COVID-19 Testing Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to receive my results?

On average you will receive your results in 2-3 days. However, testing may take longer if there are COVID-19 outbreaks across the state.

How will I receive my results?

A member of your PCHC care team will call you directly. We ask that those awaiting results DO NOT call for test results. This will help keep our phone lines open to assist our patients.

Is there a cost associated with my test?

There is no cost for the test itself so long as it is sent to the state lab (HETL), however, if the test is processed at ALI or another independent lab, there may be a fee associated with it.

Also if you are symptomatic, PCHC requires you to be seen by a provider and there will be a cost associated with the visit.

Can PCHC help with testing pertaining to schooling?

While there are circumstances where PCHC can administer a test for someone that is returning to school, we ask that a parent or guardian or an appropriately-aged student, reach out to the school first, as many have already developed protocols for administering testing.

Can I just show up to receive a COVID-19 test?

No. PCHC requires anyone seeking a COVID-19 test to call ahead and get scheduled. This will help make the testing experience as quick and efficient as possible.
