How To Get Tested for COVID-19
Testing for Current Infection or Previous Exposure
We are taking all precautions to keep our campus community—including patients and employees—safe. A facemask is required upon entering the clinic. Your safety and health are our priorities as we help you.
For at-risk populations and those who prefer to stay at home, telehealth appointments are also available, allowing you access to a provider over the phone.
Moffitt Health Center is Offering 2 Ways to Test for COVID-19
Swab Test: This test is FDA approved and performed with a swab of your nasal passages to determine if you currently have an active COVID-19 infection. Most results are available in 1-3 days. You will be billed an office visit (either through your insurance or self-pay). The cost of your test will be billed to your insurance if you have coverage.
Antibody Blood Test: This FDA approved test determines if you have antibodies to COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2 IgG). This test can show previous infection or exposure to the disease. Most results are available in 1-2 days. You will be billed an office visit (either through your insurance or self-pay). The cost of your test will be billed to your insurance if you have coverage.
