Fees & Insurance

Our mission is to provide comprehensive, reliable, high-quality PCR testing for as little as possible. We are doing the best we can! Most policies holders only carry a processing fee of $35.

Effective 2/1/2021: Medicaid always carries a fee of $100 for PCR and/or Antibody testing. There is no additional fee for doing both tests.


For individuals wanting to use our services, we charge a nominal $35 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. We are willing to apply the fee to another test date, however.


Austin Covid Labs offers onsite testing for local businesses that are testing a minimum of 25 people. (We may make exceptions for businesses that have multiple locations.) Fewer than that and we can still test onsite at the lab. (In other words, if you send an employee to us who has been exposed or needs an urgent test, we do not charge a processing fee.) Missed group scheduling will be assessed a $500 fee. (If the entire group forgets or management forgets the appointment; yes, this has happened!)


When we visit onsite, PPO health insurance and Uninsured carry no out of pocket cost. HMO policies carry a $35 additional fee*, and Medicaid is $100. 

*Medicaid * some HMO policies carry an $85 charge for both Antibody and PCR testing and $35 for just PCR.  Uninsured is at no cost for either or both tests.

We do send travel teams onsite to you. Enquire about rates at: business@austincovidlabs.com


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.

Rapid PCR: Our Abbott NOW Rapid PCR is $200 for all persons. There is no additional processing fee.

A PCR Molecular test required for travel is the same as all other fee categories. 

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.


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