SARS-CoV-2 Serology (COVID-19) Antibody (IgG), Test Available at No Cost.
The CARES ACT has ordered health insurance companies to pay for COVID-19 lab testing in full, with No Out of Pocket Cost to Patients.*
This new law covers the lab charge for the test, as long as it is ordered by a physician. An office visit (in-person or video visit) is still required to obtain the lab order for the test.
Vital Urgent Care is excited to partner with Quest Diagnostics to offer this valuable blood test.
COVID-19 antibody testing may indicate that “the person has been exposed to the virus and developed antibodies against it, which may mean that person has at least some immunity to the coronavirus. Antibody testing uses blood serum specimens and is referred to as serology testing.
This serology test aids in detecting the presence of immunoglobulin class G (IgG). IgG antibody response typically develops by 14 days after symptom onset of COVID-19.
The COVID-19 Antibody Serology Test is available only to patients who: have a test requisition from a healthcare provider; are asymptomatic; have been asymptomatic for at least 10 days; lack a fever (as assessed by non-contact thermometer checks at time of visit).
We encourage anyone who thinks they may have been exposed to the Coronavirus to call our office for details. Patients will be asked to have an office visit (either in person or video visit) to obtain a lab requisition and then they will have their blood taken at a local Quest Diagnostics Service Center. Both the office and antibody test can be billed to health insurance. Test results are available within 2-3 days.
(*Lab charges are covered without copay or deductible. Office visit may be subject to copay and/or deductible.)
