Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q1: How much does the test cost? - The price is $130 per test

Q2: Can you bill my insurance? No, medical and prescription insurances do not pay for patients getting COVID rapid tests at the pharmacy. Be sure to call your insurance and tell them you want pharmacies to be able to bill your insurance!  This is an out-of-pocket test at this time.

Q3: How long will it take to get the results? You will receive the results same-day. 

Q4: Will I be able to get a prescription after the test? No, this test is just to determine if you have the COVID-19 virus or not. We will be able to recommend OTC products, but not provide prescriptions.

Q5: Who is administering the test? For the protection of our customers and staff, we require customers to swab themselves to get the sample. The process is very easy and painless, only needing to swab the inside of the nostril for 5 seconds on each side.

Q6: How will my results be sent to me? We will send your results via text. The text will also include an email to contact for a pdf copy for official documentation, if desired.

Q7: What type of COVID-19 test are you using? We provide the rapid ANTIGEN COVID-19 test, which detects active virus to indicate if you have an ACTIVE infection.

Q8: What ages do you offer the test for? We currently offer the test for patients ages 5 and over. We are working on being able to offer the test on younger patients, and will notify customers when available for younger patients. 

Q9: What is the accuracy of the COVID-19 rapid antigen test? The manufacturer of the test we use lists the positive percent agreement (PPA) of the test as 84%, and the negative percent (NPA) agreement as 100%.

Q10: Will a negative test result be acceptable for travel purposes? Guidelines and requirements for travel change frequently and are always evolving. We highly recommend that you check,  with your desired destination for guidance, BEFORE your trip and booking a testing appointment, if a certain type of test is required. Sometimes they will require a molecular (PCR) test, which is different than the antigen test we offer. 

Q11: What are the instructions and process of getting tested? We have two different types of processes, depending on which testing location you book your test at. 

*North Shoal Creek Location*- This is a drive-thru model testing center. Patients will remain in their car, follow instructions on the signs located on-site, and call to check-in for their appointment. When it is your turn to be tested, you'll pull forward to the collection area, get tested, and then drive off! Results will be sent via text message same-day.

*Central Tarrytown Pharmacy Location* - This is a "drive-up" model testing location. Patients will remain in their cars, and pull into one of six available COVID Testing parking spaces.
