How can I get COVID-19 antibody testing?

A COVID-19 antibody test has recently been validated by the FDA as well as Allina Health laboratories.

At this time, Allina Health is offering COVID-19 antibody (also called serology) testing in the inpatient setting for patients who meet certain guidelines. Due to limitations in collecting and interpreting the test, it is not yet available for outpatient testing, but will be soon. You can check for updates on antibody testing on this website. You can also learn more on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s antibody testing page.

COVID-19 testing and treatment costs

Allina Health is not collecting copays and deductibles for diagnostic COVID-19 tests. Many employers and health insurers are required to pay for diagnostic COVID-19 testing. You are encouraged to contact your insurance company for specific out-of-pocket cost questions and additional charges that could be incurred at the time of service. Patients will not be charged a fee for a COVID-19 test if they are uninsured and unable to pay.
