How much does it cost to get a drive-thru test? Is the test covered by insurance?
We accept insurance at the drive-thru test sites. However, under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act approved by Congress, patients should not have any out-of-pocket costs with their insurance. Uninsured patients will be covered under a program funded by the Department of Health and Human Services.
How much does the COVID-19 test cost?
At this time, there is no cost to eligible patients who meet CDC criteria for this test. For LabCorp tests administered at certain locations, the patient’s insurance will be billed for reimbursement to LabCorp. Patients should check with their insurance company to determine any limitations on qualification and frequency of testing.
How much does it cost to be tested?
If you are not in California, COVID-19 testing is available at no cost to you, regardless of your health insurance status.
If you’re in California, you will be asked to provide your health insurance information to schedule an appointment. Most health insurance plans will cover the full cost of testing, at no expense to you. If you don’t have insurance, you will not be charged for the services provided.
We encourage you to check with your health insurance plan to see if they will cover testing through this program, particularly if you have any of the following plans:
- short-term, limited-duration insurance
- retiree-only health plans
CVS那个“Uninsured patients will be covered under a program funded by the Department of Health and Human Services.”可能就是那个报被拒的说的只针对us resident的理由。另外两家理论上应该不会有问题。。。
