About the COVID-19 antibody test for travel
Knowing who has already contracted COVID-19 and recovered from it is critical to not only helping slow the spread of COVID, but also in preventing another severe outbreak in New York City. This is why a COVID-19 antibody test is a necessity, not just for New Yorkers, but for the entire country.
We offer reliable COVID-19 antibody tests in all Nao Medical (formerly Statcare) clinics in New York City.
What is a COVID antibody test?
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved COVID-SeroKlir, a COVID-19 antibody test by Kantaro Bioscience. It helps test for potential immunity and helps determine the exact levels of antibodies in your body. Knowing the levels of antibodies in a human system can help in vaccine development. Learn more about antibody testing here.
How much does a COVID antibody test cost?
The COVID antibody test is an out-of-pocket cost and is a patient’s responsibility. For patients without insurance plans, we have same-day payment rates available in all our COVID test locations in NY.
For insured patients, the COVID antibody testing cost is based on your specific insurance coverage and plan. You can click here to check the insurance providers we accept.

What does a positive antibody test result mean for COVID-19?
A positive antibody test result means that your immune system produced antibodies against the COVID-19 virus either due to a previous infection or in response to a COVID vaccine.
What is the purpose of COVID-19 antibody or serology tests?
The purpose of COVID-19 antibody or serology tests is to determine if you have antibodies against the virus. This information can help with clinical research and vaccine development. Learn more about testing for a previous COVID infection here.
Does an antibody test show if you have COVID-19?
An antibody test will not show if you have COVID-19. It is designed only to test for past infections by detecting antibodies.
At what point after infection with COVID-19 will there be enough antibodies to be detected in an antibody test?
After an infection with the COVID-19 virus, there will only be enough antibodies to be detected in an antibody test after two to three weeks. So, getting tested too soon will possibly lead to a negative antibody test result.
Why is antibody testing not currently recommended to assess immunity after COVID-19 vaccination?
Antibody testing is not currently recommended to assess immunity after COVID-19 vaccination because it is not authorized to measure the level of protection a vaccine gives based on a person’s immune response. An incorrect interpretation of antibody test results might make people think that they are fully protected and might encourage them to take fewer safety precautions against the virus.

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.

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 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.
