As of March 22nd the federal government ran out of funds for COVID-19 testing. Without immediate action this will result in millions of Americans loosing access to critically important testing. 

The Federal decision to not fund COVID-19 testing thru the HRSA will adversely impact the access for uninsured to receive reliable testing.

Phoenix, AZ: Embry Health has been providing COVID-19 services to different communities across Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma, Florida, New Mexico, and Washington, when communities worldwide needed a test that could result in a life-or-death situation.

We have offered over 4,000,000 tests and seen over 2,000,000 unique patients over these past two years.

Unfortunately, with the recent announcement of the HRSA program losing funding, everyone will be impacted, from medical providers to patients.

Embry Health has been forced to end free testing for uninsured patients, resulting in many of our patients being affected.

"If people do not have free COVID-19 testing available, they will not get tested, putting families and loved ones at risk. Therefore, Embry Health continues to encourage Congress to authorize additional timely funding for COVID-19 testing, treatment, and vaccinations. This funding is critical to ensure the testing and vaccine infrastructure built by labs and providers across America remains available for all patients, regardless of insurance status," said Embry CEO Raymond Embry.

To those who have been our supporters and community partners, we thank you, because of you, we made a difference together during this pandemic.

We encourage you to sign this petition to ensure that those who are not covered by insurance can continue to rely on the HRSA fund to cover claims submited for uninsured patients who still need to be able to have access to free COVID-19 testing.
