Current Tests Offered:

Rapid PCR Testing: ( ✅  Insurance Accepted*)

  • Cost: $250
  • Results Available: 4 hours
  • FDA Compliance: Our tests have received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the FDA

Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests detect genetic material (ribonucleic acid or RNA) of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.  The PCR test has been the gold standard test for diagnosing COVID-19 because it is an accurate and reliable test. This test is administered as a nasopharyngeal swab.

Rapid Antigen Testing: ( ✅  Insurance Accepted*)

  • Cost: $75
  • Results Available: 15-20 minutes
  • FDA Compliance: Our tests have received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the FDA

Antigen COVID-19 tests detect proteins from the virus. Antigen tests are very specific for the virus, but are not as sensitive as molecular tests. This means that a positive result is highly accurate, but a negative result does not rule out infection. This test is administered as a nasal swab.

Respiratory Panel – PCR Testing: (Insurance Accepted*)

  • Cost: $300
  • Results Available: 4 hours
  • FDA Compliance: Our tests have received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the FDA

Respiratory illnesses like the common cold, flu, or even COVID-19 can have similar symptoms – runny nose, coughing, sneezing, congestion, headache, fever, and fatigue. These illnesses require different treatments – depending on whether they’re caused by bacteria or viruses. This RT-PCR Panel tests for the following pathogens, including COVID-19: Adenovirus, Coronavirus 229E, Coronavirus HKU1, Coronavirus NL63, Coronavirus OC43, Human Metapneumovirus, Human Rhinovirus/Enterovirus, Influenza A, Influenza A/H1, Influenza A/H3, Influenza A/H1-2009, Influenza B, Parainfluenza Virus, Respiratory Syncytial Virus, Bordetella pertussis, Bordetella parapertussis, Chlamydia pneumoniae, and Mycoplasma pneumoniae. This test is administered as a nasopharyngeal swab.

Antibody Testing: (Insurance Not Accepted)

  • Cost: $125
  • Results Available: 48-72 hours
  • FDA Compliance: Our tests have received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the FDA

The serology (blood) test measures the level of antibodies in people who have been exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, including those who have received COVID-19 vaccines. This test determines what level or how much of the COVID-19 antibodies an individual has produced. The test is performed by Boston Medical Diagnostics.

For optimal results, individuals are encouraged to wait at least three weeks following an infection or a vaccination before having an antibody test. The antibodies increase significantly within three weeks after the first injection, and the values are considerably higher after the second dose.

Yes, Strada Healthcare is offering testing to the general public, as well as employer groups that directly contract with us.

Do you accept insurance?*

Insurance billing is available for participants who have been in recent contact with a COVID-19 individual or who are currently experiencing COVID-like symptoms.  Insurance may not deem the test as medically necessary if you are not currently experiencing symptoms or been in contact with a COVID-19 patient; therefore, we ask that you pay out of pocket for your test.

Submission of your insurance information to us does not guarantee that the insurance company will cover the cost of the testing. If your insurance company does not cover the cost of the test it will be your responsibility to cover the cost of the test.

We do not accept Medicare, Medicaid, or Tricare insurance.
