Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Test FAQ

  • Aren’t Covid-19 Tests Free? Yes many tests are free! Here’s a link to find free local testing sites from the Illinois Department of Public Health. Due to convenience, cost, and speed to administer this test in rapid fashion, we’re currently unable to bill public or private insurance.
  • Do you bill insurance? Due to the nature of this rapid test, we are unable to bill insurance. Under the CARES act, most tests are covered. Oswald’s will supply you with a digital receipt and a paper copy of your test results to submit for reimbursement. Call your insurance company in advance to confirm they’ll cover rapid tests.
  • When should I take this test? If you’ve been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, unless you’re symptomatic, wait 5-7 days after that contact to schedule your antigen test. That’s when the most accurate results will be read. If you’re symptomatic, you can sign up for a test as soon as you’re able.
  • Will this test allow me to travel/work if someone needs proof? It depends. This is an antigen test. Check with whatever agency, organization or business is requiring a test. Some require PCR/molecular tests, which this is not. If they allow rapid antigen tests, this will work. We also offer antibody tests here.
  • I’m asymptomatic, can’t I just walk in? Unfortunately not. We need all tests to be taken from your car, parked in the back of our store. Our workflow and choice to put the test in the back of the store is to protect patient privacy, our technician and other customers from those tests that are positive.
  • Why can’t I schedule a test further than 1 week in advance? If you have symptoms, you want to get tested as soon as possible. If you have come in contact with someone, and are asymptomatic, wait 5-7 days from the day of possible exposure before getting tested. That’s the time the virus could potentially be incubating, but won’t be detectable until days 5-7. Put simply, if you thing you were exposed, wait 5-7 days to be tested if you remain asymptomatic.
  • How Accurate is the Test? There’s over a 99% accuracy for measuring positive test results. There’s a 98.2% accuracy for negative tests. That’s why negative tests are considered presumptive. Please follow all CDC guidelines on safety practices even after testing negative.
  • Do you allow ‘drive-ups’ if I don’t have an appointment? Due to high demand, we are currently not accepting drive-ups
