Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some questions we usually get about our Coronavirus Test (COVID-19).
How accurate is the testing process?
The samples you order for your employees or members are processed in the same labs used by primary care providers, hospitals, and government schemes. Our laboratories are CPA approved and ISO accredited, which are the highest levels of accreditation. Test kits are manufactured within our ISO 13485 accredited facility, the highest level of accreditation for medical devices.
Is this test authorized by the FDA?
Yes, the NJ Covid Coronavirus (COVID-19) test and our state-of-the-art New Jersey lab facility have received Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA.
What type of lab analysis is carried out?
Reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) lab analysis is the gold-standard for COVID-19 detection, confirming the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in a sample. This test works by first converting the RNA of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which may be present in a sample, into DNA. This DNA will then be amplified to an amount which can then be detected and analyzed by our team of clinical scientists within our CLIA-certified labs.
Are there any age restrictions for people using this test?
Our Coronavirus (COVID-19) tests are available for use by all people aged 18 and over.
Who pays for the test?
The test will be billed to the patient’s health insurance plan upon a written order from their healthcare provider.
What is the patient's financial responsbility?
This will depend on the specifics of your health insurance plan and coverage. We recommend contacting your health plan administrator to determine your financial responsibility.
Can I pay for the test myself?
Yes. If your health insurance plan deems this testing as research or investigational and you believe the clinical benefits outweigh the financial cost, you can pay out-of-pocket for testing.
