Rapid COVID-19 Testing at STAT MED: Same Day Results
Stat Med Urgent Care is currently using the Abbott IDNow, a molecular NAAT test with results within 3 hours, as well as the Quidel Antigen COVID test with results within 3 hours of testing. Both have Emergency Use Authorization through the FDA and await full FDA approval as many other tests are.
The swabbing for all COVID-19 tests is nasal swab and/or throat swab, not a deep nasopharyngeal swabbing. Most patient say it tickles.
Stat Med typically performs the swabbing in the clinic parking lot while the patient remains seated in their car, so there is no need to come into the clinic͘.

FAQ: Insurance Coverage for COVID-19 Diagnostic Testing
Insurance coverage for COVID testing is evolving. The Public Health Emergency (PHE) period has been extended through April 20, 2021. As a result, insurance companies are still required to pay for the COVID test but may not fully cover the visit or administration fees. Please contact your insurance carrier for details or questions regarding your plan coverage.
* The cash price for either the standard COVID-19 rapid or PCR virus tests or the COVID antibody test is $125.
