From our first COVID-19 test swab on March 7 in Seattle to today, we have tested thousands of patients for COVID-19 across eight states. We’ve worked hard to bring more testing options and availability to anyone who needs it, including erecting outdoor test sites in all of our markets across the country, and conducting blood draws for antibody testing at most offices. Here’s the latest information on where we’re testing, when it’s most appropriate, and how you can get care.

Where is One Medical testing patients for COVID-19?

We’re currently offering PCR testing to anyone who is concerned they may currently be infected with COVID-19 by appointment in:

Boston: Newton
Chicago: West Loop
Los Angeles: Century City (temporarily closed)
New York: Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island
Phoenix: Biltmore
Portland: N.Williams
Seattle: South Lake Union
SF Bay Area: San Francisco, San Mateo, San Rafael, Sunnyvale, Emeryville
Washington D.C.: Georgetown

For those interested in seeing if they have developed the antibodies for COVID-19, One Medical is drawing blood for antibody testing in all of the markets where we have offices. Learn more about One Medical’s approach to antibody testing.

If I think I need testing, how do I get it?

If you’re an existing One Medical member

The first step is to have your symptoms assessed by our virtual medical team. Just open the One Medical app and tap “Get COVID-19 Testing”. Our medical team will get back to you with next steps, which will include guidance on whether we recommend PCR or antibody testing.

If you’re not a One Medical member

We want to do everything we can to help people through this difficult time, so we’re offering 30-day trial memberships to anyone with COVID-19 concerns — including front-line responders and essential workers. Simply use code GETCARE30 to sign up on OneMedical.com, and we will set you up with free access to our virtual care services, including COVID-19 screenings and access to testing.

How much does testing cost?

Many insurance companies have publicly committed to covering the full cost of COVID-19 testing, so most people who are tested won’t receive a bill. If you do get a bill, let us know and we’ll work to resolve this.

We’re continuing to research new testing technologies and will bring you more solutions as soon as they’re clinically proven to be effective. Learn more about COVID-19 testing and how One Medical is looking to bring more testing and new options to you.
