Fast Answers to Your Health Questions
PCR testing screens for the genetic material of SARS-CoV-2, the name of the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19. It is associated with highly accurate results, even in patients with no noticeable symptoms. Here are a few key facts about rapid PCR testing at Affinity Urgent Care:
- A nasal swab is used to collect a mucus sample.
- It is covered by most insurances, but not all.
- The self-pay cost is $350.
- Results are provided the same day the test is conducted.
- Prior notice is encouraged for rapid PCR testing
Traditional “send-out” PCR testing with results available in 3-5 days is also available at a lower self-pay rate, as is rapid antigen testing that produces same-day results.
