Yes, insurance should reimburse you for your test. Initially you pay out of pocket.

Yes! You may take as many test as needed provided there is medical need; showing Covid symptoms or direct exposure to someone who has tested positive. Insurance most likely will reimburse you for your tests under those explicit circumstances. The best way to be certain is to contact your insurance company 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 company in advance of your testing.
Most likely not, but it's best to check with your insurance first. There is nothing that you need to show us from your insurance company upon your arrival.
All insurance carriers and plans are different. Initially you pay out of pocket. After the test is complete, we supply you with the needed forms for you to submit to your insurance company 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.
First, please read the questions above about eligibility for reimbursement. After you take your test, we will give you all the required codes for your insurance. They will be located on the PDF you get with your results.
