First, book a Video Visit (Telemedicine) with any of our Drs. to find out whether you need a COVID-19 and/or other tests, before taking one.
Secondly, take a drive-thru testing at selected locations mentioned below, while staying in your car during the whole procedure.
For all the mentioned locations, there is 1 (one) drive-by time-window per day; see the schedules for each testing site below.
Take into consideration that BEFORE THE TEST, YOU NEED TELEMEDICINE APPOINTMENT WITH ANY OF OUR DOCTORS.
WHAT IS COVID-19 TEST?
SARS-COV-2 PCR (COVID-19) test is a procedure aimed at finding any evidence of the virus (Covid-19), by using Nucleic Acid Amplification (NAA) technology.
This test allows us to detect even minuscule amounts of the virus. The technology is estimated by different groups that due to sample collection limitations up to 30% of the cases will be still missed (false negative).
HOW IS THE TESTING CARRIED OUT?
The testing is carried out via a nasopharyngeal (NP) swab that includes sample collection from the patient’s nose. The test, along with other possible tests ordered by your doctor, is a drive-thru procedure, that is implemented by our staff, right in a parking lot, to minimize potential contacts.
WHEN WILL THE RESULTS BE READY?
The COVID-19 test takes about 1-3 business days, to come back. We ask you not to call our office for results, as we will contact you right away when the results are ready.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? WILL INSURANCE PAY FOR IT?
The price for COVID-related video-visits (Telemedicine) and our Self-Pay remains $125, the 100% of which is covered by all insurances if they are accepted by AllCare, as part of the national emergency plan.
