Yes! You may take as many tests as needed provided there is medical need; showing Covid symptoms or direct exposure to someone who has tested positive. The best way to be certain is to contact your insurance carrier in advance of your testing.
Medical need is the determining factor. While it is proactive and admirable that you want to know, that will not be enough reason for insurance to reimburse you. When answering the symptom questionnaire on our website when making your appointment, we collect your answers to determine the medical need. You need to be showing symptoms, even if very mild, or have been directly exposed to Covid to determine a need for your test and generate subsequent insurance reimbursement forms. Depending on your symptoms, some tests may not be covered. Unsure? Have questions? Please contact your insurance carrier in advance of your testing.

All insurance carriers and plans are different. Initially you may pay out of pocket for certain tests we do not bill directly to your insurance. After the test is complete, we supply you with the needed forms for you to submit to your insurance carrier for reimbursement. When you fill out the form on our website to make your appointment, your answers to the questions determine "Medical Need" which generally is reimbursable. Direct exposure to someone who has tested positive for COVID or if you are showing symptoms usually determines "Medical Need." The requirements are outlined in the FFCRA & CARES Acts.
After you receive your test results, submit the attached PDF (found in your results email you received), along with your appointment confirmation & receipt, to your insurance carrier. Any codes or other needed information will be on those two documents.
