Benefits of COVID-19 At-Home Testing

Covid-19 at-home tests increase access to testing while reducing the risk of spreading the virus. Enabling patients to test themselves at home protects not just healthcare staff at testing centers but the general public as well. At-home tests are FDA approved and when taken correctly are just as accurate as tests administered by nurses and doctors.

COIVD-19 At-Home Testing FAQ

Who Can Get COVID-19 At-Home Testing?

– At-home COVID-19 testing is available nationwide.

– We recommend testing for those who meet CDC testing criteria in conjunction with clinical judgment.

– This includes symptomatic individuals, those with close contact with an infected individual, and those exposed to large groups of people without protection, and others.

– Ultimately it is up to your doctor to determine if you are a good candidate for COVID-19 at-home testing.

How Will I Get My Test Kit?

– You will receive a confirmation email from PlushCare once your kit is ordered. You will also receive tracking information from FedEx.

How Do I Administer My COVID-19 At-Home Test?

– The COVID-19 at-home test is administered via a painless lower nasal swab.

– You will collect your sample by swabbing the inside of your nose (in the tip of the nostril, not a deep nasal swab).

– All necessary materials will be provided, including detailed instructions and all the equipment necessary to take a nasal swab, store the sample, and return via a nearby dropbox on the same day you self administer the test.

– If you have questions about how to administer the at-home test, you can message our care-team in the PlushCare app for free.

How Accurate Are At-Home COVID-19 Tests?

– In order to ensure your sample is as accurate as possible, closely follow all provided instructions regarding collecting and storing your sample.

How Much Does At-Home COVID-19 Testing Cost?

– In nearly all cases at-home COVID tests are covered by insurance.

– To ensure you will not be charged for at-home testing, contact your insurance company to learn their policy.

– For those without insurance, an at-home test costs $125.

What if My Kit is Lost or Damaged in the Mail?

– If your testing kit is lost or damaged in the mail, you will not be charged.

– Please email [email protected] and we can help you to reorder another kit.

What About Antibody Testing?

– Antibody testing is a blood test that can identify COVID-19 exposure (as opposed to an active COVID-19 infection).

– This test is not for people currently experiencing symptoms, you must be symptom free for 10 days before you can get antibody testing.

– PlushCare is offering appointments for patients requesting antibody testing.

– Antibody testing cannot be done at home because it is a blood test.
