Due to the rise of Coronavirus cases, there is a rising demand for tests. Many of our health centers including Albion, Brockport, and Hornell provide testing for people with and without symptoms. At the Corfu, Batavia, and Alexander locations we are testing people with symptoms who meet the criteria. All testing is by appointment only.
COVID-19 swab tests are available at our health centers outdoors to ensure safety for patients and staff, however, if you have symptoms, please call in advance for arrival instructions. Test results are typically back in 3-5 days but in some cases can take up to seven business days.
Regarding payment, we start by billing the insurance companies (co-pays may apply), and should it not be covered, we also offer a sliding fee scale discount based on family size and annual income. For questions or more information, please call (585) 637-3905 ext. 221.
And we have another alternative that’s free. The LetsGetChecked COVID-19 Self Collection Kits are for patients 18 years of age or older and can be taken home with them but are in limited supply. The kits can be used when appropriate based on current testing guidelines. The test kit comes with a UPS next day air return shipping label to send your sample back to the lab. They aim to deliver your results within 24-72 hours of your sample being received in their laboratory.
We invite everyone to explore the COVID-19 testing options available at Oak Orchard Health. For more information, please call (585) 637-3905.
