Coronavirus Testing and Antibody Testing Costs Covered

The Cares Act mandated that nearly all insurance companies cover 100% of testing related to COVID-19. This includes fees from the provider visit, the specimen collection, and laboratory test. Insured patients can expect that we will bill their insurance and that there will be no “out of pocket” expense related to testing.

Additionally, St. Vincent Health and Rocky Mountain Family Practice are part of Federal program which enables waiving of the fees mentioned above for uninsured patients.  They will be asked to provide their social security number and a Colorado state ID or driver’s license.

People without a social security number can also receive testing at SVH or RMFP because there are 120 testing kits available in Lake County from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. Those tests will be sent to the state lab for results, the office visit and collection fees will be waived.

Regardless of insurance status or ability to pay, testing is expanded now to include:

  1. Coronavirus nasal swab or nasal flush testing:  open to anyone who is sick or at the provider’s discretion.
  2. Antibody testing: open to anyone.

Call your provider for more information or to make an appointment.


Precio y Disponibilidad de las Pruebas de Coronavirus y de Anticuerpos:

La ley de CARES ordenó que casi todas las empresas de seguro médico pagan 100% de pruebas relacionado con COVID-19.  Esto incluye gastos relacionado con visitando su médico, con extraer una muestra, y con la prueba en el laboratorio. Pacientes con seguro médico pueden esperar que vamos a facturar su seguro médico y que no habrá gastos corrientes relacionado a las pruebas.


También, el hospital St. Vincent (SVH) y Rocky Mountain Family Practice (RMFP) participan en un programa federal que permite no cobrar los gastos ya mencionados a pacientes sin seguro médico. Estos pacientes tendrán que proveer su numero de seguro social y una tarjeta de identificación de Colorao o la licencia de conducir.

Personas sin un número de seguro social puede recibir una prueba en SVH o RMFP porque hay 120 pruebas disponibles en el Condado de Lake del Departamento de Salud Pública de Colorado. Esas pruebas se van a enviar al laboratorio estatal, y se van a prescindir de gastos para la visita y la muestra.

A pesar de tener seguro medico o capacidad de pagar, pruebas ahora incluye:

  1. Prueba nasal: disponible a alguien enfermo o a discreción del médico.
  2. Prueba de anticuerpos: disponible a alguien.
