Swampscott COVID-19 Patient Updates at AFC Urgent Care

AFC Swampscott offers on-site Rapid PCR testing (results within an hour) as well as antigen and antibody testing. We advise that you consult with our staff to determine the most appropriate test for your symptoms and situation. Our state of the art true molecular, NAA (nucleic acid amplification) RT-PCR testing lab delivers certified results valid for international travel and travel to Hawaii, all in under an hour. We provide COVID testing at our facility located at 450 Paradise Road in Swampscott, just minutes away from Peabody, Salem & Lynn and can even offer results the very same day. Online booking is strongly encouraged but we are also accepting walk-in patients that require testing services.


Does my insurance cover testing?

Yes! COVID-19 testing is fully covered, with $0 cost to you, by all insurance plans in Massachusetts including Masshealth, Medicare and Medicaid but only if it is deemed medically necessary.

If you believe that you were exposed to COVID-19, came into close contact with a COVID-19 patient, or are exhibiting any one the following symptoms then testing in these situations will very likely be covered: sore throat, difficulty swallowing, new olfactory or taste disorder(s), nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, pneumonia, runny nose, nasal congestion, unexplained fatigue/malaise, delirium (acutely altered mental status and inattention), unexplained or increased number of falls, acute functional decline, exacerbation of chronic conditions, chills, headaches, conjunctivitis, croup, or multisystem inflammatory vasculitis in children (some of the symptoms associated with multisystem inflammatory vasculitis in children include persistent fever and a variety of symptoms that may include abdominal pain, gastrointestinal symptoms, including nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, as well as rash)


What if I want to get tested anyway for peace of mind, convenience or as a travel requirement?

If you don’t fit the medically necessary testing criteria (see above) or do not have insurance we offer very affordable rates for testing. The current pricing for testing is provided below. We strongly encourage you to discuss your condition, symptoms and reasoning for asking for testing with our staff to determine which test is most appropriate for your situation.

  • Cephid Rapid RT-PCR (45 minutes, ideal for last minute travelers or those who need immediate results) – $175
  • Broad PCR Test (24 hours) – $99
  • Rapid Antigen Testing (10 minutes) – $59
  • Antibody Testing (turn around time varies) – $110

If you need COVID-19 test results for travel out of country (or to certain other states with coronavirus related travel restrictions), we can also provide them to you. Please ensure to inquire about results and turn around times before finalizing your travel plans. It is your responsibility to check your destination’s requirements before you get tested. Many destinations, for example, will only accept a PCR test within 72 hours of travel. Some will accept it within 10 days of travel. Others will accept a rapid antigen test. We are unable to offer refunds if you order the test too soon, or order the wrong test. Our staff are unable to offer clear guidance on this as there are dozens of destinations, each of which have different and continuously changing requirements.


How to book a COVID-19 test

If you would like to book your test ahead of time on a particular time-slot of your choosing, you can visit our Online Booking System and make sure to select “COVID-19 Test" as the reason for your visit. That way you spend less time filling out paperwork when you get to the clinic for your booked time. Depending on the test recommended for you, the results should be available within the hour (for rapid testing) or in a day for antibody and PCR testing (depending on the lab). Please inquire about the current turn-around times and rest assured that we will call you as soon as your results are available. Please maintain self-isolation at home till you have received the results.

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.
