Does my insurance cover diagnostic lab tests?
Most health insurance plans (public and private) will cover diagnostic lab tests if a healthcare provider has determined that the test is medically necessary and has provided a written or electronic order. Please check with your insurance company to see which tests your individual plan covers. If you have questions about insurance coverage, costs, or payment, please contact our customer service team.

What is the difference between a PCR and Rapid Test?
PCR tests are recommended by healthcare professionals to detect COVID-19 when symptoms begin to appear or if you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. PCR tests detect the molecular (genetic) presence of the virus. A PCR test detects COVID-19 earlier than rapid tests, even among people who are asymptomatic. Rapid tests are over-the-counter tests that detect the antigen protein created by the virus. It is not as sensitive as the PCR test in detecting COVID-19 in its early stages and has therefore been known to produce “false negative” results. Rapid tests are useful to track your recovery process.
