The Washington Travel Clinic is capable of testing for SARS-CoV-2 (coronavirus). The test consists of a nasal or oral swab that is sent for processing by PCR at Quest Diagnostics. Processing times average 3 to 4 days (these are estimates and are not guarantees). We can also test for prior exposure to the virus via a blood test for antibodies that is 100% sensitive and 99% specific.
There are office fees and lab fees.
Swab test only: $100.
Blood test only: $100
Swab and blood test: $135
The lab (Quest) will bill your insurance carrier for the test itself. If you are uninsured, Quest will bill you for $95 for the swab test and $55 for the blood test.
