Ready actively monitors the evolving pandemic and coordinates with partners and public health authorities to ensure we have the latest information. Our team remains committed to supporting you with care during these challenging times.
Ready follows all CDC guidelines and has strict protocols for viruses such as COVID and influenza. Ready engages in ongoing training with our staff to protect ourselves and our patients.
All Responders wear special personal protective equipment (PPE), including eye coverings, gowns, gloves, and N95 masks. We regularly sanitize our office spaces, vehicles, and equipment for your safety and ours.
Ready currently offers in-home rapid antigen testing. We use the BD Veritor System* for Rapid Detection of SARS-CoV-2. This test is authorized by the FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization.
The rapid antigen test uses a specimen collected from your nostrils. The swabbing process is gentle and non-invasive for most patients. The test specimen is then combined with a reagent, put on a test strip, and inserted into the BD Analyzer.
Yes, we are happy to provide you with an airline travel note. The type of testing and documentation required for air travel may differ based on your travel destination, airline, and state requirements. We advise that you visit the CDC/TSA website as well as check with your travel provider and travel destination to confirm that our testing is accepted prior to scheduling or taking the test.
If you have a positive antigen test result, it is very likely that you have COVID-19. Therefore, it is also likely that you may be placed in isolation to avoid spreading the virus to others. We recommend that patients follow the CDC guidelines and the clinical guidance document provided by our Responder. For more information about test results, you can access BD’s Fact Sheet for Patients here.
A negative antigen test result means that proteins from the virus that cause COVID-19 were not found in your sample. A negative result does not definitively rule out COVID-19 infection and should not be used as the sole basis of decision-making for patients. We recommend that patients follow the CDC guidelines and the clinical guidance document provided by our Responder.
The best time to use the rapid antigen test is within five days of the onset of symptoms. For patients without symptoms who have had close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, it is best to wait a minimum of 3 days, and preferably 5 days, until getting tested. If you are unsure if you have come into close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 or you are not currently experiencing symptoms, Ready is still available to provide testing at any time.
For patients with COVID-19 symptoms, Ready will bill your insurance. Most insurance plans, including traditional Medicare and Medicaid, cover these tests with $0 out-of-pocket costs for you. Check with your plan to confirm coverage. You may be responsible for the cost of additional services provided.
For patients who do not have COVID-19 symptoms, Ready charges a flat fee of $149. We do not accept insurance for these tests. This is because, in our experience, insurers will not cover testing costs for patients who are asymptomatic.
There are many challenges with COVID-19, but getting a test easily should not be one of them. You can book a test online through our website here.
Ready does not currently offer Covid-19 vaccines.
