Coronavirus Pre-Screening Authorization Form
If you are symptomatic or, you have been in direct contact with an individual that is positive, your COVID test can be billed through your insurance. If you do not have insurance, you may qualify for coverage under the CARES Act.
To get started, you will “schedule an appointment” through the On Demand Occupational Medicine web portal. Provide the details about your insurance provider, including the policy number, group ID number, and if applicable, the primary insurance holder’s name, address, phone number, and date of birth.
When you arrive at On Demand you will provide a form of identification and receive an exam from an On Demand physician, physician assistant or a nurse practitioner.
A trained healthcare professional will guide you through the swabbing process. The swab collection may be performed using a nasopharyngeal swab.
Nasopharyngeal Swab: This method of testing is performed by having you tilt your head back while a trained healthcare member inserts a sterile cotton swab into your nostril towards the back of your nose. The swab will be inserted to a depth about the distance from your outer nose to the outer opening of the ear. Once inserted, it will be held in place for a few seconds then slowly removed with mild rotation. This may cause temporary discomfort.
Your sample will be coded and associated with the data you provided in your questionnaire.
Your sample will be express shipped to a clinical laboratory to determine if your sample is either positive or negative for SARS-CoV2.
Within 24-72 hours your lab results will be provided directly to you via email, text, phone call or through an app or web portal. The testing result may take a few days and results will be returned to you when available. Weekends and holidays affect these hours.
