All COVID-19 Molecular and Antigen tests require a referral from a Marque Medical Provider. To get a referral, please make a COVID-19 pre-screening Virtual Visit with one of our medical providers. The visit is simple, quick, and covered by insurance if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or high-risk with exposure. Once you have a referral, you can come into one of our testing clinics to get a COVID-19 test. Ask the medical provider which clinic you would like to be screened at because most clinics have testing hours.
