March 16, 2022

This article is for all providers caring for our members

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

Oral therapy

  • Molnupiravir
  • Paxlovid

Monoclonal antibodies and antiviral infusion

  • Bebtelovimab
  • Remdesivir
  • Sotrovimab
These FDA-authorized treatment options are available for individuals 12 and over who are at higher risk for severe COVID-19 illness.

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.

  • Oral antivirals are available at select CVS and Walgreens retail pharmacies. Patients can find treatment here: MA COVID-19 Therapeutic Locator.
