  • Travel Testing: Travel testing is generally not covered by health insurance companies, so most travel testing will need to be private pay (cash or credit card). You can check with your insurance carrier to see if travel testing can be reimbursed.  
We guarantee that travel test results will be available within 24 hours, and results are often available on the same day.   

Additional Fees:

We offer competitive pricing for travel testing, and our report has the QR code needed for travel to more restrictive locations like Egypt and the UAE.

FAQ: What about the laboratories that are advertising free travel testing?  

A: We can only bill within the guidelines provided to us by the insurance carriers. Those offering free testing may have a larger volume and can write off a loose, Or they may be billing insurance against their guidelines.
