We are Offering Coronavirus Testing in Cliffside Park, Bergenfield, and North Bergen, NJ
AM/PM Walk-in Urgent Care is currently offering Coronavirus testing for symptomatic patients. If you think you are experiencing Coronavirus symptoms, please make a virtual visit appointment to be pre-screened by our medical team. If we determine that you are eligible for testing following your screening, the team will provide you with additional information regarding our designated testing center and testing process. Our Coronavirus testing is available for adults and children over the age of 3. Additionally, we also perform return-to-work clearances for employees who are recovering from suspected or confirmed COVID-19 disease and were quarantined by a treating medical provider.
Should I Get Tested for Coronavirus?
Many people who get the Coronavirus only develop minor symptoms, or in some cases never show symptoms at all. We are currently offering pre-screening for Coronavirus testing for patients who believe they are experiencing symptoms associated with the disease. These symptoms can resemble cold or respiratory illness effects and include:
- Mild to severe fever
- Shortness of breath
These symptoms typically begin anywhere from a day or two all the way up to 14 days after initial exposure. Many of the patients that have had severe complications from the virus also have pneumonia in both lungs.
While our Coronavirus testing will determine whether you currently have the disease, we also offer Coronavirus antibody testing that can determine whether you ever have ever been infected. This is critically important because so many cases never show symptoms, and is necessary to clear people to go back to work and reopen their businesses.
When Should I Seek Medical Attention for Coronavirus?
The CDC advises that if you develop any emergency signs of COVID-19, you should seek medical attention immediately. These symptoms include:
- Trouble breathing
- Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
- Confusion or inability to arouse
- Bluish lips or face
Call 911 if you are experiencing these symptoms. Notify the operator that you believe you have COVID-19 and put on a face covering before health arrives.
Will My Insurance Cover Coronavirus Testing?
At this time, the following insurance payers are covering telehealth visits and waiving any cost-sharing obligations for their members:
- Aetna Better Health of NJ
- Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield
- Horizon NJ Health
- Create Health Plans
- United Health Care and Oxford
- Wellcare, NJ
Patients with these insurance providers can scan their insurance cards for processing.
For all other patients, the virtual visit consult fee will be $50. If you do not have any insurance coverage, there will be no charge for COVID 19 related treatment and testing visits.
If a provider determines that you should get testing for coronavirus, there will be an additional $25 test fee for self pay patients and for those with insurances not listed above.
