Our emergency facilities currently offer COVID-19 testing for patients who present with certain risk factors and symptoms. Testing is done in conjunction with treatment of coronavirus symptoms during an emergency room visit. Our in-house rapid antigen test is billed to insurance plans at $200. Many plans are required to cover testing and treatment at no cost to the patient. Likewise, our facilities waive out-of-pocket amounts for insured patients who receive testing and treatment for COVID-19. We have a range of cash rates for uninsured patients who need COVID-19 testing and treatment, as these patients often qualify for different levels of financial assistance. We also offer molecular (PCR) testing options. With molecular testing, the samples are collected by staff during the patient’s visit. We then work with outside laboratories to process the molecular tests. The outside laboratories set their own prices and bill separately for these services. As always, our emergency facilities provide full disclosure of anticipated out-of-pocket costs for testing and treatment during your visit.
