The US now has a *plan* for providing free at-home rapid Covid test: people pick vendor from central list, order, deliver, and reimburse via health insurance.

Meanwhile, in the UK, a simpler program has been up and running for well over a year where you simply click twice online and you get a test kit mailed to anywhere in the country (no account, no name, no questions). Uses private vendors transparently. The tests can also be collected or in-person "while you wait".

@timo as you might expect, the reimburse part is the worst. Not only are you making people pay full price out of pocket for access, but reimbursement is notoriously slow in this industry (month+).

@timo I didn't rtfa, so I might be repeating things ;)
