The “Test to Treat” Initiative (Available in All States)

We are pleased to support the Biden Administration’s “Test to Treat” initiative for patients exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 in all states. In order to provide a prescription for COVID-19 therapeutics, patients must have a positive COVID-19 test and provide the brand of test used. Our medical professionals may administer and observe a COVID-19 test via an in-person appointment at a clinic location, or our eligible practitioners may observe a patient-administered test through our Virtual Care services if applicable. Following a positive test and if otherwise clinically appropriate at The Little Clinic, patients will receive their antiviral prescription which may be filled at any participating pharmacy. Our pharmacies are all participating in dispensing the therapeutics.

To schedule an in-person appointment for a COVID-19 test at The Little Clinic, please visit our scheduler page and select “COVID Viral Test (Test Active Infection)” as the reason for your visit.

To schedule a Virtual Visit with a healthcare provider to observe a self-administered COVID-19 test over video chat, please visit our scheduler page and select “COVID Virtual Visit” as the reason for your visit.

COVID-19 Antiviral Therapeutic Medicine

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued an emergency use authorization (EUA) for antiviral medications by Pfizer and Merck for the treatment of COVID-19 infection. We have received COVID-19 therapeutics in all of our pharmacy locations.

If you have a prescription for a COVID-19 therapeutic, please present it to the pharmacy team and, where possible, use the drive thru or walk-up window.

While these oral medications have been shown to be effective in reducing hospitalization and death, vaccines remain the most effective tool we have for preventing severe illness. Vaccines are conveniently available in all locations. If you have yet to receive your COVID-19 vaccine, make an appointment today.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    This medication must be started within 3-5 days of symptoms onset and will require testing by a prescriber to receive a prescription. Once a valid prescription is written, patients can take it to select pharmacies. Since current supply is limited, having a valid prescription does not guarantee the product will be at your local pharmacy.

    While the medication is to be provided at no charge to the patient, the testing, diagnoses, and prescribing steps fall under traditional care services, through our clinics or other providers. Patients may need to pay for those visits or provide necessary insurance information to cover the visit. Pharmacies will bill your insurance plan for the handling and distribution of the medication. If you do not have insurance, you will not be charged for the therapeutic medication.

    Pharmacies cannot order this medication. Participating pharmacies are automatically sent a predetermined amount of medication when product is available. If your pharmacy doesn’t carry the medication, visit the Department of Health and Human Services website to find the closest location.

    Our pharmacy team can dispense at least one of the antiviral medications (Merck or Pfizer) with any valid prescription from any licensed provider.

    Select pharmacies are not allowed to put this medication on hold for patients with valid prescriptions. It’s best to go to the pharmacy drive thru or walk up window directly after your appointment as medication will be distributed on a first come first serve basis.

    Please visit the manufacturers’ websites for details on each medication:
