If you are covered by Medicare:
Medicare will pay for up to eight over-the-counter COVID-19 tests per month, including the Ellume tests. This includes people with Medicare Advantage plans. Call ahead to make sure your local retailer has the Ellume tests in stock. Call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) with any questions.
If you have private insurance:

Through this initiative, blind and low-vision users have been able to order Ellume COVID home tests, which are more accessible than other options. The Ellume COVID-19 home test was found by visually impaired users to be more accessible than the other at-home tests currently available. The test was not created specifically for blind users, and it is not perfectly accessible, but blind users have found that they could use this test independently.
You can order the more accessible tests for people who are blind or who have low vision online by calling the number listed above. These tests will be available for order until supplies run out. Each household is limited to one order, which includes 12 tests.
