COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test Overview:

  • The rapid antigen test is performed using a nasal swab, similar to the standard PCR COVID-19 test we also offer. Both tests will determine if there is an active coronavirus infection at the time of the test.

  • If you need to be tested for travel, to see a high-risk family member, or to return to school or work, this is a great option. Always follow state, local, and CDC recommendations when it comes to testing travel requirements. Pre-registration and payment are expected prior to testing.

  • Anyone that is symptomatic and or has had a known exposure to COVID-19 should opt for PCR testing which is paid fully by most insurances.

  • The Self-Pay Rapid Antigen test costs $199. Payment is made prior to the test.

  • There are some other providers that are participating in a city sponsored program. Cure Urgent Care is not eligible to participate in that program.

  • Rapid Antigen Testing is not the right option if you wish to submit a claim to your insurance carrier. If you wish to submit a claim to insurance, you are welcome to schedule a visit with a provider who will determine if it is medically necessary for you to have a PCR test.

  • Not all insurance carriers are viewing Rapid testing as medically necessary. Nearly all insurance carriers are covering 100% of costs for PCR testing.

  • Rapid Antigen Tests are less accurate than a PCR Test. Quidel, the manufacturer of our Rapid Antigen Test states that the test can detect 96% of infections within the first 5 days of the infection. Sensitivity of testing is dependent on an individual’s viral load which is a function of time since first infection and the severity of the infection.

  • No, we are not contractually allowed to submit partial claims for patients while simultaneously billing patients during a single encounter. If you are symptomatic or have had a known exposure, the clinical recommendation by our providers and insurance companies is that you take a PCR Test that should be billed to insurance. Our turnaround times are typically 2-3 days.

  • If you have a positive test result, it is very likely that you have COVID-19. You should follow CDC guidelines for quarantine. If you have any follow-on symptoms, contact your provider or Cure Urgent Care for follow-on treatment.

  • Unfortunately, the Rapid Antigen Test is not covered by your insurance and there is an out-of- pocket cost of $199. As a Medicare or Medicaid patient, you are not allowed to waive your insurance coverage so we cannot offer you the Rapid Antigen Test to anyone on these state-funded plans. We do offer PCR Testing which is covered by Medicare and Medicaid, with relatively quick results.

  • A negative Rapid Antigen Test result means that proteins from the virus that causes COVID-19 were not found in your sample. It is possible for this test to give a negative result that is incorrect (false negative). This means that possibly you could still have COVID-19 even though the test is negative. The amount of antigen in a sample may decrease the longer you have symptoms of infection. Specimens collected after you have had symptoms for more than seven days may be more likely to produce a negative result.
