NYC Urgent Care Chain: Free Tests For The Uninsured

The New York Daily News reports:

CityMD will provide free coronavirus tests to uninsured New Yorkers as part of a partnership with the city aimed at getting tens of thousands of people tested every day, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Sunday.

The urgent care company is offering testing at each of its 123 walk-in sites in the area, Hizzoner said, enabling 6,000 “PCR” swabs a day at its locations alone.

CityMD is covering the costs for those without insurance, an offer the mayor praised as “an extraordinary commitment to the people of this city.” The move puts the city “ahead of our goal” to be able to offer 20,000 tests every day by May 25, de Blasio said.
