The COVID-19 rapid test is a nasal swab, Sofia Antigen test. The rapid test is $95*. Currently, the test is not covered by insurance, but is emergency FDA approved. Payment is collected at the time the test is administered.

*Insurance coverage is not guaranteed especially if the test is being done for an asymptomatic patient. The COVID-19 rapid test is a brand new service for all insurances. You are welcome to submit for coverage of the test to your insurance for reimbursement. If you would like testing covered by insurance, please consider the PCR test.

What is the COVID-19 Rapid Test?

The COVID-19 rapid test is a Sofia Antigen test that is manufactured by the Quidel Corporation. This test is a nasal swab, just like the PCR test, and there are a few differences between the tests. According to the FDA, the PCR test is a molecular test that detects the virus by looking for genetic material from the virus. The rapid test is an antigen test that detects the virus by looking for proteins from the virus.

COVID-19 Services

Along with rapid testing we also offer the following services. If you have questions, please visit our FAQ page.

COVID-19 PCR Testing

Like the rapid test, the COVID-19 PCR test is a nasal swab test. The test is a molecular test and takes about 3 to 7 days to process. This test is typically covered by most major insurances. Click here to learn more.

Antibody Testing

Antibody blood tests, also called antibody tests, check your blood by looking for antibodies, which show if you had a previous infection with the virus. Antibodies are proteins that help fight off infections. Depending on when someone was infected and the timing of the test, the test may not find antibodies in someone with a current COVID-19 infection.

In addition to the antibody blood test, we highly recommend receiving the nasopharyngeal swab (COVID-19 test) to check for viral shedding, especially if you are asymptomatic. Co-testing is the best way to receive the most accurate results. If interested, please let the provider know during your virtual visit.

COVID-19 Treatment

Whether you test positive or negative, our providers are here for you until you are feeling better. To help monitor your health, we recommend checking in with us virtually every 1-2 days until you are no longer experiencing symptoms. If we suspect the development of pneumonia or other severe symptoms, antibiotics or additional medical treatment might be required. Please schedule a telehealth visit to meet with our providers. We will recommend re-testing as needed.
