Rapid Testing in Centennial
Rapid Testing offers the rapid diagnostic test COVID. This includes the two types of test: antigen and molecular. The Centennial urgent care has three rapid tests to choose from:
- The antigen rapid test is a Sofia antigen test that is manufactured by the Quidel Corporation.
- The Abbott ID NOW is a molecular test that is NAAT-certified. This means it is a widely accepted COVID test for travel.
- The rapid PCR test Centennial 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. Rapid test results are available the same day as testing.

Does Insurance Cover COVID Testing?
The rapid tests are not covered by insurance. The rapid COVID 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.
