Advanced Urgent Care & Occupational Medicine’s Brighton clinic, located at 2801 Purcell St., Brighton CO 80601, partnered with Rapid Testing to provide rapid testing in Brighton.
Rapid Testing Brighton
Rapid Testing offers the rapid diagnostic test COVID. This includes the two types of tests: antigen and molecular. The Brighton medical clinic has the antigen rapid test and nearby clinics offer the molecular rapid tests. Testing options include:
- The antigen rapid test is a Sofia antigen test that is manufactured by the Quidel Corporation.
- Available at our nearby clinics, the Abbott ID NOW is a molecular test that is NAAT-certified. This means it is a widely accepted COVID test for travel.
- Available at our nearby clinics, the rapid PCR test is a molecular test and also NAAT-certified.
All rapid tests provide same-day results. Click here to learn more about the tests and pricing.
According to the FDA, the molecular test detects the virus by looking for genetic material from the virus. The antigen rapid test detects the virus by looking for proteins from the virus. The rapid tests produce results much more quickly than the lab-based RT-PCR test. Results from the rapid tests are available the same day as testing.

Does Insurance Cover COVID Testing?
The rapid tests are not covered by insurance. The COVID-19 rapid tests are 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. Payment is due at the time of service: cash or credit card.
The lab-based RT-PCR test is typically covered by insurance. This is a molecular test and the results are sent to a lab. It can take 3 to 7 days for results to return from the lab. A telehealth visit with Advanced Urgent Care & Occupational Medicine is required for testing.
