How it will work

Step 1

Public-facing employees will apply to order tests using this Individual Enrollment Form

Step 2

Within one business day, individuals will receive a confirmation email from CDPHE which includes a link to order a test kit, free of charge, directly to their homes. 

Step 3

Upon receiving a test kit, individuals will log onto a telehealth portal and receive guided instruction by a trained representative from eMed, one of the nation’s leading digital health providers. Telehealth services are available in English and Spanish.

Users will need one internet-enabled device to conduct the test at home. Test kits contain six tests, which recipients can use to test themselves every five days. Users are eligible to order their next Binax At-Home testing kit 20 days after their previous order.

Binax At-Home is a partnership between CDPHE, Amazon, and eMed.
