SARS-CoV-2 COVID-19 Antibody Test
The COVID-19 Antibody Test available at Covid Clinic test collection sites detects the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 (AKA COVID-19) antibodies in the patient’s blood. This test has Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA. Data published on the FDA’s website suggests this test has specificity of 99.8% and sensitivity of 99.5% when ≥ 14 days post PCR confirmation of prior COVID-19 infection. Results are generally available within two to five days, and will be communicated to the patient.
COVID Clinic’s service includes pre-test screening, specimen collection, presentation of results, and a post-result telemedicine consultation with a Covid Clinic healthcare professional.
Testing specimens collected at COVID Clinic are sent to third-party laboratories for processing. These laboratories will bill the patient’s insurance for their services. Covid Clinic strongly encourages all patients to provide any insurance information so patients may be able to avoid being billed directly by the laboratory processing the patient’s specimen. If a patient is uninsured the third-party lab processing the specimen may attempt to collect public funding in lieu of billing the patient.
