TESTING UPDATE

Due to the overwhelming response to our antibody testing program, we have enlisted the services of Labcorp to assist in addressing the voluminous test requests that our program is generating. Our members now have the choice of using Accurate Diagnostic or Labcorp for sample collection points.

The process remains the same, call one of the providers, schedule an appointment and once the provider has issued a prescription for the test, use one of our testing partners for your blood draw you must have Insurance and ID in order to have the test and screening with no cost share.

Members can find locations and hours of operation at www.labcorp.com, Click on Labs & Appointments.  In this section, they can type in their location to find the nearest lab.

Labcorp also has a program that allows patients to check in and wait in their car (see the attached link under The “Wait Where You’re Comfortable” Program) - https://www.labcorp.com/coronavirus-disease-covid-19/patient-information/patient-service-center-initiatives.

If the Doctors are writing for a RNA or test that requires a swab, Labcorp cannot accommodate them, they can either go to one of the testing sites throughout the state or go to one of the three Accurate sites in Edison, Linden or Cranford.

Both labs would also like me remind you that they only would like asymptomatic patients to go to their service centers.
