CVS Health Says It Will Add Nearly 1,000 Rapid Coronavirus Testing Sites

October 29, 2020

WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS Health says it will add nearly 1,000 rapid coronavirus testing sites around the country by the end of the year.

The drugstore chain says it plans to have about 100 sites running this week in 22 states. Customers can usually get results within 30 minutes.

CVS Health says it will provide rapid-result tests at no cost for people who meet the criteria established by the CDC – which include symptoms and contact with someone who has the coronavirus. Those customers must register in advance for the test through the company’s website.

Insurers will pick up the bill for people with coverage who meet the CDC criteria, while a federal government program will pay for the uninsured, the company says.

The test that delivers results in a few days would cost $139 for those who don’t meet the CDC criteria. The company didn’t provide the cost of a rapid test for those who don’t meet the criteria.

The chain plans to start offering the rapid tests in California, Florida, New Jersey and Texas, among other states.
