Antigen tests are free via a Massachusetts Department of Public Health initiative providing OCHS with Abbott BinaxNOW™ rapid tests for COVID-19. Tests may be billed to individuals with insurance but not charged a co-pay; however, no one will be turned away. Insurances will be charged for the costs of administering your vaccination but not the actual vaccine which is free.
For individuals seeking a PCR (Polymerase chain reaction) molecular test, fees will apply for this test type. These tests samples will be processed by Quest Diagnostic Laboratories and billed directly to patient.
Outer Cape Health Services will also continue to provide symptomatic tests at all three sites and bill insurance. If an individual is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or has been referred to testing related to contact tracing, the individual should call OCHS first for a telehealth screening visit.
