FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Which type of test do I need?

A: The PCR Viral and Rapid tests will identify if you are currently infected with the COVID-19 virus, whereas the Antibody test will determine if you were previously infected with the COVID-19 virus. However, the PCR Viral test is the gold standard, and most reliable test for an active COVID-19 infection.

Q: Is the rapid test as accurate as the PCR viral test?

A: No. Rapid tests are designed to test patients within the first 5 days of symptoms. Although they have high accuracy when used during this time, they are not as accurate as the gold standard PCR test and can results in a “false negative”.

Q: What if my rapid test is negative?

A: This could be a “false negative” result as rapid tests do not always detect the virus. A negative rapid test does not completely rule out an active COVID-19 or Influenza infection, especially if you have had an exposure or currently have symptoms. With a negative rapid COVID result, Telescope Health recommends confirming with a PCR Covid test. For a rapid negative influenza test, Telescope Health recommends following up with your doctor.

Q: Are there age restrictions on testing?

A: There are no age restrictions on PCR Viral and rapid testing, and for antibody testing, you must be 15 years of age or older.

Q: Can I file for reimbursement with my insurance company?

A: If you are insured, you are responsible for the draw fee(s) stated above. Your lab fee will be filed by our processing laboratory Quest, based on the insurance information you provided. At this time we only offer self-pay for the rapid test.

Q: If I’m uninsured, what are my test options and costs?

A: If you are a resident of St. John’s County and uninsured, you qualify for a free COVID-19 test. Financial support for the uninsured covers the PCR test only. If you want the Rapid or Antigen test, self-pay is required.

Q: Can I get tested if I live out of state?

A: Testing is available for anyone who comes to our test site regardless of home address.
