What is COVID-19 Test
COVID-19 test (SARS-COV-2PCR) is used to detect any possible evidence of the COVID-19 virus; the technology used is Nucleic Acid Amplification (NAA). Our doctor samples a swab from the patient’s nose (nasopharyngeal method), without having the patient leave the vehicle.
To get COVID-19 testing in Bethesda Immediate Care a Video Visit (telemedicine) with our doctor is required, which allows us to check if you need a COVID-19 or other tests, or not; if the need is confirmed, you proceed to getting a quick, drive-thru test in the special testing sites; locations are mentioned below. One can have only 1 drive-by time-window per day for each testing site; the schedules are also mentioned below.
How Much Does it Cost
The cost for the whole procedure of the COVID-19 test is $125, which can be fully covered by the insurances that AllCare accepts. Please, expect the results to come back in 1-3 business days.
