Covid-19 Serology Test
The serology test is a blood draw that tests for antibodies for Covid-19. The test is intended for use as an aid in identifying individuals with an adaptive immune response to SARS-CoV-2, indicating recent or prior infection.
A positive result does not mean you are currently infected with Covid-19. If you receive a positive result, it is recommended that you follow up with a nasal swab test to see if you are currently infectious. The serology test has high accuracy, and is FDA approved. Results are available in 24 hours.
This test is billable through your insurance, as long as you have a referral from your primary care provider. If you do not have a referral, you can schedule an appointment with one of our providers, or pay out of pocket. Self pay rate: $100 Call our office with any questions on the referral process or to schedule an appointment.
