Nasal Swab Testing
The nasal swab tests are performed for active infection for Covid-19. PCR testing is used to provide very accurate results to let you know if you are currently infected with the coronavirus. If you have a referral from your Primary Care Provider, we can bill your insurance. If you do not have a referral, you can schedule an appointment with one of our providers to receive a referral so that we may bill your insurance. Or without a referral, you can pay out of pocket. Self pay rate: $125. Group rates available upon request. Call our office with any questions on the referral process or to schedule an appointment. Results for this test are available in 24 to 48 hours.
