Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q1: Howmuch does the test cost? - 

See the booking page for updated pricing

Q2: Can you bill my insurance? 

No, medical and prescription insurances cannot be billed by our pharmacy and this is an out-of-pocket test.

However, patients may submit a manual claim to their medical insurance for possible reimbursement, after their test. This will be the responsibility of the patient, and not Tarrytown Pharmacy. The pharmacy does provide the necessary information to submit the insurance, and that information is included in our official pdf results document that is available upon request.

Q3: How long will it take to get the results? You will receive the results same-day as your sample collection, but usually within a few hours.

Q4: 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.

Q5: 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.

Q6: What type of COVID-19 test are you using? We provide the rapid ANTIGEN COVID-19, PCR COVID-19 test, Strep, and Flu Tests which detects active infections.

Q7: What ages do you offer the test for? We currently offer the test for patients ages 2 and over.

Q8: 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%.

Q9: 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. We offer both an Antigen, PCR, Molecular (NAAT) rapid test, that may suffice for your travel destination. Always check to make sure the test you order will be accepted.

Q10: What do I do about my result?

A Tarrytown Pharmacist is available to discuss positive and negative results.

Rapid Antigen Test

  • Antigen tests are immunoassays that detect the presence of a specific viral antigen, which implies current viral infection. Antigen tests are currently authorized to be performed on nasopharyngeal or nasal swab specimens placed directly into the assay’s extraction buffer or reagent.
  • Rapid antigen tests perform best when the person is tested in the early stages of infection with SARS-CoV-2 when viral load is generally highest. They also may be informative in diagnostic testing situations in which the person has a known exposure to a confirmed case of COVID-19.

Sample Collection Method: Antigen tests require a non-invasive nasal swab (both nostrils) to collect a proper sample for testing.

Rapid Molecular (NAAT) Test

  • Molecular tests are also known as Nucleic AcidAmplification Tests (NAAT), and are based on detection of the virus's genetic material in a sample from the patient's nose. These types of tests are described as typically highly accurate.
  • The Abbott IDNOW uses isothermal technology, proprietary enzymes and constant temperature control to achieve the fastest available RNA amplification. This proven molecular system greatly reduces the time for results, allowing healthcare providers to make patient care decisions sooner.
  • Some hospitals use it to test patients before surgery.

Sample Collection Method: To conduct a test, a non-invasive swab of the nose is taken (both nostrils). Then the swab is placed into an acidic liquid solution heated to 132.8⁰ F that cracks open the envelope of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, exposing its viral RNA.

Rapid PCR Test

  • The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test for COVID-19 is a molecular test that analyzes your upper respiratory specimen, looking for genetic material (ribonucleic acid or RNA) of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
  • The PCR technology will amplify small amounts of RNA from specimens into deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), which is replicated until SARS-CoV-2 is detectable if present.
  • The PCR test has been the gold standard test for diagnosing COVID-19 since authorized for use in February 2020. It’s accurate and reliable.

PCR Tests are widely used for travel requirements, because of its accuracy.

Sample Collection Method: A non-invasive nasal swab is taken (both nostrils).
