COVID-19 Testing at Bergen New Bridge

We offer two options for COVID-19 testing:

  • Diagnostic or Surveillance COVID-19 Testing
  • Travel COVID-19 Testing

COVID-19 Diagnostic or Surveillance Testing

We offer COVID-19 Nasal PCR and COVID-19 Saliva tests with results available to you in 24 to 48 hours. We currently do not provide rapid COVID-19 antigen tests.

What does surveillance mean? It means you currently are not exhibiting any COVID 19 like symptoms or have a known exposure to COVID 19. You are taking this test for work-related purposes (i.e., not vaccinated) or other personal reasons.

If you have a prescription for a diagnostic COVID 19 test, please submit it when you complete the survey.

This is not for travel testing, and we cannot guarantee results or coverage by your insurance company. If your test is considered a surveillance test, your insurance company will most likely not cover the cost of your test. Please check with your insurance company for details on coverage for COVID-19 testing before scheduling a test.

For surveillance testing, you will be required to submit payment before the test is administered.

  • Fee: $70 per PCR Nasal test.
  • Fee: $90 per PCR Saliva test

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Do I need a physician order to be tested for COVID-19 if I am symptomatic? For diagnostic testing, we recommend having a physician’s order. If you do not have a physician’s order, it is ok. You will need to submit a form stating you are symptomatic or have a known exposure to COVID-19.
  2. How long until I will get my result? Typically, the results will be available within 24-48 hours for the COVID-19 test. Travel test results will be emailed directly to you within 24 hours.
  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 Snytellis. Copies of results will NOT be sent to your primary care physician.

  4. What should I do between getting tested and being notified of my results? Please follow the Post Test Instructions (click to download) and speak with your primary care or ordering providers. If you have an increase in symptoms or difficulty breathing, please seek immediate medical attention.
  5. Is this covered by insurance? Medically necessary diagnostic testing authorized by your doctor for symptomatic and asymptomatic infections or exposures may be covered by your insurance plan. Work-related testing required due to an unvaccinated status or another surveillance test may not be covered by your insurance plans. It is your responsibility to contact your insurer to confirm coverage and out-of-pocket costs.
  6. Can my physician order these tests for me? Currently, we only accept outside orders for symptomatic (diagnostic) patient testing.
