COVID-19 Resources

Staying Safe & Well Through COVID-19

With all of the uncertainty and rapid changes surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, Walsh Duffield is here for you.

It is important for us to share with you that The New York Legislature and Department of Financial Services have been implementing emergency measures in an effort to protect insurance policyholders who have been hit with financial hardship because of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Read more about what this means to you by clicking here. 

In addition, below, we have created a bank of sharable resources that will help keep you safe and well while social distancing.

Whether it is setting up a proper remote office, or finding a productive way to ease stress – there are many tools available as we work to find our “new normal”.  View the various resources we have collected below:

Good news! Each household in the U.S. can now have four free COVID-19 at-home tests shipped directly to their home at no cost! All you need to do is visit and enter your contact information and mailing address.

The tests are rapid antigen “at-home” or “self” tests — not PCR tests which require a lab drop-off. The “at-home” or “self” tests can be taken anywhere and give results within 30 minutes.

Guard against scammers trying to steal your personal information. When ordering tests, use the official, secure government website: If you prefer to order by phone, you may call – 1-800-232-0233. Watch out for phone scammers, too. If you get a phone call requesting information so that free at-home tests can be mailed to you, hang up — it’s a scam!

Remember: Medicare pays for COVID-19 tests performed by a lab, such as PCR or antigen/rapid tests, at no cost to you when the test is ordered by your Primary Care Physician or a specialist.

If you or someone you know has questions about this program or any other Medicare- related topics, the Walsh Duffield Medicare Team is here to help.
