Urgent Care centers offering Rapid COVID-19 PCR Tests 

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® 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.

Select Urgent Care Locations Offer Rapid COVID-19 PCR (LIAT) Testing for Business & Summer Travel

As many testing sites across Tampa Bay beginning to close, select BayCare’s Urgent Care centers are offering an effective and reliable rapid test that can detect both COVID-19 and the flu. The test is available to asymptomatic people wishing to confirm they are negative for COVID-19 before traveling or visiting loved ones.  This PCR (LIAT) test is approved for most airlines and most travel destinations, however, it is the patient’s responsibility to check the regulations and test requirements needed for your destination.*

This service will offer a real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) that detects both flu and COVID-19 with the same reliability as a lab-based test. Patients may receive test results in 30 minutes on-site.  Due to limited supply, the RT-PCR will be available on a reservation basis. Reservations can be made using the Save Your Spot tool. The test will not be billed to insurance but will be available as a self-pay service at a cost of $150.

*At this time, this testing isn't approved for travel to Hawaii.
