HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE?

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act requires group health plans to provide cost-free coverage of COVID-19 testing during the national public health emergency period. 
COVID-19 test visits are submitted to your healthcare insurance company and we accept the allowed amount for reimbursement.  
In the event your COVID-19 visit is not covered by your healthcare insurance, or reimbursement is paid to the patient, you will be responsible for your payment to Coastal Family Urgent Care. It will be your obligation to obtain and submit the proper information to your health insurance company for reimbursement for payment to ensure there is no out of pocket cost to you.
In order to qualify, we MUST have a copy of the front and back of your insurance card.  This may be submitted when you receive your appointment confirmation forms. Even with entry of your insurance information, your specimen will NOT be sent without a copy.

 

***This does not include antibody testing. Please check your insurance plan for coverage.***
If you do not have insurance, you will be asked for your Social Security number (card not needed), driver’s license or state ID to submit the cost of your test to the federal program for the uninsured. There will be no cost to you as the patient.
Those not enrolled in a healthcare plan will be required to sign an uninsured attestation to qualify for federally funded benefits.

WHY IS TESTING IMPORTANT?

Although a positive or negative result may not change your immediate treatment, it is an important factor in determining your best course of care. Diagnostic testing is also an essential component for health care authorities to get a better sense of how this disease is spreading. Testing helps identify specific areas and groups with higher rates of infection. Understanding these patterns is important to protect the public’s health and continue safely reopening . The results may help guide containment strategies, prioritize actions and help researchers determine what is needed or effective.

CONTINUE SOCIAL DISTANCING

Continue to practice social distancing (staying 6 feet away from other persons) and avoid large gatherings. Make it a habit to avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Wash your hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Stay home when you are sick . Cover your cough or sneeze with your elbow or clean tissue. Disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces including your electronic devices.
While waiting for your test results, continue to monitor your health and take steps to protect yourself and others. Next steps will depend on your situation. Please review the most up to date San Diego Public Health Orders.
  • If you are experiencing symptoms, stay home and keep your distance from others. Follow home isolation precautions and practice physical distancing as you recover, including distancing from other people in your home.
  • If you do NOT have symptoms, but were identified by a medical professional as a close contact of someone who has tested positive, you should quarantine at home.  If you are an essential worker, talk to your employer to see if you may continue working with extra precautions.
  • If you have been advised to self isolate or quarantine, please follow your county public health department reccommendations for when to resume your normal activities.
  • Continue to practice physical distancing, wear a face covering outside the house, and practice proper hygiene, including washing your hands.
Note: The specimens obtained are sent to a third party laboratory facility for processing. The results of the tests performed should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude a present or previous infections status of SARS-CoV-2.
