COVID-19 Testing for Groups

If you represent a workplace, school, or other group settings where there are a number of individuals needing COVID-19 testing, we have additional ways to partner with you.  We welcome anyone to utilize our e-visits and individual clinics but can often provide a better & more consistent experience for your team with other services.  We may be able to arrange for testing at your site or partner on the best timing and process for the smooth completion of testing at one of our clinic sites.

To help us better understand your needs and how we may partner, please send an email to [email protected] with the following information:

  1. Key contact person and email/phone number;
  2. Information about your group (size, any special needs); and
  3. Reason for COVID-19 testing needs.

Cost

The gross charge for a COVID-19 lab test is $218.00 total ($162.00 for the test and $56.00 for the collection). The gross charge for the antibody test is $105.00. This is the list price; contractual insurance rates or discounts are not included in this amount and they do not indicate out of pocket costs. At this time, Hennepin Healthcare is not collecting copays for these tests. For more information on testing prices, access the Costs of Care page.

The CARES Act requires that COVID-19 testing is covered without cost-sharing. This applies to all health insurance coverage in Minnesota. It is important to know that this applies to the test only, office visits are not covered through the CARES Act. Some insurance carriers have agreed to waive cost-sharing for in-network visits associated with the COVID-19 test – it is important to check with your health insurance to find out what will be covered and what is in-network.

If you do not have insurance, contact a Hennepin Healthcare Financial Counselor. Financial Counseling is supporting patients remotely. You can either email [email protected] or call 612-873-2767.
