IM Health Urgent Care currently offers 3 testing options for the diagnosis of COVID-19

  • RT-PCR SARS-CoV-2
  • Rapid Molecular, ABBOTT ID NOW SARS-CoV-2 test
  • Rapid Antigen, BD Veritor SARS-CoV-2 test

RT-PCR SARS-CoV-2 testing FAQs:

  1. What is an RT-PCR SARS-CoV-2 test?
    1. Also called a “molecular test”, a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test is a test used to diagnose people who are currently infected with SARS-CoV-2, which is the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. 
    2. The PCR test is the “gold standard” test for diagnosing COVID-19 because it’s the most accurate and reliable test.
  1. How much does it cost?
    1. With insurance, all COVID testing is covered.
    2. Without insurance, all COVID testing is $150
  1. What is the turnaround time for the RT-PCR test?
    1. Because we use a third party lab, turn around is dependent on volume.
    2. Typically, turn around is 24-36 hours.

Rapid Molecular, ABBOTT ID NOW SARS-CoV-2 Testing FAQs:

  1. What is the ABBOTT ID NOW SARS-CoV-2 rapid molecular test?
    1. This test is a molecular test, similar to the RT-PCR test. 
    2. Like the RT-PCR test, the ABBOTT ID NOW rapid molecular test detects viral RNA (nucleic acid), which is the virus’s genetic material
    3. We use a shallow nasal swab to collect the sample.
    4. 96.2% sensitivity and 99.5% specificity
    5. Results in 15 minutes
    6. Cost is $100

Rapid Antigen, BD Veritor SARS-CoV-2 Testing FAQs:

  1. What is COVID‑19 (SARS‑CoV‑2) rapid antigen testing?
    1. This test detects a viral protein (antigen) which is part of the viral structure
    2. We use a shallow nasal swab to collect the sample.
    3. Best utilized within the first 5 days of the onset of symptoms
    4. Good for testing contagion
    5. 84% sensitivity and 100% specificity
    6. Results in 15 minutes
    7. Cost is $75

  • We conduct most of our testing outside the building at your car.
  • During inclimate weather, we utilize a remote, isolated portion of the building with a separate entrance. This room is sanitized between patients for everyone’s safety.

  • You will receive a text message allowing you to “consent” and “check-in” OR
  • Please call us (610) 688-8807 when you arrive and we will direct you.
  • Remain in your vehicle.
  • Please keep your facemask on during the entire visit until asked to lower it for the swab.

We utilize a small probe that is only inserted about 1 inch into your nostril.

Our probe does NOT go all the way into your sinus cavity like some others do.

  • Results are released to your Patient Portal which you can access through our website HERE.
  • (RT)-PCR tests will also be made available through the patient portal of LabCorp or Quest.
  • Rapid results will be provided right away with documentation.

IM Health Urgent Care currently offers both (RT)-PCR testing and Rapid antigen testing.

  1. What’s the difference and which is right for me?
    • (RT)-PCR testing is considered the “Gold Standard” in testing for Covid-19.
      • These results are considered to be close to 100% accurate.
      • Turn around time is usually a few days.
      • Cost:
        1. You are responsible for your Urgent Care co-pay. You can obtain this by calling your insurance company if it’s not listed on your insurance card.
        2. If you have a high deductible plan, we will bill your insurance but you may be responsible for a portion and we will bill you.
        3. If you do not have insurance cost is $150 for the office visit
    • Rapid antigen testing can be completed in about 15 minutes
      • These tests can produce slightly more false negatives than a (RT)-PCR test but tend NOT to produce false positives. (i.e. if it’s positive, it’s positive)
      • Cost: Office visit + $100. We are not currently billing this test to your insurance company. We will provide you with an itemized receipt that you can submit to your insurance.
      • We will automatically send off a “confirmatory” PCR test at no additional cost if you desire.
