COVID-19 & Other Test Results
Thank you for choosing AFC Urgent Care. We offer many different kinds of testing at our facility. There are two major categories of test- lab and point of care (POC).
Lab tests (throat & urine cultures, stool, blood tests, STD, etc) are sent to Quest, our independent 3rd party laboratory provider. We merely collect the sample at our facility.
You may obtain results for Quest tests here: https://www.questdiagnostics.com/patients/test-results
We do NOT call the patient if the result of a lab test is negative- you must obtain them online at Quest's website. Please do not call the facility for these results.
POINT OF CARE TESTING
POC tests (rapid antigen, rapid PCR, flu, strep, mono, urinalysis, pregnancy, glucose, etc) are performed and resulted at our location, in most cases while the patient is onsite. POC results must be obtained before leaving the facility.
We offer multiple kinds of COVID-19 tests- both lab and POC.

Each test has different purposes- however, all PCR tests below are true RT-PCR:
- Accula RT-PCR | $179: this is meant for patients that need to obtain timely, accurate results for travel, return to work or return to school. This testing is not covered by insurance. Results are available within 30-45 minutes. Please obtain results before leaving the facility- we cannot email them.
- Rapid Antigen | $59: this is not as accurate as a PCR but is suitable for most purposes. Results are available within 15-20 minutes. This test is covered by insurance when ordered by a medical provider. Patients can also pay for this test without needing to see a provider if testing is for a non-covered reason. Please obtain results before leaving the facility- we cannot email them.
- Quest PCR: this test is covered by insurance when ordered by a medical provider. Patient must see a provider for this test. Results typically take 24-72 hours (from the time the sample is sent to the lab) but may take longer. We do NOT call for negative results- please obtain them directly from the lab here: https://www.questdiagnostics.com/patients/test-results
