 FAQ

1. Does insurance cover testing?

We encourage all patients to submit for insurance reimbursement. You will be provided with all the necessary information that would be needed to submit for reimbursement (ICD 10 Code, Remedy EIN) on your receipt which is emailed to you after check out. Although we are happy to help answer questions and provide all the necessary documentation we can not guarantee that your insurance will cover your test.

2. If I have a positive antibody test does it mean that I do not need to get a vaccine?

At this time (1/12/21) the CDC is not recommending antibody testing prior to vaccination to help decide if someone should or should not receive a vaccine. The CDC recommends everyone who can get vaccinated.

3. Will this test work for travel restrictions/requirements? 

Antibody testing is not generally required for travel as it does not signify the presence or absence of an active infection 

4. Can I call and book over the phone or in person instead of online?

We are sorry but at this time all booking must be made online.

5. I don't want to create a PayPal account. How do I pay without signing up for PayPal?
