We are now providing molecular RT-PCR COVID-19 tests (Abbott ID Now).
HOW DO I GET TESTED?
You must pre-schedule a telehealth visit with one of our urgent care providers first in order to receive a COVID-19 test. After your telehealth consult, we will administer your rapid COVID-19 test on site, that day.
Please note, if you’ve had contact exposure to someone with COVID-19 and are asymptomatic, it is advised that you wait at least five days after an exposure to be tested, according to CDC guidelines. If you are symptomatic, please get tested immediately.
We offer drive-up and walk-up testing (meaning that you stay in your car in one of our designated parking spots and a staff member will come out to you) by appointment.

DOES INSURANCE COVER MY TEST?
Health Insurance typically covers any COVID-19 test that is performed on a patient presenting symptoms of the disease or deemed medically necessary by their provider. Insurance may not cover COVID-19 testing for travel, surveillance testing, or other situations when it is not considered medically necessary and ordered by a health care provider. Our self-pay rate of $175.00 will be charged only if your test is not covered by insurance.
