Call Revolution Health or schedule an appointment online today to learn more.

What is COVID-19 testing?

COVID-19 testing detects the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, its biomarkers, or the antibodies produced after infection. COVID-19 is an infection caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. While its severity varies from person to person, some people can experience significant respiratory symptoms that take days, weeks, or months to subside.

The simplest way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is through accurate testing. A COVID test helps you figure out whether you need to self-isolate to prevent the infection from spreading. 

Are there different types of COVID-19 testing?

At Revolution Health, Katie performs three types of COVID testing:

Rapid antigen test

A rapid antigen test can detect the active virus in your body. Results are available within 10 minutes, giving you the answers you need quickly. A rapid test is ideal if you’re already experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. Most insurances are no longer covering in-office rapid antigen tests, but Revolution Health offers antigen testing for just $40.

RT-PCR test

An RT-PCR test can detect asymptomatic cases of COVID-19 with higher accuracy. You may need one to travel abroad. Revolution Health offers rapid and lab RT-PCR tests. 

The rapid RT-PCR test produces results within 30 minutes and costs $199. Insurance carriers don’t cover this type of test as you are paying for the convenience of results in 30 minutes. For insurance coverage, Katie recommends a lab test. During this diagnostic, Katie collects your sample in the office and sends it to Quest® or LabCorp® for testing, where results can take 3-5 business days depending on the lab.

Antibody testing

An antibody test checks for proteins that your body produces in response to an infection. You may want an antibody test to determine whether you have immunity against COVID-19. This $99 test offers results within 15 minutes in office.

When do I need COVID-19 testing?

If you’re traveling abroad, your airline may require an RT-PCR COVID test. Many event venues also ask attendees to show proof of a negative test when they arrive. Preventing the spread of COVID-19 is critical to ending the pandemic. To ensure you don’t spread the disease, watch out for COVID symptoms such as:

  • Persistent cough
  • Loss of taste and smell 
  • Sore throat
  • Headache
  • Chills
  • Muscle aches
  • Runny nose or nasal congestion
  • Fever
  • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
  • Shortness of breath

Revolution Health offers mobile testing in addition to in-office COVID services. Whether you need a COVID-19 test for your employees, a special event, or a conference, Katie and the team can travel to your location for testing.
