All COVID-19 Molecular and Antigen tests for current infection require a referral from a Marque Medical Provider. To get your referral, please make a Virtual Visit and talk with one of our medical providers or fill out a COVID Questionnaire and come to a Marque testing clinic (all Marque clinics are testing except our Rancho Santa Margarita clinic at this time). The virtual visit is simple and covered by insurance if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or high-risk with exposure. Please note that making a virtual visit and getting a referral prior to coming to the clinic may be quicker if there’s a line at the clinic when you arrive. Ask the medical provider which clinic you would like to be tested at because most clinics have testing hours or require an appointment to be tested.

HOW TO GET A COVID-19 TEST

If you suspect that you may have COVID-19 or currently have symptoms and would like to get a diagnostic test to see if you have a current infection, there are two ways to get a referral:

1. Schedule a Virtual Visit and talk with one of our Marque Medical Providers. They will evaluate any current symptoms and assess your risk. The visit is covered by insurance if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or you’re high-risk with exposure. Virtual visits are available daily from 7 am to 10 pm. Once you have the referral, you may go to a Marque testing clinic (all Marque clinics are testing except our Rancho Santa Margarita clinic at this time) to be tested. Ask the medical provider which clinic you would like to be tested at because most clinics have testing hours or require an appointment to be tested.

2. Fill out a COVID-19 Questionnaire and come to a Marque testing clinic (all Marque clinics are testing except our Rancho Santa Margarita clinic at this time). Please note that making a virtual visit and getting a referral prior to coming to the clinic may be quicker if there’s a line at the clinic when you arrive.
