EvergreenHealth Urgent Care is offering COVID-19 viral testing for current symptoms at all six of our Urgent Care centers. This test is to determine if you have a current COVID-19 infection; this is not an antibody test determining if you've had a previous infection. At this time, EvergreenHealth is not performing antibody testing for COVID-19 – for more information, please visit here (PDF).
As with all clinical testing and screening, EvergreenHealth follows evidence-based protocols and guidelines to ensure all patient testing is medically necessary as a responsible healthcare provider, and partner to our patients.
Your EvergreenHealth Urgent Care provider will work with you to determine if a COVID-19 test is necessary based on your current symptoms and medical history. A COVID test will be provided following your assessment and at the practice. Once your results are in, you'll receive a call from the practice informing you of your test result.
How much will my COVID-19 test cost?
During the national public health emergency period, most insurance plans will cover medically necessary COVID-19 testing at no cost-share (copayment, coinsurance or deductible) when ordered by a physician or health care professional for purposes of diagnosis or treatment. COVID-19 testing for other reasons such as workplace health and safety, travel or public health may not be covered by insurance. If your insurance plan does not cover the cost of your test, you will be responsible for the cost of the test or any cost-share.
EvergreenHealth's charge for collecting the COVID-19 lab specimen is $55. You may receive a separate bill for the processing of the COVID-19 lab specimen – EvergreenHealth's charge for processing the COVID-19 lab specimen is $200. If the charge is not reimbursed by your insurance plan, you will be responsible for any charges not covered.
