Which test will I receive?

The standard COVID-19 lab testing – nasal (nose) swab specimen. Testing is safe and easy.

What and where is your drive-thru or walk-up testing site?

For drive-thru: Testing minimizes your contact. Your windows remain up until you reach the testing personnel. Once there, you place your window in the halfway down position for our trained medical staff to perform the test. Please wear a mask or face covering, if available.

For walk-up: You will identify yourself at check-in & a medical provider will perform the test.

Testing is performed at our Main Center, 868 York Avenue, SW, Atlanta, GA, location only. Existing patients, regardless of the center location you normally visit, are tested at this site.

How do I get my test results?

Test results typically take 2-5 business days, depending on the lab. One of our medical providers will contact you to review or schedule a telehealth visit.

Telehealth visits are covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most insurances; visits are available even if you don’t have insurance or if your insurance does not cover the cost. We will not charge a co-pay or require that you meet your deductible for using a telehealth visit to provide your COVID-19 lab results.

How much does FHCGA’s COVID-19 test cost?

It is FREE. If you have health insurance, the lab might bill your insurance to cover their lab fees. However, you will not be charged a co-pay or have to meet a required deductible.
