How to Submit Your Test to Insurance
Spence's Medical Center Pharmacy will not submit claims to insurance, and it is the responsibility of the patient/customer to submit the required paperwork to the respective insurance company. Spence's Medical Center Pharmacy provides the information needed by most insurance companies. This can be requested by emailing email@example.com after you receive your results.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
1. How much does the test cost?
- COVID-19 Antigen + Flu: $125 cash-only per test
- COVID-19 Antigen only: $100 cash-only per test
2. Can you bill my insurance?
No, medical and prescription insurances cannot be billed by our pharmacy and this is an out-of-pocket test.
However, patients may submit a manual claim to their medical insurance for possible reimbursement, after their test. This will be the responsibility of the patient, and not Spence’s Medical Center Pharmacy. The pharmacy does provide the necessary information to submit the insurance, and that information is included in our official pdf results document that is available upon request.
3. How long will it take to get the results?
You will receive the results within 15 minutes of your sample collection, but the whole process (including proper documentation) should take about 30 minutes.
4. Who is administering the test?
For the protection of our customers and staff, we require customers to swab themselves to get the sample, while under the direct supervision of a pharmacist at your carside. The process is very easy and painless, only needing to swab the inside of the nostril for 15 seconds on each side.
5. How will my results be sent to me?
We will send your results (signed by a pharmacist) via email. Upon request, we can also give a physical copy of your results.
6. What ages do you offer the test for?
We currently offer the test for patients ages 5 and over. We are working on being able to offer the test on younger patients, and will notify customers when available for younger patients.
7. What is the accuracy of the COVID-19 rapid antigen test?
The manufacturer of the test we use lists the Positive Percent Agreement (PPA) as 86.7% (CI 75.8-93.1%) and the Negative Percent Agreement as 99.5%.
For influenza A & B, PPA/NPA is 100%.
8. Do you offer business, group, or special event COVID-19 testing?
We are offering a 10% discount for groups, businesses, or special events of 10 or more people. Call and talk to the pharmacist for more information, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
9. Will a negative test be acceptable for travel purposes?
- Guidelines and requirements for travel change frequently and are always evolving. We highly recommend that you check, with your desired destination for guidance, BEFORE your trip and booking a testing appointment, if a certain type of test is required. We offer only the antigen rapid test, which may suffice for your travel destination. Always check to make sure the test you order will be accepted.
10. What do I do about my positive result? Negative result?
If you test positive, you should continue to self-isolate in order to limit the spread of infection to others. The pharmacist may offer antivirals (once available) in order to treat an active COVID-19 infection. Regardless of your test results, we offer over-the-counter medications to treat any symptoms you may be experiencing (cough, fever, sore throat, congestion, etc.).
