Colorado’s remaining 20 community testing sites will close January 15, 2023
Over the past year, Coloradans have transitioned away from relying on large community testing sites and toward testing at home with widely available rapid tests, at their health care providers, or at local retail pharmacies.
Coloradans can access free at-home tests through the federal at-home testing program, and free tests are available for pickup at distribution centers across the state. No insurance or cost is required for either program.
Insurance companies and health plans are required to cover eight free over-the-counter at-home tests per covered person per month. Coloradans without insurance can apply for Health First Colorado (Colorado's Medicaid program). Health First Colorado covers COVID-19 testing for those who qualify.
Pharmacies and testing locations participating in the Increasing Community Access to Testing (ICATT) program also offer no-cost testing, including PCR testing, for people without insurance.
