If you suspect you have coronavirus and have not yet been screened for COVID-19 by a provider, visit on your smart phone or computer 24/7 to have a virtual visit with a provider.

Pre-screening is necessary before accessing a COVID-19 testing site.

Remember to only go to our Emergency Rooms if you have an emergency – our ERs are NOT doing public testing.

Getting your test done in the emergency room will result in additional facility and physician fees. If you think you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, the online screening tool helps direct you to the right care and resources including our telehealth app BayCareAnywhere®, COVID-19 Nurse Triage (available weekdays) and drive-thru testing sites (also open on weekdays).

Drive-Through Testing Centers

BayCare’s drive-thru sites serve patients with a doctor’s referral or those who are symptomatic in order to reserve limited testing supplies for those who are most at risk. Individuals who show up at a drive-thru site without a doctor’s referral are screened based on guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Those who meet criteria have a specimen collected for testing.

For patients without insurance, the cost of the COVID-19 lab test is $85. Payment is not due at testing. BayCare is working with governmental agencies to secure funding for patients that are unable to pay for testing. For more information about financial assistance, email or call (855) 233-1555.

For patients with insurance, the Federal government has noted that all payors should ensure that these tests are covered for all insurance plans. Please contact your insurance company for additional information.
