Treating COVID-19

The Illinois Dept. of Health (IDH) continues to encourage providers to assess patients quickly of the onset of COVID-19 symptoms to determine if they are eligible for one of four available treatments. The IDH asks providers to refer to the NIH Clinical Decision Aid, PDF

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines recommends ritonavir-boosted nirmatrelvir (Paxlovid), as the preferred treatment for most high-risk, non-hospitalized patients with mild to moderate COVID-19.

You can send prescriptions to federal pharmacy partners and community pharmacies, all of which are listed in the COVID-19 Therapeutic Locator.

The IDH provided the following resources for providers:

COVID-19 Therapeutic Locator

COVID-19 treatment guidelines

IDPH Outpatient Therapy locator (to find doses of COVID-19 treatment in your area)

IDPH Therapy Matchmaker (when you only need to find a small number of doses)

Submit all therapeutics orders in the HPoP. Existing providers need to access their account and “Create order.” New therapeutics providers can submit a registration request through the New Provider Site Registration Form
