COVID-19 Nasal Swab Diagnostic Test

There are two types of tests available for COVID-19 screening: antibody and diagnostic.

Diagnostic Tests: Check samples from your respiratory system (such as swabs of the inside of the nose) to tell you if you currently have an infection with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

  Diagnostic Testing

Diagnostic tests can find the virus that causes COVID-19 in samples taken from your respiratory system, such as swabs of the inside of your nose. Most insurance plans are covering the diagnostic swab test. Once a diagnostic swab is performed it is sent to an outside lab that typically takes 1-3 days to process to get results. Marque clinics are also offering rapid molecular PCR diagnostic tests (more accurate than Antigen tests according to the CDC and FDA) with same-day results, based on supplies. The rapid molecular PCR non-invasive diagnostic tests are not billed through insurance and are offered at a cash-price of $250 per test. Lab-sent COVID diagnostic swabs are covered by most insurance. No insurance? Lab-sent COVID diagnostic swabs are $180 per test.

  How Can I Be Tested?

In order to get a COVID-19 diagnostic swab test, a Marque medical provider has to order it for you. If you suspect you have COVID-19 or currently are experiencing symptoms, please schedule a Virtual Visit first with one of our Marque medical providers. A Marque medical provider will assess your symptoms and exposure risk to see if a COVID test is necessary. The visit is covered by insurance with no cost-sharing to our patients. If you do not use insurance, the virtual visit is $99. You must have a Marque medical provider referral in order to get a COVID-19 diagnostic swab. Once you have a referral from a Marque medical provider, a Marque associate will call to schedule you for a COVID-19 car-side diagnostic swab test at a Marque testing facility. Lab-sent diagnostic swab tests are covered by most insurance. If you do not have insurance, the lab-sent diagnostic swab is $180. Testing is only available for patients who have been given an order by a Marque medical provider. We understand how important it is to get results back fast – to both our patients and communities. Our medical team is working around the clock and we want to be here to support our patients now more than ever.
