COVID-19 Testing FAQ
How much does testing cost?
Insured Patients: We are currently accepting most major insurances (including workers’ compensation) for the COVID-19 lab-based PCR test. The COVID-19 lab-based PCR test should be covered by your insurance. This is the test that is sent out to a lab to be analyzed. Telehealth 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 Lab-based PCR Swab: $95
- IgG Antibody Blood Draw: $55
- Telehealth Visit: $130
Advanced Urgent Care & Occupational Medicine does not charge or invoice self-pay patients for the COVID-19 lab-based PCR test. Patients will be billed the $95 by the lab that processes the test.
Please Note: Insurance coverage of the IgG antibody test varies. The antigen rapid COVID-19 test is currently not covered by insurance and is $95.
Is the COVID-19 test free?
Advanced Urgent Care & Occupational Medicine’s COVID-19 lab-based PCR testing is free to patients with insurance and we offer reduced pricing for self-pay patients. Although Governor Polis 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. At this time we do not accept referrals from doctors outside of our organization. The order for the COVID-19 test needs to come from one of our providers.
Do I need an appointment?
Yes, but we offer same-day appointment availability! To be seen virtually by one of our providers, you can call our screening number at 303-558-0509 or schedule online by clicking here.
Once you’ve had the virtual visit with one of our providers, the provider will schedule an appointment for you to be tested.
How long do results take to get back?
On average, results are taking 3-7 business days to be reported for the COVID-19 lab-based PCR test. 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.
The COVID-19 antigen rapid test results are available same day.
How can I get a copy of my lab results and work notes?
The best way to obtain results and work notes it to register for our Patient Portal. Please click here to register and/or sign in to the 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 assumption 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.) wearing a face mask, and regularly washing 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 telehealth 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.
