Paxlovid Financial Assistance 

Essentia Health pharmacies no longer have Paxlovid from the federal government. The cost for Paxlovid will be submitted to your insurance. You will be responsible for copays or a share of cost, depending on your insurance. Pfizer offers financial assistance for most patients through its PAXCESS program. For quicker service at the pharmacy, you’re encouraged to enroll online before coming to the pharmacy through Paxlovid’s website. After enrolling, you’ll receive a copay assistance card to give to the pharmacy for up to $1,500 in savings. An Essentia Pharmacy team member can also help you enroll in the program once you arrive.

Coming Onsite for COVID-19 Care? Please Mask.

While masking is optional for most people in our clinics and hospitals, patients who have a recent COVID-19 exposure, cough, runny nose, sore throat or fever should mask.
