COVID-19 Testing - FAQ
What is the COVID-19 Test? Who should take it?
The COVID-19 Test is done by applying a nasal swab through the patient’s nose to test secretions. The test will show if you have an active infection and if you are contagious. It is open to anyone with active symptoms or who have come in contact with a possible COVID-19 patient.
What is the testing process?
First, you will have a virtual/telemedicine appointment with the physician. He will discuss your concerns and walk you through the process. Second, you will drive to our office parking lot. The entire test will be administered while sitting in your car. One of our technicians will come to you and administer the test.
How do I get my results?
Results will be available as per typical laboratory processing time - within 48 to 72 hours. One of our staff members will call you to discuss your lab results.
How much will the test cost? What if I am not insured?
The lab costs of COVID-19 testing will be covered by your insurance company. You are responsible for the co-pay and deductible for the office visit.
For uninsured patients, we will have a cash pay option with a prompt-pay price of $250. This covers the COVID-19 evaluation, testing, and all associated lab costs.
What if I have more questions for the doctor after I get my lab results?
You are welcome to set up a separate virtual appointment with the physician if you have more questions.
