How much does COVID-19 testing cost?
We recommend patients reach out to their specific insurance provider to confirm coverage prior to testing. For those without insurance, our centers offer testing under our standard Prompt-Pay program. The cost through our Prompt-Pay program is $139**, due at the time of the visit, plus a lab fee that is billed separately by Quest.
**PLEASE NOTE: COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Testing is an additional charge, not billed to insurance, due in full at the time of service. Please contact your nearest CCMD center for more information on this.
COVID-19 Test Results
COVID-19 test results are typically available within 3-5 days. We will call you if your results are POSITIVE. Negative results will be sent via direct mail. Additionally, your results can be accessed from Quest Diagnostics by creating a MyQuest account.
The health and safety of our patients and team is our top priority. Out of this concern, all visitors (with some exceptions) accompanying a patient are prohibited from entering our facility. Exceptions to this policy are:
- Parents of underage children
- Caregivers of elderly patients
- Guardians of disabled adults
At ClearChoiceMD, we’re taking steps to ensure the safest possible experience for our patients and our team. This includes requiring all patients and approved visitors to wear a face mask. You must have your face mask on when you arrive and keep it on during the duration of your visit, unless otherwise directed by a provider. All patients, ages two years and older, must wear a mask in order to be evaluated and treated inside any of our centers. This safety measure is enforced at all of our urgent care locations for your protection as well as the protection of our team and our patients. If you don’t have a mask, we will happily provide you one.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) FAQs
What is coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)?
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person.
How can I help prevent the spread of respiratory infections, including COVID-19?
- Stay home until your fever has been gone for at least 72 hours without taking any fever reducing medication and at least 10 days have passed since your symptoms first appeared
- Cover coughs and sneezes
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
- Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects
How does COVID-19 spread?
It’s not clear yet how easily COVID-19 spreads from person-to-person. Human coronaviruses spread from an infected person to others through respiratory droplets, including:
- Through the air by coughing and sneezing
- Close personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands
- Touching an object or surface with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes before washing your hands
This is similar to how influenza and other respiratory infections spread.
What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
We are still learning about how COVID-19 affects people. Symptoms can appear 2–14 days after exposure and include:
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
This list does not include all possible symptoms. CDC will continue to update this list as we learn more about COVID-19.
ClearChoiceMD Urgent Care is now offering COVID-19 active infection testing and COVID-19 antibody testing testing at all centers. Our centers remain open to test and treat all other urgent, non-life-threatening medical needs, including evaluation to determine what type of COVID-19 testing is needed. The health and safety of our patients, communities and team is our top priority. Please rest assured, we are taking extra safety measures so that patients seeking care for all other urgent non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries can continue to safely be seen at any ClearChoiceMD location.
What is self-quarantine?
If you have been identified as a contact to someone diagnosed with COVID-19 or have returned from a country with a travel advisory for COVID-19, follow these guidelines for self-quarantine for 14 days from your last potential exposure:
- Take your temperature with a thermometer at least two times a day and watch for cough or difficulty breathing.
- Stay home from school and work.
- Discuss your work situation with your employer before returning to work.
- Do not take public transportation, taxis, or ride-shares.
- Try not to have any visitors to your house during this time. If you have visitors tell them that you are under COVID-19 self-quarantine.
- Keep your distance from others (about 6 feet or 2 meters).
- If you get sick with fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other signs of respiratory illness, please contact your state health department.
- If you need to seek medical care for other reasons, such as dialysis, call ahead to your doctor and tell them about your recent travel and symptoms. If you have a medical emergency, call 911. Tell them your symptoms and that you are being monitored for COVID-19.
