How do I find & use an at-home COVID-19 test kit?

Kansans can test for COVID-19 using an at-home rapid test kit. There are several ways to get this type of test:

  • All households in the U.S. are eligible to order 4 free at-home test kits from the federal government by visiting or by calling 1-800-232-0233. Kits typically ship within 7-12 days.

  • At-home rapid tests can be purchased over the counter at a pharmacy. For Kansans with a health insurance plan, these tests can be purchased at no cost or reimbursed through your health plan as of January 15, 2022. Check with your health plan for details and keep your receipt to submit a claim to your insurance company for reimbursement. For Medicare, Medicaid and CHIP beneficiaries, check with your plan or state agency for information. 

  • At-home tests may be available through federally-supported health centers, Volunteer Testing Partners, and other organizations in your community.
