IS THERE A COST FOR BEING TESTED AT THE DRIVE-THRU SITES?
  • When you sign up for an appointment you will be asked to provide your insurance information. The lab will bill your insurance for the cost of the test. Under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act insurance companies are required to cover medically necessary testing. We encourage you to review your own insurance coverage, especially if you are being tested for non-medical reasons, such as travel. Northwest Labs may reach out to you to verify insurance information or collect additional information needed for billing.
  • If you do not have health insurance you can still sign up for an appointment, you will not be billed for the cost of the test.
