COVID 19 testing

At this time Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) and United Healthcare (UHC) are paying less than other medical insurance payors and less than our expense for performing the test.  These patients may go to an urgent care or county health department or purchase an over the counter rapid test and self test.  Alternatively, a PCR test can be performed at no additional cost by our office.  The cash pay price of the test is $75, if you have blue cross blue shield or united healthcare and prefer for our office to perform the rapid test.
