PCR/Molecular COVID-19 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. The test we offer is only for those looking to travel, return to work, school, or any other requirement outside of immediate healthcare needs. If you think you have COVID-19 or have been exposed, please reach out to your primary care doctor, immediate care center, rapid testing site, or state-run provider of COVID-19 tests. The cost of our test covers our administrative fee and high-quality test supplies as recommended by our laboratory consultant.
  • How will I receive my results? You will be texted your results as soon as they are processed. If you do not have a mobile phone, we can also email your results. When you finish signing up for your test, you will be directed to Simple Report to provide additional information to receive your test results through their secured website.
  • Does this test include a QR code? Our PCR test does not include a QR Code required by some countries for international travel. Before signing up, please verify with your airline/destination what requirements they have for PCR tests. The results will be sent from SimpleReport.gov, a United States Government testing database.
  • Do you bill insurance? No.  Due to the nature of this rapid test and the reasons for which you are acknowledging that you are seeking the test, we are unable to bill insurance. Under the CARES act, many tests can be covered by providers. In order to find those providers and/or sites, we always recommend calling your insurance company in advance to confirm they’ll cover the test and to find testing sites that are in-network with your insurance.  Additionally, there are many free tests. Here again, is the link to find free local testing sites from the Illinois Department of Public Health.
  • 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 are to protect patient privacy, our technician, and other customers from those tests that may be positive.
  • 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.
