Have you tested positive for COVID-19? Color is partnering with public health departments to offer a free telehealth visit and antiviral prescription, if eligible. If the doctor prescribes antiviral treatment, you can pick it up at a nearby pharmacy or have it delivered to your home.
It’s free, easy, fast, and online.
Color offers these programs on behalf of public health departments who want to provide free access to COVID-19 treatment to residents.

A physical address in the state of the program.
Eligibility is limited to persons whose current address is in the state where the program is offered.
Clinicians will be evaluating whether a patient should be given a prescription for a specific COVID-19 oral antiviral treatment. If you are interested in other treatment options for COVID-19, please seek care from your healthcare provider as other options are not available through this program at this time.
You will be asked to select pick-up at a pharmacy or home delivery.
We will provide a list of pharmacies with available supply for you to select. If eligible, the clinician will send your prescription to your chosen pharmacy.
We also offer the option to have the prescription delivered to your home. You can select home delivery as an option and enter your shipping address. You will receive notifications on shipping progress from Color. Your prescription will be delivered in 1-2 business days.
This oral antiviral treatment is intended for those with mild to moderate COVID-19 who are at high-risk for progression to severe COVID-19, and who are within 5 days of symptom onset.
People who have had symptoms more than five days, who may be pregnant, or who are not at high risk for severe illness (based on age or medical history), may not be eligible for this treatment through this program.
A consultation for COVID-19 antiviral treatment is currently only available through Color to those who are 18 or older. If you are under 18, please talk to a healthcare provider about treatment options.
Eligibility may also be restricted depending on your Color program sponsor’s terms. Eligibility through Color’s partnership with Massachusetts is limited to persons whose current address is in Massachusetts and pharmacy products are only shipped to valid addresses in Massachusetts.
No. The Color services, including clinical consultation and mail order pharmacy service, are made available at no cost to you. The cost of this antiviral treatment is currently covered by the federal government (subject to change).
If you choose to use a local pharmacy, you are responsible if there are any associated costs.
Filling out the survey to determine whether you are eligible to speak to a clinician about this antiviral treatment should take you about 5 minutes. If treatment may be appropriate for you, your clinician will join the call in 5–30 minutes to complete the evaluation (within standard business hours of 8 AM to 10 PM EST, 7 days a week).
A clinician will wait up to 10 minutes for you to join the video call. If the clinician cannot complete a video call with you, they will not be able to complete your evaluation. If you miss a consultation, please request another one.
