Many people are interested in testing for COVID-19 out of concern for themselves and their loved ones. If you have trouble breathing or feel very ill, contact your healthcare provider or, in case of emergency, call 911. Healthcare providers may decide to have you first tested for other illnesses, like the flu, based on your possible exposure history and any other symptoms you might have. Also see this Brief Guide on COVID-19 Testing for answers to many common questions about the testing process.
Call before you go. If you have flu-like symptoms or have reason to think you might have COVID-19, let your healthcare provider know before you visit. This will help avoid exposing anyone else at the provider’s facility.
If you have health insurance: Contact your health insurer or visit the Department of Consumer and Business Services website.
If you don’t have health insurance: If you do not have health insurance, you should apply for OHP coverage, which fully covers the cost of getting tested for COVID-19 if needed. If you don’t want to sign up for OHP, you can see a clinician through your county health clinic or a federally qualified health center (FQHC).
For information on what to do after you get tested, see this after testing guide.
