Health care — including needed coronavirus testing — should be affordable for all Californians.

If you have COVID-19 symptoms or think you were exposed to it, testing is free for you. In all other circumstances, you may have a co-pay.

Medicare and Medicare Advantage Plans provide free COVID-19 diagnostic and antibody tests. Needed COVID-19 diagnosis, testing, and treatment for the uninsured is paid for by the government

If you don’t have or recently lost health care coverage, you can get covered. See the Health Care Coverage Options Factsheet (PDF) to find out how.

Local community health centers are also available for the uninsured. These centers provide comprehensive primary and preventive services for underserved and vulnerable populations.
