COVID Testing

The ANTIGEN test

The health center offers rapid-result COVID-19 antigen testing. We provide results within hours for patients with or without symptoms. The antigen test tells whether you have been infected with the Sars-COV2 virus by detecting virus activity with a nasal-swabbed sample. Results are posted to the patient portal by the end of the day. The results are posted under the "Medical Records" menu item and in the "Labs" tab.

Getting tested

  • Call (269) 387-3287 to schedule an appointment.
  • The out-of-pocket cost of antigen testing is $25.  Insurance does not pay for tests that are not medically necessary.
  • Naso-pharyngeal samples are collected by lab staff inside the health center.  Drive-thru testing is no longer offered.
  • Results are posted to your patient portal account by the end of the day.
  • These appointments are subject to the same rules as other appointments, including a no-show or late-cancellation charge of $20 if not canceled 4 hours ahead of the scheduled appt. time.

Things to consider

  • As with any medical test, there is the potential for false-positive or false-negative test results.
  • A positive antigen test result means that a person must self-isolate in an effort to avoid infecting others.
  • A positive test may result in extended quarantine or isolation and additional tests, with additional costs.
  • Testing alone does not replace treatment by a medical provider.
