Telehealth Screening Visit to Determine COVID Testing

We do not accept outside orders except for minors. Patients under 15 require orders from their pediatrician before we can schedule them for testing.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Do I need a physician order to be tested for COVID-19 if I am symptomatic? You will need a physician order from your primary care physician, or you will need to be evaluated by one of our telehealth providers. Please note that either service is billed separately from the COVID-19 test even if you do not take the test.
  2. How long until I will get my result? Typically, the results will be available within 24-48 hours for the COVID-19 diagnosis test and about 24 hours for the antibody test.
  3. How will I be notified? You will receive a phone call from 201.967.4000 only if your results are positive. You will be asked to verify your name and date of birth.  Test results are available through the online- patient portal Change Healthcare.  Copies of results will NOT be sent to your primary care physician.

  5. Is this covered by insurance? Generally medically necessary diagnostic testing for symptomatic and asymptomatic infections should be covered by your health insurance. Travel related, work, or other surveillance testing may not be covered by all health plans. Please check with your insurer for further clarification.

  6. Can my physician order these tests for me? Currently, we only accept outside orders for symptomatic patient testing. All asymptomatic testing and antibody testing is by order of a Bergen New Bridge provider only.
