COVID-19 Testing FAQ
How much does testing cost?
We’ve partnered with Rapid Testing to administer the COVID-19 rapid tests through our clinics. These rapid tests are considered optional and not medically necessary. Therefore, it is an out-of-pocket cost to the patient at the time of service.
- COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Swab: $95
- COVID-19 Rapid Abbott ID NOW Swab: $125
- IgG Antibody Blood Draw: $55
Please Note: Insurance coverage of the IgG antibody test varies. The lab-based PCR test is available through an in-clinic urgent care visit or a telehealth visit with Advanced Urgent Care & Occupational Medicine. Results turnaround is 3 to 7 days. A visit is required. The lab-based PCR is generally covered under insurance.
Is the COVID-19 test free?
The rapid tests are not free. Check your area for free testing sites.
Do I need an appointment?
Yes, but we offer same-day appointment availability! Click here to schedule your curbside rapid COVID-19 test.
How long do results take to come back?
The COVID-19 rapid test results are available the same day as testing.
On average, results are taking 3 to 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.
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. Click here for a how-to guide for accessing your results on the 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 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.
