FAQ For Rapid Antigen COVID Testing
What Kind of Rapid Test is Your Test?
Does Insurance cover testing?
News announcements about the CARE program from the federal government have stated that Private insurance, Medicare, and Tricare will cover the cost of testing with no copay and no deductible. For those with private Insurance, Medicare, and Tricare, we will bill your COVID testing visit(s) directly to your insurance. We will not collect any amount for a co-pay or deductible at the time of your visit. That said, we suggest you call your insurance company (their number can be found at the back of your insurance card) to verify what your specific plan coverage will be for the testing. They will tell you what your plan will cover and what could be your responsibility.
