South Portland COVID-19 Testing at AFC Urgent Care

COVID-19 Diagnostic Testing

At AFC Urgent Care we are committed to delivering COVID-19 testing more efficiently than any other testing site so you can get the care you need or the peace of mind you seek.

Whether you are experiencing symptoms, have had a close contact or simply need COVID-19 testing for travel, just walk-in 7 days a week.


Types of Testing We Offer:

In-House Rapid Molecular NAAT Testing:

AFC Urgent Care utilizes the Abbott ID Now machine to perform rapid molecular COVID-19 testing with results available in approximately 20 minutes to an hour. This test is also known as a nucleic acid amplification test.

Send-Out RT-PCR Testing:

For those who wish to have, or are required to have, PCR testing AFC Urgent utilizes Quest Diagnostics. Because this is a send-out lab, we can’t guarantee when results will return. Generally, results return in 1-2 days, however, during busier holiday times, they can take as long as 3-5 days to return.

New! In-House Rapid RT-PCR Testing:

This test is available for travel testing only and for those age 5 and older. AFC Urgent Care utilizes the Accula device to perform rapid RT-PCR testing in our own lab with results available same day. This is the perfect solution for when RT-PCR testing is required for travel as you can rest assured you will have the results in hand the day you test.


What is the Cost of Testing?

Testing for patients with symptoms or a known exposure to a close contact:
Most insurance carriers will cover the cost of the testing with no financial responsibility being assigned to the patient. For those without insurance, the cost of the test is $170 which will be due at the time of service.

Testing for patients who wish to travel:
AFC Urgent Care is unable to bill to insurance. Cost of testing is $170/test for a Rapid Molecular NAAT test or Send-Out RT-PCR test and $190/test for an In-House Rapid RT-PCR test. Payment is due at the time of service.


When Will My Results Be Available?

In-House Rapid Molecular NAAT Testing: Results available in under an hour. You can pick them up or access them through our secure portal.

Send-Out PCR Testing: Generally, results return in 1-2 days, however, during busier holiday times, they can take as long as 3-5 days to return. A Medical Assistant will call you with your results and you will also be given instructions on how can access your results directly through the Quest website.

In-House Rapid PCR Testing: Results will be available same day. You can pick them up or access them through our secure portal.

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 your local clinic for the details.
