COVID-19 Treatments

Vaccination is still the best way to prevent COVID-19, but there are also effective medicines to treat COVID-19. Treatment works best when it's given within the first few days of someone's illness. Get tested right away if you have symptoms of COVID-19 so you can qualify for treatments which have been shown to prevent hospitalization and death from COVID-19. If you test positive for COVID-19, talk to a doctor or healthcare provider about treatments that may work best for you. If you do not have a healthcare provider call the Utah COVID-19 info line 385-273-7878 or text 385-270-8877 (Mon-Fri, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.) for help locating treatment.

If you don’t have insurance you may be eligible for the COVID-19 Uninsured Coverage regardless of your income or assets. To qualify, you must be uninsured and meet citizenship and Utah residency requirements.  You can’t be enrolled in another federal healthcare program like Medicare or Veterans Health Administration coverage, or a commercial group or individual health plan.

  • Apply online for COVID-19 Uninsured Coverage. 
  • A representative from the Utah Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) will determine if you are eligible for this coverage. A decision will be made in 2 or 3 business days. You will be notified of the decision, even if you don’t qualify for the coverage.  
  • If you’re approved, coverage begins on the first day of the application month. You will receive a Medicaid card within a few days of the approval.
