Covid test kits have been in short supply in the U.S. and scammers are taking advantage, according to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), which issued an alert recently about bogus kits being sold to consumers online.

“Using these fake products isn’t just a waste of money, it increases your risk of unknowingly spreading COVID-19 or not getting the appropriate treatment.”

Do you want to access a COVID-19 test but have been told there is a cost?

Beginning on January 15, 2022, individuals with private health insurance coverage or covered by a group health plan who purchase an over-the-counter COVID-19 diagnostic test authorized, cleared, or approved by the FDA will be able to have those test costs covered by their plan or insurance.

Insurance companies and health plans are required to cover 8 free over-the-counter at-home tests per covered individual per month.
State Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) programs are currently required to cover FDA-authorized at-home COVID-19 tests without cost-sharing.

What is I AM?

The Centers for Independent Living in Maryland are collaborating on a weekly live stream. The stream, which can be watched live via Zoom or viewed later on YouTube, will feature speakers on the current issues that most interest the disability community, families, and service providers.

We will hear from disability leaders, public officials, and most importantly—you, our community, and listeners. The show will educate the public about the capacities of people with disabilities through the message of I AM: I AM independent. I AM safe. I AM prepared. I AM in charge. Topics may include food resources, transportation concerns, and how the rules of re-opening the economy affect the community.

Independence Amplified Maryland is your opportunity to know what’s going on in the world of disability and take control of your future.

Please register below for the call information and the opportunity to let us know if you have accessibility accommodations!
