COVID-19 Testing FAQ
How much does it cost?
Insured Patients: We are currently accepting most major insurances (including workers’ compensation). The COVID-19 nasal should be covered by your insurance. Urgent Care Visits and Online Visits will be billed through insurance*. *Payment must be collected at the time of services for copay and high deductible plans.
Uninsured/Self Pay Patients: For uninsured and self-pay patients we offer reduced pricing.
- COVID-19 Nasal Swab: $95
- IgG Antibody Blood Draw: $55
- Urgent Care Online Visit: $130
Advanced Urgent Care & Occupational Medicine does not charge or invoice self-pay patients for the COVID-19 Nasal Swab, rather patients will be billed the $95 by the lab that processes the test.
Please Note: Insurance coverage of the IgG antibody test varies.
Is the COVID-19 test free?
Advanced Urgent Care & Occupational Medicine’s COVID-19 testing is free to patients with insurance and we offer reduced pricing for self-pay patients. Although Governor Polis recently announced that testing will be free to everybody, the free testing he is referring to is only available at official government test sites.
Can I bring an order from my own doctor?
No. Unfortunately at this time we can not accept referrals from doctor’s outside of our organization. We have to have an order for the COVID-19 nasal swab from one of our providers for the test to be covered at no cost to the patient.
Do I need an appointment?
Yes, but we offer same day appointment availability! To be seen virtually by one of our providers, you must either call our screening number at (303) 558-0509 or sign up online by clicking HERE.
How long do results take to get back?
On average, results are taking 2-5 business days to be reported. However, this is not a guarantee and this timeline can be altered depending on a number of factors including but not limited to the external lab and testing supplies.
How can I get a copy of my lab results and work notes?
The best way to obtain these requested items is to sign up through our patient portal. As a second but less efficient option, we can send you an encrypted email with lab results and a work note.

What protocol should I be following (at home) while waiting for my test results?
While waiting on your test results you should live under the impression that you are in fact positive for COVID-19 this means isolating yourself from anyone in your house, avoid leaving home (consider online food shopping, delivery, etc.) wear a face mask and regularly wash your hands. Isolating yourself while you wait for your test results will help reduce the spread of COVID-19, if you do in fact test positive.
If more than one person from my family has a virtual visit, can we be seen together?
Yes. If more than one person in your family needs to be seen, you do not have to schedule separate meetings with our provider.
