  • Chills or fever
  • Congestion/runny nose
  • Fatigue
  • Cough
  • Diarrhea
  • A sore throat
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Headache

  • DispatchHealth is in-network with most insurance and typically costs the same as an urgent care visit. On average our patients pay between $5-$50. There are no additional fees for COVID-19 lab tests. Still have questions? Grab your insurance card and give us a call.
  • DispatchHealth’s prices are competitive with conventional urgent care facilities and cost 80-90% less than an ER. If you do not have insurance or would like to self-pay, the flat rate for a visit is $275. This includes medications administered, procedures performed, and any lab tests obtained.
  • *Georgia Patients: At this time, we are only able to offer COVID-19 tests for patients that have an in-network insurance plan.
  • DispatchHealth administers either the RT- PCR test or a lateral flow antigen test. Thin nasal swabs are quickly inserted into the patient’s nose to collect the specimen. These testing methods are the most widely used laboratory methods for detecting the COVID-19 virus.
  • The results will be delivered to you either in-person or by phone depending on the test administered and the turnaround time for that particular test.
  • If you’ve shared your primary care physician (PCP) with us, we will forward the results to them as well.
  • Yes. We treat everything an urgent care can, and more. Our medical team arrives at your home with all the equipment and protective gear needed to treat common to complex injuries and illnesses during this crisis.
  • We come to you in protective gear and with fully sanitized equipment. For patients with respiratory and/or COVID-19 symptoms our teams also wear N95 respirator masks, gowns, gloves and shoe covers. Your safety is our focus.
  • Patients who are tested for COVID-19 should self-isolate until they receive results. If the test is positive, we will refer patients to public health authorities to make sure they continue to get care. All positive test results will be “presumed” positive until confirmed by the CDC or state public health laboratories.
  • If you have severe symptoms, such as a high fever or severe breathing trouble, you should go to your local emergency room or call 911 for care.
  • If your child needs to be tested for COVID-19, we’ll work to make the process as smooth as possible. We test patients ages three months and older. You may want to prepare your child for the fact that the tester will be in full personal protective equipment (PPE), which may be scary for them. Explain that wearing these protective coverings helps keep everyone safe.
  • Thin nasal swabs are quickly inserted into the patient’s nose to collect the specimen. Parents may be asked to hold their child’s head during testing. Afterward, your child may cough or even have some slight nose bleeding – this is normal.
  • Please be aware that if your child is combative or resistant to the test, we will do our best to complete the test but only if it’s safe for both the tester and your child. If you have additional concerns, please let us know when making your appointment.
