COVID-19 Rapid Tests

Advanced Urgent Care & Occupational Medicine in Colorado and Rapid Testing have teamed up to provide COVID-19 antigen and molecular (NAAT) rapid tests through our clinics.  The benefits of testing are:

  • No Telehealth Visit
  • Same-Day Appointments
  • Same-Day Results
  • Testing is Open to Everyone, Whether You Show Symptoms or Not
  • Testing for Travel (Click to learn more)

Are the rapid tests covered by insurance? No and this due to rapid COVID tests not being recognized as a medically necessary service. Therefore, these services are not paid by insurance companies, which can result in a costly patient bill. Rapid Testing offers rapid COVID tests at an affordable out-of-pocket cost.

The antigen rapid COVID test is $95. Payment due at time of service: cash or credit card. Typically used if you have COVID symptoms or have been exposed. Curbside testing is available at all 9 of our clinics 7 days a week, 8 am to 7 pm.

The Abbott ID NOW molecular rapid test is $125. Payment due at time of service: cash or credit card. This is an NAAT test (nucleic acid amplification test) typically used for travel. Curbside testing is available 7 days a week, 8 am to 7 pm, at the following clinics:

  • Broomfield
  • Centennial – Southglenn
  • Denver – Central Park
  • Westminster – Federal
  • Westminster – Wadsworth

When scheduling, please select consent to text or email. This will ensure you receive your results when they are ready.

If a letter or doctor’s note is needed in addition to test results, a telehealth visit is required.

What are the COVID-19 Rapid Tests?

The COVID-19 antigen rapid test is a Sofia Antigen test that is manufactured by the Quidel Corporation. This test is a nasal swab. According to the FDA, the antigen rapid test COVID detects the virus by looking for proteins from the virus. This test is a highly specific test, but less sensitive than the molecular tests.

The Abbott ID NOW molecular rapid COVID test is a nasal swab test. According to Abbott, this molecular test uses “isothermal technology, proprietary enzymes, and constant temperature control to achieve the fastest available RNA amplification.” In general, molecular tests detect the virus by looking for genetic material from the virus. This type of test is highly sensitive and highly specific. This test is also known as an NAAT test (nucleic acid amplification test). Similar to the rapid PCR test, our Abbott ID NOW is an NAAT-approved test that is widely accepted by airlines that require an NAAT test.

If your test is for travel, please verify with your destination of travel which test(s) are accepted for your travel itinerary.  Every country and state has different requirements. ​We apologize, but Rapid Testing and Advanced Urgent Care & Occupational Medicine are not responsible if the ​incorrect test is ordered​.​

COVID-19 Services Provided by Advanced Urgent Care & Occupational Medicine

Looking for same-day COVID testing? Rapid Testing is providing curbside rapid testing through our clinics. Schedule an appointment online for curbside testing today!

Advanced Urgent Care & Occupational Medicine provides the lab-based RT-PCR test. A telehealth visit is required for this test, but the visit and test are generally covered by insurance. We also offer the following services:

If you have questions, please visit our FAQ page.

COVID-19 Treatment with Medical Visit

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.

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 call us at 303-558-0509 to schedule.
