REVAMP – Services -Covid-19 Testing
Escalera Health offers drive-thru swab testing (UTM/E-Swab) for COVID-19.
Monday – Friday 7:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Appointments are not needed
Drive-thru tests are conducted in the South parking lot of the clinic with cars entering from the East and parking in line at the testing tent. A health care provider will come out to the car, ask for a brief focused medical history, and administer a nasal swab sample. This testing process takes approximately 10 minutes total.
We will reach out by phone within 3-5 business days with the test results and medical treatment options if necessary.
Patients with contracted insurance plans will have no cost for the test. Escalera Health will bill directly through your insurance provider. Self-pay options are available to patients without insurance, social security number is required.
Antibody testing is performed inside the clinic, by appointment only. A blood sample is drawn to determine if past infection with the Covid-19 causing virus is present. We will reach out by phone with the results within 2-3 business days.
Antibody tests do not detect current Covid-19 infections, as it can take 1–3 weeks for your body to make antibodies.
