Frequently Asked Questions
Is there an out of pocket cost?
Most will not have any out of pocket cost. There should be no out of pocket cost if any of the following apply to you:
- You are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19
- You have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19
- You are in a high-risk group (diabetic, immunocompromised, etc.)
You will be asked for your health insurance information when registering for an appointment. If you do not have insurance, we will ask you for your Social Security number and your driver's license/state ID to submit the cost of your test to the federal program for the uninsured.
If none of the above criteria apply to you, there may be a charge of $100 per test.*
*If you are being tested at the Grand Rapids location, there will be no cost to you.
Do I need an appointment?
Yes, all tests should be scheduled ahead of time to minimize your wait and collection time. Drive/Walk In testing may be available on a very limited basis, but it is not guaranteed.
Multiple people in my household need to get tested. Should I make an appointment for each person?
Yes, every individual who is being tested needs to have an appointment made for them. If there is not enough availability, schedule their appointment for later in the same day or the next day and we will do our best to accommodate everyone at the earliest appointment time.
Should I arrive early for my appointment?
No, there is no need to arrive early for your appointment.
Do I need to self-quarantine?
If you have symptoms of COVID-19, or have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, you should self-quarantine according to CDC guidance. If you are symptomatic and awaiting your test results, members of your household should also consider themselves at risk of exposure.
What test is performed?
NxGen MDx uses a PCR test which looks for active infections only. At this time we do not administer antibody tests which indicate whether a patient had an infection in the past.
Does this test detect the new COVID-19 B.1.1.7 variant?
Yes, the NxGen MDx PCR test does detect this variant of COVID-19. This variant was first identified in September 2020 in the United Kingdom. Currently there is no evidence to suggest that the variant has any impact on the severity of the disease or the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccine.
How is the sample collected?
You will be given a nasal swab and asked to self-collect nasal secretions. A staff member will be on site to walk you through the process. Please note that you must be able to administer your own swab or bring someone that can do it for you. For minor children, a parent or guardian can administer the swab or, if needed, our nurse onsite can administer it.
How and when will I receive my results?
You will receive your results via the email that you provided at the time of registration. These results should arrive within 24 to 48 hours of your sample being received at the lab (which is at the end of the day that your sample was collected). If you do not receive your results, please check your spam/junk folder for your results before contacting NxGen MDx about them.
