The Department of Public Health (DPH) has issued a reminder to Massachusetts residents that free COVID-19 treatment options are available.* These treatments can be used to prevent severe illness and hospitalization.
There are five treatment options in Massachusetts
Monoclonal antibodies and antiviral infusion
Treatments should be considered for patients with a positive COVID-19 test who are symptomatic and who are at risk for moderate-to-severe disease progression, regardless of vaccination status. For information on patient treatment qualification, read Clinical Guidance on Therapies for COVID-19.
Supply limitations are not a barrier for treatment, according to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. Please ensure that eligible patients have access to COVID-19 therapies as soon as possible.
We encourage home infusion therapy providers to offer COVID-19 monoclonal antibody treatments and Remdesivir infusions to eligible patients in their communities.
*Anti-SARS-CoV2 monoclonal antibodies and oral antivirals are available through state-funded sites located across the Commonwealth and managed by Gothams. These state-funded infusion sites include Athol, Everett, Fall River, Holyoke, Lowell, Pittsfield, Plymouth.
