Health care providers who treat uninsured or underinsured patients with commercially procured bebtelovimab, a COVID-19 monoclonal antibody therapy for outpatients at high risk for hospitalization, may be eligible for free replacement doses from the Department of Health and Human Services. HHS plans to make 60,000 doses of the product available to providers under the initiative. Anticipating depletion of the federal government’s supply, HHS last month transitioned to commercial distribution of the therapy.
