Fees & Insurance

Our mission is to provide comprehensive, reliable, high-quality PCR testing for as little as possible. We only charge a processing fee of $35.**

Austin Covid Labs offers onsite testing for businesses who are testing a minimum of 25 people. Fewer than that and we can still test onsite at the lab. If people have health insurance* or are uninsured, the tests are covered and there is no out of pocket to you.

*Medicaid, HMO & Scott & White policies carry an $85 charge for both Antibody and PCR testing and $35 for just PCR. 

  **For individuals wanting to use our services, we charge a nominal $35 booking & processing fee. Please understand that testing is in great demand. Rather than have you wait for over an hour to get a test, we schedule appointments to respect your time. If you schedule and pay this fee, please note that it will not be refunded. Demand exceeds supply, and if you miss your appointment, that means someone else was not able to take it.

The cost for all testing onsite is a $35 fee processing fee.* If you have one of the excluded categories above, there is just ONE $35 fee for PCR testing.

PCR Molecular Testing:


Persons who are uninsured qualify for PCR Molecular testing through the CARES Act Federal assistance program. ($35 processing fee still applies)

Private pay: PCR Molecular testing is $200. There is no additional processing fee.


A PCR Molecular test required for travel is $250. There is no additional processing fee.

Rapid PCR: Our Abbott NOW Rapid PCR is $250 for all persons. There is no additional processing fee.

Antibody Testing:

Private pay: Antibody testing is covered by insurance or the Federal uninsured program. But if you prefer to pay directly, the cost is $50.

Employer On-Site Fees may depend upon the number of employees and travel distance required. We do not charge for on-site testing if there are 25 or more people being tested. We do however need to charge $35 for PCR for HMO, Scott & White, Tricare, and Medicaid employees and $50 for antibody testing. Missed group scheduling will be assessed a $500 fee. (If the entire group forgets or management forgets the appointment; yes, this has happened!)


We accept payment from insurance, with a $35 administrative fee to cover shipping, PPE and staff.
