Free COVID-19 Testing Program for NYC ACFs and Nursing Homes
New York City (NYC) nursing home and adult care facility (ACF) members are reminded that the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) has made available a free COVID-19 testing program for providers located within NYC. The testing is available for residents and staff. Below is information about each of the programs, what is involved, and how to access the resources. Please note that the program for ACFs differs slightly from the nursing home program, and it has been recently updated. Notably, the Agency Chief Contracting Officer (ACCO) has approved to add combination testing for SARS-CoV-2 and influenza to the program.
Members are encouraged to enroll now, even if you do not have an immediate need, to ensure quick access if the resource is needed in the future.
