On the heels of announcing that private health insurers will soon have to reimburse Americans for at-home COVID-19 tests, President Joe Biden said on Dec. 21 that the federal government will also distribute a half-billion free at-home tests. During the president’s remarks, which come as case counts are rising due to the omicron variant, he acknowledged that “we need to do better with at-home testing,” adding that the administration will set up “websites where you can get them delivered to your home.” Biden also said the federal government will set up emergency testing sites in areas that need additional testing capacity, starting with sites in New York City.
