COVID-19 TESTING COST
COVID-19 Testing & Treatment available at ALL Lowcountry Urgent Care Clinics!
Lowcountry Urgent Care is participating in the CARES Act! With this Act, we are able to provide COVID Testing to all who want or need to be tested.
Over the past several weeks we have increased our capacity to provide COVID-19 testing to anyone who wants or needs to be tested.
*Testing criteria may change over time as public health needs related to COVID-19 changes. Those patients under eighteen must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
*Seek medical attention immediately if you experience severe shortness of breath, continuous pain, or pressure in the chest or persistent fever greater than 102°F. If at any time you feel like you are having a medical emergency, please call 911.
How is it at no cost?
We are providing COVID-19 testing to our patients by participating in the CARES Act! The CARES Act Federal program only covers noninsured individuals. If you have insurance, it is required for us to file your insurance and collect patient responsibility until your insurance claim is processed.
