  • Akina Pharmacy charges a $45.00 non-refundable administrative fee for each test. This fee is not covered by your insurance.
  • Aside from this fee, most people should not face costs for the COVID-19 test. Starting on March 18 and lasting for the duration of the public health emergency, all forms of public and private insurance, including self-funded plans, must now cover FDA-approved COVID-19 tests and costs associated with diagnostic testing with no cost-sharing, as long as the test is deemed medically appropriate by an attending health care provider. This includes high-deductible health plans and grandfathered plans, but does not apply to short-term, limited duration plans. As outlined by CMS in a series of FAQs, there is no limit on the number of COVID-19 tests that an insurer or plan is required to cover for an individual, as long as each test is deemed medically appropriate and the individual has signs or symptoms of COVID-19 or has had known or suspected recent exposure to COVID-19
  • The diagnostics lab that we’ve partnered with performs the test and all associated billing to your insurance company.

  • If you are uninsured, you will still only be charged a $45.00 administrative fee per test.
  • You will be required to provide a social security #  before the test is performed.

Akina Pharmacy is now offering the COVID-19 RT-PCR Nasal Swab Test.
