COVID-19 test sites

When you go to a COVID-19 testing site, you’ll be asked for identification. You may also be asked for health insurance information. If you don’t have identification or health insurance, you can still get a test.

Some sites may also:

  • Limit testing to people who meet certain criteria.
  • Require an appointment.
  • Require a referral from your doctor.

You won’t have to pay out-of-pocket to get a test. However, some sites may bill your insurance for a visit fee.
