Emergency COVID-19 Evaluation Procedures
If you feel you’ve had exposure to COVID-19 or you’re experiencing symptoms related to COVID-19 such as,
shortness of breath, cough, fever/chills, muscle/body aches, headache, and more,
emergency COVID-19 evaluations are available with results within 30 minutes.
Emergency COVID-19 evaluations are conducted through our emergency room by a board-certified ER physician.
Emergency room charges apply to those without a written order from a staff physician.
All commercial insurances are accepted with a $0 upfront cost.
At this time, due to federal law, we’re unable to accept Medicare & Medicaid plans for emergency COVID-19 evaluations.
If you are without insurance, we also have affordable pricing options available here.
