Is there a charge for COVID testing?
Currently, the public health emergency is covering COVID tests but there are differing guidelines on patient responsibility. For this reason, we do not charge patients with active insurance coverage up front for COVID tests but we do have a policy to collect credit card on file in case the insurance company applies a coinsurance, copay or deductible
If a patient does not have insurance, the cost for PCR test is $190 and the cost for RAPID Antigen test is $169

How long does it take for the itemized bill to be generated?
The itemized bills are generated from the central billing office and the process takes about 3 business days. Occasionally for some patients, it may take longer than that as we must wait for approval from the insurance companies before we can generate the itemized bills.
How can I get my itemized bill?
The itemized bill can either be collected in person or we can have it mailed to the mailing address that you put on file at the time of your visit. We cannot email or fax the bill without explicit permission from you in writing as this is protected by HIPAA laws.
How long are the wait times?
For walk-in patients, the wait times vary depending on the number of people signed in ahead of them. For patients with appointment, there might be an occasional delay as we have a limited capacity for the number of people who can be in our waiting room to ensure social distancing. We always ensure that patients with appointments are given a priority over the walk-in patients.

Is it mandatory to leave a credit card on file?
For all insured patients, we save credit card on file as we only know the exact patient responsibility after the claims have gone through your insurance company which would sometimes take weeks. Having a credit card on file enables us to issue any refunds or collect any patient balances without inconveniencing the patients to physically come to the clinic to collect a refund or pay a bill. We will notify you by email before running a card saved on file or after issuing a refund.
For all self-pay patients, all patients are responsible for payment at the point of service.
