also go straight to online retailers, like Walgreens right here, to get your free tests.
