Service Details

Get a COVID-19 PCR test for travel

Nao Medical offers 72 hour PCR tests for those who are traveling. It’s important to understand that not one single test is available that will meet each requirement for all travel guidelines.
Please check with both the airline and the destination you plan on visiting before your trip to see what test they will accept, how quickly you will need to present your test results, and what type of documents will be required.

What is the COVID-19 RT-PCR NAAT test?

The RT-PCR test is a polymerase chain reaction type of NAAT test (or Nucleic Acid Amplification Test). It can detect RNA from the SARS-COV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. This is different from the 15-minute Rapid Antigen Test and the COVID-19 Antibody Test. Those check for antigens and antibodies against the spike protein of the virus respectively.
The test itself can provide results in as little as 72 hours and is not FDA approved, but has been granted EUA (Emergency Use Authorization) and a COVID-19 PCR test must come from a CLIA Certified laboratory. Luckily, Nao Medical has partnered with CLIA certified labs and can provide a CLIA certificate.

FAQ

How accurate are COVID-19 PCR tests?

COVID-19 PCR tests are accurate and are considered the gold standard for COVID testing. This type of test is more sensitive and is mostly processed by health professionals in a laboratory.

Where can I get a COVID-19 PCR test for travel?

If you plan on traveling soon, you can get a 72 hour PCR test in New York City at any of our Nao Medical locations.

What’s the difference between the standard COVID-19 PCR test and the COVID-19 RT-PCR test?

Both the standard PCR test and RT-PCR test involve taking nasal swab samples. However, the RT-PCR test checks for RNA from the virus that causes COVID-19 and can produce results in a quicker amount of time (as little as 72 hours).

The standard test is considered more accurate, but you might have to wait two to four business days for your results, which might not be feasible if you’re traveling soon and need a negative result quickly.

Does my insurance cover the COVID-19 RT-PCR NAAT test?

At Nao Medical, we accept most major insurance plans, but in order to know if your plan covers the test, we would need to run your insurance and this can only be done at the beginning of your visit. If you would like to know ahead of time, please call the number on the back of your insurance card so a representative may let you know which coronavirus test is covered by your insurance plan.

Needed a rapid antigen test for travel the next day. Made the appointment online but they were also accepting walk-ins. No wait time if you fill your information online. Was done in 10 mins. Most people waited outside for their results(20 mins) but it’s not necessary because they upload it on the portal. Very quick and easy. Highly recommend.

I went for an immigration exam. The only reason for me taking out 1 star is because they don’t say the surgeon don’t stay in this location. So after you pay, do the initial exams (i just have to do the Gold plus test) you will need schedule to see the surgeon in Bronx. But other this… everything (even in the Bronx) was really fast and efficient….

I've been to few urgent care centers and this by far was the best. I was able to call and make an appointment for my daughter. When we arrived we waited less than 5 minutes and was directed to the room. The ladies up front were friendly, very helpful, and amazing. Excellent customer service Answered any questions I had regarding my daughter insurance. I need to give a huge shout out to Stephanie R, Kim and Shea. Highly recommended!!
