COVID-19 Rapid Testing

COVID-19 Rapid Testing

AFC Urgent Care Boulder is now performing Abbott ID NOW COVID-19 diagnostic swab tests as well as rapid antigen tests seven days a week with same-day results. The ID NOW Test is a molecular test that can provide results within the same DAY, unlike the standard PCR test. The rapid test is available under emergency use authorization from the FDA.

Rapid diagnostic testing for COVID-19 is available to patients seven days a week in Boulder serving all of Boulder County. If you have recently been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, wait between 5-7 days for testing in order to capture a more accurate result. Rapid testing and standard PCR testing is performed by appointments.

Rapid COVID-19 Testing FAQs:

Q. What is a Rapid COVID-19 Test?

A. A Rapid COVID-19 test is an antigen or molecular test that detects active COVID-19 in a patient. Rapid tests can determine if you are actively sick with the virus and contagious to others.

Q. How does Rapid COVID Testing Work?

A. A swab is used to take a sample from the back of your nose that is then analyzed for determining an active COVID-19 infection. The process takes a few minutes to complete. Antigen test results are faster than PCR tests, but less accurate.

Q. What should I do if I have a positive result?

A. Stay home and begin quarantining from others. Do not go outside unless for medical emergency or other medical reasons. If you have been in contact with others, let them know you have tested positive for COVID.

Q. What should I do if I have a negative test?

A. Continue maintaining distance between others and wear a mask when in public. Wash your hands frequently. If you are experiencing symptoms, you may have been tested too early and should get tested again. If you receive a negative antigen test, it may be recommended to send out a PCR test to ensure accuracy.

Q. Is rapid COVID-19 testing covered by insurance?

A. Rapid COVID tests are only covered by certain insurances and depend on your policy. PCR tests are covered by most major insurances.

Q. Are there other types of COVID-19 testing available?

A. AFC Louisville & Boulder offers antigen and molecular rapid tests for patients experiencing symptoms, and antibody testing.

Q. Where can I get rapid COVID-19 testing near Louisville?

A. AFC Urgent Care Boulder offers rapid testing for all patients near Louisville, Boulder, Superior, and Broomfield, CO. Schedule your rapid test with us today.

AFC Urgent Care FAQs

  • Why does AFC provide two different COVID tests?

    We offer a rapid test because they provide highly reliable results on the spot; however, they do produce more false negatives than the RT-PCR COVID-19 Test. Doing both tests is our way of ensuring that you get the most accurate results possible without having to put your life on hold.

  • How long does it take to get a COVID test?

    We're able to get many patients in and out in a matter of minutes, but the length of time you'll spend in our clinic will depend on wait times that day.

  • How much does it cost to get a COVID test?

    That will ultimately depend on your insurance coverage. Presently, many people with insurance are able to get tested at no charge. If you’re uninsured, AFC’s cash pay prices are highly competitive – contact us for the details.
