Now Open: Drive-Through Covid-19 Coronavirus Testing
Remedy is excited to announce the opening of our first drive-through testing center for patients with Covid-19 coronavirus and influenza-like illness (ILI) symptoms. The facility is located in South Austin, near Sunset Valley. Planned daily hours are 8AM-8PM, in order to match Remedy’s normal urgent care house calls hours, which are still available in addition to 24/7 Video Visits.
The Drive-Through option is designed as a safe and convenient way to help support testing for those suspecting a covid-19 coronavirus infection.
The unique Open Air Clinic is a necessity borne out of a need to continue providing urgent care for those who need it, but can’t visit a traditional brick and mortar clinic option for fear of exposure to covid-19 coronavirus, a common and growing concern among those that need time-sensitive, but not emergency, medical care.
How To Get Tested
Due to ongoing, global constraints around testing supplies, and in accordance with CDC and Austin Public Health guidelines, all potential patients must first book a 24/7 Video Visit, where our providers will assess and diagnose. If further testing is recommended, patients will prioritized and directed to the new testing center with an appointment time, and provided further instructions for how to proceed.
Important – due to the current global supply shortages with testing equipment, federal testing guidelines have recommended specific guidance for our teams in the use of testing. As such, booking a visit does not guarantee a referral for testing.
Please note – this is by appointment only, and not a “first come, first serve” process.
Payment & Insurance
Remedy is in-network with most major insurers + Medicare.
For those uninsured, the video-visit cost is a flat rate of $49. Additional costs for the labs vary based on availability of testing supplies and the laboratory used. Currently, the total cost can range from $65 – 75.
Remedy has always been committed to delivering care in whatever way is safest and most convenient. We’re eager to keep serving in this new capacity for as long as our neighbors need it.
