COVID-19 NASAL SWAB WITH RESULT IN 15 MINUTES!!!. If you experience any of the following symptoms: fever, diarrhea, loss of taste/smell, body ache/fatigue, malaise, sore throat, cough, or shortness of breath or you are >65 years of age. Or have Diabetes, COPD, Smoking, Asthma, Hypertension, or a depressed immune system, please schedule a telemedicine call with our provider for COVID-19 testing. We accept orders from your doctors as well.
The FDA has granted Emergency Use Authorization to the manufacturing lab we have ordered our test through.
ANTI-BODY TESTING!!! The antibody test shows if you had a past infection of COVID 19 and have recovered within the last 2 weeks. Results are available in 2-10 minutes and performed on site. Because antibody testing is not 100% accurate the FDA still recommends social distancing/stay at home guidelines. If your test is positive, we are required to also follow it up with a nasal swab test since the antibody test can give a positive result on more than just COVID-19 (other corona virus examples that could cause positive result are Influenza and RSV). Broad antibody testing could give the U.S. a better picture of how many people have already been infected and who may have immunity. For additional information on why widespread testing is being used see the attached link for the FDA's website: https://www.fda.gov/news-events/press-announcements/coronavirus-covid-19-update-serological-test-validation-and-education-efforts. We are working on trying to get approved antibody testing, please check back with us if you are wanting this option.
Even if you DO NOT have insurance, but experience ANY of the above symptoms, our clinic currently offers FREE virtual visits and FREE TESTING. FREE only for the un-insured through the Care Act, we will need a DL or SSN to be able to submit your info to the Care Act and they will have to approve you as uninsured before we can be reimbursed for these, please note it is FRAUD to state you have no insurance and need assistance through this program if you do currently have active insurance coverage. Our goal is trying to identify those with mild/no symptoms, encourage social distancing, and protect those that are most vulnerable to this deadly virus in this pandemic.
Many major insurance companies will waive co-pay until 07/31/2020 for any COVID-19 screening and testing. To encourage social distancing, a few insurance companies also waive co-pay for NON-COVID 19 telemedicine/virtual visit as well.
