Henry County Health Center offering COVID-19 testing

MT. PLEASANT — The Henry County Health Center lab offers COVID-19 testing through its self-directed wellness program. This testing includes COVID-19 testing for travel, COVID-19 PCR, and the COVID-19 antibody tests.

Test prices range from $75 to $165, and no provider order is required.

When receiving COVID-19 tests through the HCHC Lab self-directed wellness program, the tests are not reimbursed by insurance or any government programs like Medicare or Medicaid.

The process for making appointments and payment for the specific COVID-19 tests is as follows:

• COVID-19 tests for symptomatic patients: Call 319-385-6540 to schedule an appointment. When you arrive for your appointment, go directly to lab; do not go to registration. Patients are required to pay with credit card, debit card or Health Savings Account card. Cash and checks are not accepted for these two tests.

• Non-symptomatic patients wanting COVID-19 testing for travel: Call 319-385-6540 to schedule an appointment. Before going to appointment, you must first go to registration to sign a consent form. Patients can pay at that time with either check, cash, credit, debit or Health Savings Account card.

The HCHC lab offers several tests in addition to COVID-19 through the self-directed wellness testing. This program allows a client to cash pay (credit card, Health Savings Account card, cash or check) for certain lab tests, without a provider order. Since these tests are not reimbursed by insurance or any government programs like Medicare or Medicaid, medical necessity is not required.
