Do I need a test?
I am having symptoms
If you are having symptoms consistent with COVID-19, you should self isolate until you can be tested. Currently, our patients with symptoms have the highest positivity rate.
I have been directly exposed
If you have been in direct contact with a person known to have COVID-19, the chance of you becoming positive is roughly 20% (per our individual surveys). The best time to be tested is the fifth thru seventh day after exposure. You should also get tested if you start to experience symptoms.
I was around someone that was around someone that was positive:
This is one of the more common questions we are asked. Our surveys show this to be a low-risk situation and we do not routinely recommend getting tested unless you start to have symptoms or someone you were in direct contact with test positive. You should continue to take general social distancing precautions and wear a mask when in public.
I am going to visit a relative or a person who is at high risk
Since there are a fair number of people who carry the virus without symptoms, we do recommend getting a test done if you are entering a new situation where you will be around people considered to be at high risk. In this case, it is better to be safe than sorry.
I need to be cleared (travel, school, employer, etc)
Our FIA rapid test can be used to clear you to travel, go back to school, or to go back to work. If you are specifically required to have a PCR test, you should contact your primary care provider at least two weeks prior to the date you need to be cleared.
Will my insurance cover the rapid COVID test?
We do not file with any insurance company.
How long does it take to get results?
We use a rapid COVID-19 processor. It takes less than 20 minutes for the machine to run your test; however, due to the number of tests we are running, it can take up to a few hours to get your results.
What if I need a second test?
We understand there are situations where a second test is required. We charge $100 for repeat test to be performed if done within 14-days of your first test. Contact our office to schedule a repeat test.
Do you provide any treatment for a positive test?
There is currently no FDA approved outpatient treatment for COVID-19. The majority of positive patients will have mild to moderate symptoms that can be controlled using over the counter medications. However, if you have progressing symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath, or chest pain, we recommend you contact your primary care provider or go to an emergency room for specific treatment options. We have created a general guidelines page for our patients you are welcome to look over.
When you are diagnosed as having COVID-19, you should take precautions not to spread the virus to others. We recommend you read the CDC guidelines for specific details. We have also created a summary page for our patients you can use for general information. All specific questions should be directed to your primary care provider.
How are my results documented?
We will provide you with an official report showing your COVID-19 results. Most employers and travel agencies are accepting this report as proof of your current status. You should double-check that our Rapid COVID-19 testing system is an approved option for your specific situation.
