About the COVID-19 rapid test for kids

Get your child easily tested for COVID-19 at our Nao Medical clinics. The rapid COVID-19 test will be used along with a healthcare provider’s guidance and counseling to ensure your child’s safety and the best path of management to move forward.
 
The rapid antigen test in use at Nao Medical (formerly Statcare) is clinically known as the Sofia 2 SARS Antigen FIA. Quidel, the manufacturer, has received FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) status, meaning this type of test can be used to test certain patients, including kids, in emergency situations.

What is a COVID-19 Rapid test?

The COVID-19 rapid test — which involves a nasal swab — is a test that detects fragments of proteins found on or within the virus. Because this test offers much quicker results than standard PCR tests (in as little as 15-20 minutes), it allows us to test more people on a daily basis with shorter wait times, helping improve our efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19.

How much does a COVID-19 rapid test for kids cost?

The COVID PCR testing is an out-of-pocket cost and is a patient’s responsibility. For kids or parents without insurance plans, we have same-day payment rates available in all our COVID test locations in NY.
 
For insured patients, the COVID testing cost is based on your specific insurance coverage and plan. You can click here to check the insurance providers we accept.

Other services offered: COVID-19 PCR tests for kids

Aside from rapid tests, we also offer COVID-19 PCR tests for kids, whether you have an insurance plan or not. This test is more sensitive and can generate more accurate results in people infected with COVID-19 but aren’t showing any symptoms. To learn more about PCR tests, you can check the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

FAQ

How accurate are rapid COVID-19 tests?

Rapid COVID-19 tests are highly accurate but negative results may need to be confirmed with an RT-PCR test, especially if the patient has COVID symptoms. Rapid tests are more effective when taken one to five days after symptoms begin to appear.

What is the difference between a PCR test and a rapid COVID-19 test?

The difference between a PCR test and a rapid COVID-19 test is that the former takes a few days to get results but the results are more accurate because it can detect small amounts of the virus even when there are no symptoms. The latter, on the other hand, can generate results in as little as 15 minutes but can only detect if the virus is already active in your body.

Are there any at-home tests for COVID-19?

Yes, there are at-home tests for COVID-19 that let you do the specimen collection yourself. For more accurate results from a healthcare professional, get tested at a testing center near you.

What are the different types of COVID-19 tests?

The different types of COVID-19 tests are the rapid antigen test, RT-PCR test, and the COVID antibody test. The rapid antigen and PCR tests both help detect if your child has an existing COVID infection. The main difference is that rapid tests generate results faster than PCR tests, but PCR tests generate more accurate results than rapid tests.

On the other hand, the COVID antibody test detects if your child was able to develop antibodies, indicating that they had a COVID infection in the past.

What should parents do while waiting for a child’s COVID-19 test results?

While waiting for a child’s COVID-19 test results, parents should keep their child at home and away from other family members. Follow CDC recommendations regarding quarantine measures. Call a healthcare provider when your child gets sick and experiences severe symptoms.

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.

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.

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.
