The company says that its at-home test is especially suited for patients who are scheduled to go back to school or work. The test can also be requested if a person plans to visit loved ones who are elderly or have compromised immune systems.
The test will also determine if a person has the virus but is asymptomatic. It is administered on a per-household basis, with up to four family members being tested to rule out co-infection.
All tests are administered by licensed medical professionals and are minimally invasive. Patients can choose between two testing methods depending on their desired timelines.
The first option is the swab test, wherein a sample will be collected from the nasopharyngeal cavity. The specimen will be analyzed in an accredited laboratory, and Sickday Practitioner will call the patient to inform them of the results and e-mail will be sent with lab report.
The second method is via blood extraction, in which a drop of blood will be collected on the spot. The SickDay Practitioners will run a rapid test and results will be ready in approximately 15 minutes.
Sickday Medical House Calls adds that most health insurance companies will reimburse the cost of testing. SickDay provides a receipt and proper codes that insurance companies require.
The at-home testing service is part of Sickday Medical House Calls’ mission to revolutionize how healthcare is delivered. SickDay has been providing medical house calls in NYC for over a decade.
A representative from the company says: “Staying at home is truly the wisest course of action these days. This new testing service allows people to get the testing they need without ever stepping outside the door.”
