About COVID-19 rapid test near you

How much does the rapid COVID test cost?
Your out-of-pocket cost for COVID testing is based on your specific insurance coverage and plan. It is the patient’s responsibility to contact your insurance carrier for details about your plan, if they are covering the costs.
For patients without insurance plans, we have same-day payment rates available in all our rapid COVID test locations.
How do I get a rapid COVID test on-site
Patients can have rapid COVID tests done on site or with the help of our clinic, mobile team or home service. Our mobile team can host events, schools, production companies, event management companies, and sports teams to do on-site New York COVID rapid testing for all.
Other services offered: antibody tests
Aside from rapid COVID tests, we also offer antibody tests, whether you have an insurance plan or not. If you test positive, it does not mean that the virus is currently present in your body.
Instead, it means that you may have gotten infected before but your immune system was able to develop antibodies to fight it off. To learn more about antibody tests, you can visit the Department of Health website.

The staff and the doctors were all very kind and caring. I was very worried about my child’s health. I appreciate your clinic being open on Saturdays. This saved us a trip to the ER, which can be scary for a child. Thank you again!

My daughter came in with stomach pain, and your doctor was able to diagnose that she probably had appendicitis. I took her to the emergency room, and she did have to have her appendix removed. Thank you so much for your help.

My visits have been fantastic both times I’ve gone. The woman at the front desk was courteous and professional, and prompt. The nurse was excellent. Same treatment as the front desk and the smoothest phlebotomist going. The doctor was great, calm, thorough, polite, and knowledgeable. I wish he were my GP. Overall? 11 out of 10.

I’ve been to Nao Medical, I think, three times, and their staff is delightful. If you are in dire pain, they take you in as soon as possible, if not sooner. The offices and exam rooms are spotless. All of the medical staff is very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. I highly recommend it.
