We do perform COVID-19 testing through our reference laboratory, although your healthcare provider will need to write an order, and our staff will collect the sample. You will be provided detailed instructions for sample collection. If you have insurance coverage, there will likely be no direct cost to you, and you can enroll with Washington State Medicaid at any time. If you do not have coverage, we will work with you to make sure you are tested after receiving a provider order, regardless of ability to pay. Our Cash price for the test is $250.00, but it can be reduced to zero through our financial assistance program.
