It is the patient’s responsibility to select the correct test type. SDxLabs will bill Medicare, Medicaid, or 3rd party insurance for those experiencing symptoms or those who have been in contact with someone who has/suspected to have COVID-19. Patients who are not symptomatic or have not come into contact with a known or suspected COVID case, are testing for events or travel, are testing for other reasons, or need customizations made to their result report, should select a self-pay option.
*Patients with insurance should not have any out-of-pocket costs for a covered COVID-19 test, but you should check with your health plan to confirm.
