COVID-19 Telehealth Program
The State of Minnesota in partnership with Cue Health has a free telehealth test-to-treat program to help ensure Minnesotans have easy access to care and treatments (COVID-19 medications) and medication delivery that reduce their risk of serious illness or hospitalization. For more information on how to access this program, please visit Cue Health: COVID-19 Treatment in MN.
People in Minnesota who test positive or who have symptoms and had close contact with someone who has COVID-19 can download the Cue Health app, use the Cue Health website, or call 1-844-609-2415 to talk with a licensed clinician who will evaluate them to determine if treatment is a good option. If they are a good candidate for a medication, the clinician can send the prescription to the patient’s local pharmacy of choice. In some geographic areas, those prescription medications can also be delivered for free to the patient’s home address.
Important things to know:
- This service is free and available from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. (CST), seven days a week.
- Health insurance is NOT required to receive treatment.
- This program is available to all people currently in Minnesota, regardless of residency or citizenship status. A state ID is NOT required.
- There are three ways to access the telehealth program: calling in via a telephone, using the smartphone app, or through the website. All three options offer the same level of service, so people are encouraged to choose the option that is easiest for them.
- For assistance in languages other than English, including ASL, Hmong, Somali, and Spanish, use the telephone number (1-844-609-2415) to call in for assistance.
- People should seek COVID-19 Medications within the first five days of their symptoms, even if they are mild.
- COVID-19 medication may not be right for everyone, so that is what the clinician will help determine when you talk to them.
- This program works with all COVID-19 test results, including rapid at-home tests or test results from a lab. For more information on where to access COVID-19 tests, visit the MDH COVID-19 Testing website.
