COVID Testing in Atlanta

If you are a patient needing to be evaluated for COVID-19, please follow the steps below.

To onboard for COVID-19 screening please follow the two steps listed below.

You are required to complete both steps.

We bill insurance for the visit and the COVID-19 test. We are currently out of network with most HMO’s including Kaiser and the POS plan from BCBS.

If you have no insurance the out of pocket cost for the visit is $60, the out of pocket cost for the COVID-19 nasal PCR test is $100 and the COVID-19 serum antibody test is $100. You will be invoiced directly from Quest Labs for any out of pocket lab cost.

Turnaround time for the nasal pcr test result is currently about 4 to 6 business days, depending on lab volumes. We do have options for expedited testing as well. Expedited tests are not rapid tests.  The expedited test is a molecular nucleic acid test, run at a large lab facility, which results in improved sensitivity. The expedited turn around results in 24 to 36 hours.  Expedited tests incur an additional out of pocket cost of $175.00 and this is not covered by insurance.
