Free RAT program for eligible Victorians with disability extended

Close up of taking sample for coronavirus testing

The free rapid antigen tests program for eligible Victorians with disability has been extended to 30 September 2022.

Early detection of COVID-19 helps protect people from serious illness by ensuring earlier diagnosis and treatment.

Until 30 September, Victorian NDIS participants, disability support pensioners or people with disability who receive a TAC benefit can access up to 20 free rapid antigen tests by visiting their local state-run testing site. Carers can also pick up tests on behalf of someone with disability.

Only state-run testing sites are providing free rapid antigen tests to people with disability.

If you are unable to attend a site, contact a Disability Liaison Officer for assistance.

If you have any questions about rapid antigen testing, please call the 24/7 Coronavirus hotline on 1800 675 398.
