The antibody test should be used for screening purposes only and a positive result should be confirmed by a laboratory test.
It will test for IgM and IgG antibodies.
Current data suggests that IgM antibodies against SARS-COV-2 develop in the circulation after the first week of COVID-19, while IgG antibodies become detectable sometime beyond 14 days of infrction.
As a result, detection of specific antibodies against SARS-COV-2 would suggest that a person has been infected with the virus recntly or at some time in the past.
2. Nasal swab PCR lab test.
The collection charge is $45.
The test is sent to the lab and will test for active Covid-19. The lab will bill your insurance for the test and you mant not owe a balance. Self pay patients will recieve a bill for $100 but will be reduced to $49 if you pay right away.
Results are usually 24-48 hours but could be longer.
3. Instant antigen test.
The cost is $99. No doctor referral required.
This COVID-19 test detects certain proteins in the virus. Using a long nasal swab or throat swab to get a fluid sample, antigen tests can produce results in minutes. Because these tests are faster and less expensive than PCR tests, antigen tests may be more practical to use for large numbers of people.
