Sonora Quest Laboratories now offers observed nasal swab self-collections options based on symptom status. Patients who have COVID-19 symptoms or recent exposure can schedule “COVID-19 – Symptoms/Exposure (Carside)” appointments at select Patient Service Center locations. Beginning November 18, 2020, patients without symptoms or exposure can schedule “COVID-19 – (No Symptoms – Confirm Negative Status)” appointments, which will be available at most Sonora Quest Patient Service Centers.
Insurance and demographic information to ensure patient coverage for COVID-19 testing varies based upon the party ordering the test and the insurance status of the patient. Please review our COVID-19 (Diagnostic/Antibody) Coverage Matrix for information regarding billing information required and coverage limitations under the different scenarios in which COVID-19 testing may be ordered. Please note, self-ordered testing through My Lab ReQuest for Antibody testing requires pre-payment from the patient prior to services.
Sonora Quest Laboratories is monitoring the situation closely, and is committed to helping you provide the best care for your patients. Our priority is the health and safety of our employees, patients, and the communities we serve.
