As part of the Medicare COVID-19 Over-the-Counter Test Initiative, people covered by Medicare Part B can bring their red, white, and blue Medicare card to any Rite Aid location to receive their no cost tests. Beneficiaries can get up to eight free, over-the-counter tests, or Flow Flex tests, per calendar month through the end of the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE).

“Rite Aid has been a vital resource throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, offering the necessary tools to keep our communities healthy, such as N95 masks, PCR and at-home COVID tests, and life-saving vaccines,” said Heyward Donigan, president and chief pharmacy officer at Rite Aid. “We are committed to continuing to support our local communities and are proud to participate in this important initiative for Medicare Part B beneficiaries.”

Rite Aid customers with Medicare Part B can also access their free, over-the-counter COVID-19 tests online at www.riteaid.com/pharmacy/services/covid-19-testing. Medicare beneficiaries can request their tests online, using our ordering tool, which will be processed by Rite Aid and then available for pick-up at their local store. Rite Aid pharmacists will also have tests available for anyone who presents their card in-store.

Other pharmacies offering free tests include Albertsons, Costco, CVS, Food Lion, Giant Food, The Giant Company, Hannaford, H-E-B Pharmacy, Hy-Vee, Kroger Family, Shop & Stop, Walgreens and Walmart.
