Based on the regulations and expected coverage for testing, Sonora Quest is not billing patients for this testing when ordered by a physician. It is recommended that patients consult with a physician to determine the medical necessity of obtaining COVID-19 testing. A physician ordered test would likely be covered if the order meets coverage guidelines, resulting in zero out-of-pocket expense.
Note that if you would like to order the COVID-19 antibody test without a doctor’s order or insurance, it is available for $99 through our My Lab ReQuestTM solution.
Orders should be submitted to Sonora Quest with all patient demographics and “Uninsured” noted in the payor portion of the order. Sonora Quest will pursue payment through AHCCCS or Department of Health & Human Services and will not be charging the patient.
