You Can Get Tested for Covid-19
Summa Health Care is offering a nasopharyngeal aspiration test for Covid-19. If you are experiencing shortness of breath, cough or fever – your insurance might cover your test. They may also cover your test if you have been in contact with someone who tested positive for the Corona Virus.
If you are not showing symptoms but are still interested in getting tested for Covid-19, you can still be tested. You may have to pay out of pocket for your test, but you will not be turned away.
Keep in mind, Summa Health Care is a full-service, primary care center. We are open Monday through Friday providing family medicine, hormone therapy treatment and other preventive health care measures.
What is a nasopharyngeal aspiration test for Covid-19?
A nasopharyngeal aspiration test is a quick and painless culture to check for Corona Virus. Your nasal secretions will be collected by a swab in the office. There is no preparation required for this test. Afterward, your nose may feel a little irritated or have slight bleeding. These symptoms should not last long.
When will I get test results back for Covid-19?
If you choose to have a nasopharyngeal aspiration test taken at Summa Health Care, you can expect results of the test back in 5-7 days.
