How to get a Coronavirus test?

We offer walk-up testing by appointment after you book it on our website. If you have COVID-19 symptoms and are concerned about your health, here are the steps you should take:

         

 

Step 1: Click on Book an appointment to set up an appointment. You are required to fill the form on there before you can be tested.

Step 2: You will receive a phone call to finalize your booking. 

What tests do we offer

We offer the PCR (Polymerase chain reaction) lab test and the Sofia 2 Flu + SARS Antigen FIA.

Patients are able to take both tests at the same time. However, per CDC guidelines if you take the rapid test, you are required a PCR as well. Only the PCR test can be taken by itself. This is done in order to assure the accuracy of testing.

Is walk up coronavirus testing free?

Yes, COVID-19 testing is free for all individuals with or without insurance. The Families First Coronavirus Response Act requires private and federal insurance to pay for FDA-approved testing with no cost-sharing. 

 

The visit is covered by your insurance, if we accept your insurance. Uninsured patients will be seen at No Cost. If you have insurance you are required to use it.  Failure to provide insurance while having one will result in you receiving a bill in the future. Self pay for insurances we do not accept will remain $125 for PCR lab test and $160 for a rapid test. Below are a list of insurances we do not accept:

  • Kaiser Permanente

  • Tricare 

  • Out of state Medicaid

  • Medstar

How long does it take to get the results of a COVID-19 test?

It can take up to 3-5 days to get the results for the PCR test (via LabCorp/Quest lab). The rapid on the other hand, will come in same day.

 

You will be contacted with your result only if you are positive. You can access your results on the patient portals of the respective labs you have been tested with.  Be sure to ask which lab to check your results on after testing.
