***Even if you DO NOT have insurance, but experience ANY of the above symptoms, our clinic currently offers FREE telephone 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.

***If you have insurance; but testing for COVID-19 is not a covered service and you receive a bill from our clinics and CANNOT pay this bill (due to job loss/reduced income during this pandemic, etc); please call the Billing at 866-998-1313 (also listed on the statement) from 9Am to 4Pm. Leave a message if they do not answer (on a high call volume as well). They will absolutely work with you. You may have to sign a short financial statement for us so that we can reduce your bill or write it off. As always, please call your insurance carrier first to verify coverage before testing. Self-pay price is $75***

 

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.
