COVID-19 Antibody Test Now Directly Available Through LabCorp.com
Expanding Access to Tests Through LabCorp’s Wide Network of Doctors, Healthcare Providers, and Now Online
LabCorp (NYSE: LH), a leading global life sciences company that is deeply integrated in guiding patient care, today announced that its COVID-19 Immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody test is now available for individuals through LabCorp.com. With the addition of this latest offering, individuals have the ability to receive the COVID-19 IgG antibody test from their doctor, in person or through a telemedicine program, and now directly using LabCorp.com.
LabCorp does not require upfront out-of-pocket costs for the IgG antibody test. If the individual uses LabCorp.com to get the test, there is a non-reimbursable fee of $10 paid to PWNHealth to cover the independent physician service costs. If the test is ordered through the individual’s doctor or healthcare provider, the $10 PWNHealth fee does not apply.
LabCorp.com is a convenient option that uses an independent physician service, PWNHealth, to determine if an individual is eligible for the test following the completion of a short health questionnaire. Individuals who meet PWNHealth’s criteria can go to one of LabCorp’s thousands of patient service centers. Test results will be available through their LabCorp PatientTM account and individuals can consult with an independent licensed healthcare provider from PWNHealth.
The COVID-19 IgG antibody blood test detects the presence of antibodies to the virus and can help determine if an individual may have been exposed to the virus. While antibody tests are helpful to understand if an individual has developed antibodies and a potential immune response, antibody testing should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude infection.
