Information & Resources on COVID-19
Assurance Healthcare & Counseling Center will remain open and available to serve members through the COVID-19 closures. To best serve our members and to honor our statewide COVID-19 intiatives, we will be doing most of our appointments either over telephone or virtually. In-person visits are still available, but reserved for those that are absolutely necessary.
We are still filling and dispensing medications at our clinic, so nothing has changed there.
Is testing available through Assurance Healthcare & Counseling Center?
Yes. If you think you are currently sick with COVID-19, call us first.
We are currently able to offer a rapid antigen test (nasal swab) for $35, with results available in 10 minutes. This is NOT the more official “PCR” test that is needed for travel or other official business. This test is most accurate with those presenting symptoms (even mild symptoms), although positive results are said to be 98.5% accurate.
We can order the more official PCR test (nasal swab) for $100. We will do the swab, send the results to our lab, and have results within 2-4 days. This test does count for more official business, travel, etc.
If you think you have previously been infected with COVID-19, we have the antibody testing available through our lab partner. It is a simple blood-draw done at our clinic, which we send to our lab. The cost for that test is $50. We usually see results back in 2-4 business days.
When in doubt – call or contact us! We want to make sure you’re getting the care you need.
When we will have the vaccine?
Assurance Healthcare & Counseling Center has applied to be a dispensing location for the COVID-19 vaccines when they become available.
As of today (December 21st, 2020), only the local hospital has received initial shipments of the vaccine, and we have not received word if and when we will receive our first shipment. We will update our members via email when we do receive the vaccine.
If you are not sure if you’re on our mass email list, please contact us and we’ll make sure you’re added!
