North Texas Area Community Health Centers (NTACHC) is offering ID Now Rapid Testing and LabCorp COVID-19 Testing at all three of our locations. When a patient is suspicious for COVID-19, either due to symptoms or known exposure, a provider will present the options for testing and determine, with the patient, whether to order a LabCorp Test or an ID Now Rapid Test. Both tests are PCR antigen tests and are the most reliable tests for diagnosing COVID-19. The ID Now Rapid Test provides results the same day, while the LabCorp Test returns results within an average of 3-4 days. Swab samples are taken from the nose or mouth for both tests.
You may not have out-of-pocket costs if you are using insurance or if you are eligible for no-cost testing according to federal or state guidelines. You should contact your insurer to confirm the test will meet coverage criteria before scheduling a test. You may be billed by NTACHC and if applicable, LabCorp for the full price of the tests if your insurance denies coverage or you do not meet federal or state no-cost testing eligibility criteria.
We thank you for trusting NTACHC with your health and we are here when you need us.
