COVID PCR Molecular Test

COVID-19 TESTING
Schedule Test

This test tells you if you have an active COVID-19 infection. The Molecular PCR COVID-19 test is the most accurate and accepted test available.

The test is performed with a nasal swab at our Portage test center. The sample is then sent to a lab for processing. Results are returned within 48-72 hours.

There is no cost at the time of the test. The lab will bill your insurance and the CARES Act helps pay for uninsured individuals showing symptoms or with known exposure.

If you need to be tested for travel this is the test required. All states except Hawaii accept the results from this test.

COVID Rapid Results Test

COMING SOON

This test tells you if you have an active COVID-19 infection. The Rapid Test is not as sensitive as the molecular PCR test.

The test is performed with a nasal swab at our Portage test center. The sample is processed onsite. Results are returned within 15 minutes.

There is a $99 cost for this test. You will be given a receipt you can submit to your health insurance.

COVID Antibody Test

COMING SOON

The COVID-19 Antibody Test checks your blood to see if you have COVID-19 antibodies in your system. The antibody test is not a diagnostic tool and cannot be used to determine if you are currently sick. Instead, this test looks to see whether someone’s immune system—the body’s defense against illness—has developed antibodies that would have been used to fight the novel coronavirus. COVID-19 antibody testing provides more information about the virus and where it has spread, enabling public health experts to make better decisions on how to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

The test involves a finger prick to draw blood. The blood sample is processed on-site and results are available within 15 minutes.

There is a $49 cost for this test. You will be given a receipt you can submit to your health insurance.
