Baystate Health provides both intravenous antiviral and monoclonal antibody treatments for COVID-19.
At this time, the recommended treatment for mild to moderate COVID-19 is oral therapy/Paxlovid, which can be readily prescribed. Almost 80% of those eligible for treatment can be prescribed Paxlovid by their primary care provider and do not need a referral. Find out if you are eligible for Paxlovid.
If your patient is not eligible for Paxlovid, they may be treated with infusion. All treatments requiring infusion are done at Baystate Noble Hospital ICTU.

If you are a Baystate Health network provider, you can send a CIS message to the “COVID Outpatient Therapy” pool with the necessary patient information including the date of symptom onset, date of positive test, COVID vaccination status, and comorbidities that confer high risk for severe COVID illness.
Health insurance is not a requirement to be treated. For questions, call 413-795-0566.
