Drive-Up COVID-19 Testing at Ivinson
On Monday, June 29, Ivinson Memorial Hospital began offering drive-up COVID-19 and antibody testing to the public.
Located in the patient parking garage on Willett Drive, the drive-up testing site is available Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“We are excited to be able to offer a convenient and reliable testing option to our community,” Chief Operating Officer Holly Zajic said. “Healthcare that is easy, safe and accessible is more important to patients than ever before. With the implementation of drive-up testing, we are able to provide patients with peace of mind from the safety of their own vehicle.”
How do I get tested?
To get started, call us at (307) 755‑4355 and pre-register. Drive-up testing is available to anyone, no provider order required.
Where do I go?
Drive-up testing is located on the north side of the hospital, on Willett Drive. Signs are posted to guide patients through the testing process. We ask that those wanting to be tested to please wear a mask and remain in their vehicles the entire time.
When you arrive at the testing site, you will be asked for your information before being guided to an available testing station.
What kind of tests are available?
Ivinson is offering two different drive-up test options:
- A nasal swab (PCR) test which is administered through the nasal passage. This test is to determine if a person currently has the COVID-19 virus.
- An antibody test which requires a blood draw. This test is to determine if a person was exposed to COVID-19 and now has antibodies.
How much is a test?
- Out of pocket costs for a nasal swab test is $94.
- Out of pocket costs for an antibody test is $100.
Is COVID-19 testing covered by my insurance?
Many insurance providers will cover COVID-19 and antibody testing, but you should check on the details for your insurance plan.
