Aside from getting tested from my primary care provider or a state site (LHI.care/covidtesting), do I have other options?
Yes! There are other options community members can use.  The options below do not require a physician referral but you must call or sign up for an appointment slot. 

1.)  CVS Minute Clinic
CVS is offering free testing to community members.  All you have to do is go to their website linked here (CVS Minute Clinic) type in your zip code and the website will offer the closest minute clinic near you.  Follow the onscreen instructions to set your appointment today!

2.)  Verily Baseline COVID-19 Program
California has partnered with Verily, like their partnership with OptumServe, to provide free and confidential testing. 
    a.) You will first have to complete their online screening process here using a Google Account.
    b.) If you are determined to be eligible, you will receive information on how and where to get tested.

What if the testing sites around me do not have an available appointment in the near future?
You can go to any testing site in the state; check if a neighboring county has available appointments. If you need to get tested because of an urgent manner, it is recommended that you get tested through your primary care provider for faster results.

Who can get tested?
The appointment-only walk-through testing sites are open to anyone in the community, including agricultural workers, the homeless, undocumented individuals, and residents.

Are there costs associated for testing?
There is no cost for COVID-19 testing for the patient. If an individual has medical insurance, OptumServe will bill the patient's medical insurance company, and the insurance company will cover the testing fees. Uninsured individuals will have their tests paid for by the state.
