Rite Aid offers free COVID-19 tests to Medicare beneficiaries

​​​​​​​Medicare Part B will cover up to eight over-the-counter COVID-19 tests each month.

Beginning today, people with Medicare Part B can visit any Rite Aid location and receive up to eight over-the-counter COVID-19 tests every month at no cost.

As part of the Medicare COVID-19 Over-the-Counter Test Initiative, people covered by Medicare Part B can bring their Medicare card to any Rite Aid location to receive their no-cost tests. Beneficiaries can get up to eight free, over-the-counter tests, or Flow Flex tests, per calendar month through the end of the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Rite Aid customers with Medicare Part B also may access their free, over-the-counter COVID-19 tests online here. Medicare beneficiaries can request their tests online using Rite Aid's ordering tool, which will be processed by Rite Aid and then available for pickup at their local store. Rite Aid pharmacists also will have tests available for anyone who presents their card in store.

“Rite Aid has been a vital resource throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, offering the necessary tools to keep our communities healthy, such as N95 masks, PCR and at-home COVID tests, and life-saving vaccines,” Heyward Donigan, president and chief pharmacy officer at Rite Aid, said. “We are committed to continuing to support our local communities and are proud to participate in this important initiative for Medicare Part B beneficiaries.”
