Avecina Medical offers three (3) types of rapid COVID-19 tests:
(1) Rapid COVID-19 Antigen test via nasal swab for detection of current infection with 96.7% Sensitivity and 100% Specificity.
Purpose: This test should be done if you are symptomatic, had exposure, or need to use your insurance for your visit. This test can also be chosen for certain travel destinations as long as they accept a rapid antigen COVID-19 test. If you are not insured, the test alone can be done as ala carte for $125 per test.
(2) Rapid Antibody Test via finger stick that verifies the presence of IgG/IgM antibodies which show previous infection and protection with 100% Sensitivity and 98.9% Specificity.
Purpose: This test should be done to demonstrate if a patient already has COVID-19 antibodies which reflects a recent COVID-19 infection. The presence of IgG antibodies demonstrates the same level of protection and immunity as if a patient was vaccinated. Most patients’ antibodies last approximately six (6) months after recovering from the infection. The cost of this test is covered by insurance in most cases and can be also done as self-pay for $125 per test.
(3) Rapid Sars-Cov PCR using Cepheid GeneXpert Analyzer.
THIS TEST IS NOT COVERED BY INSURANCE AND CAN ONLY BE DONE AS SELF-PAY. DO NOT CHOOSE THIS TEST IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS OR PLANNING TO USE YOUR INSURANCE.
Purpose: Avecina Medical is now providing rapid PCR test for patients that are traveling to destinations that only accept PCR test for entry. This test can also be done to meet any situation that requires a PCR test as a condition. This test is done as an ala carte and does not include a visit with a provider, consultation, or treatment if the results are positive. The cost of this test is $195 per test and results are available the same day. Appointment cancelations will be charged a $50 cancelation fee if the appointment is canceled within 48-hours of the appointment.
Only one test can be performed per visit if you are using medical insurance.
Same Day Results
Some countries will not accept a COVID antigen test and require a PCR test only.
