COVID-19 Related Testing Costs

UR Medicine Labs has begun testing blood samples for antibodies to novel coronavirus. Patients need a testing order from a provider, and can have their blood drawn by the provider or at any UR Medicine Labs testing location. UR Medicine’s provider guidelines call for testing patients who:

  • Are being diagnosed or treated for Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome of Children (MIS-C)
  • Have fully recovered from COVID-19 and would like to donate convalescent plasma
  • Previously had symptoms of COVID-19 but did not receive a test to learn if they were infected

To learn more about testing for COVID-19, please call your health care provider directly or the UR Medicine COVID-19 support line at 1-888-928-0011.

COVID-19 Antibody Testing


At this time, insurers are not covering the costs for the COVID antibody test that is performed solely for purposes of pandemic control and/or epidemiologic tracking. Coverage is only available when the test is medically appropriate for the diagnosis and treatment of an individual. The cost listed is for an individual who wishes to have a test conducted.

COVID-19 Diagnostic Testing


Please note, the cost for this service may be covered by a number of funding programs currently available.
