Our COVID-19 Test Types

Insurance is accepted for the COVID-19 test.

You will be billed for any out-of-pocket expense applied by your insurance.

Payments utilizing insurance require a provider encounter.

Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)

Using a nasopharyngeal swab, PCR tests for an active infection by looking for pieces of the genomic materials of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

The PCR test is extremely specific and sensitive, making it the most accurate test we offer. This test can detect COVID-19 sooner than any other available test.

Other Testing Options


The antigen test checks for active infection by looking for certain pieces of the proteins, or specific viral antigens, which make up the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

This test produces results quickly. The antigen test is faster and less expensive, so it is a practical option for large groups.

The antibody test, also called a serology test, checks for traces of a past infection. There are two options for this test: finger prick or blood draw.

This tests for antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 proteins in the blood to determine if you have been infected in the past. The body produces antibodies, which are proteins designed to combat viruses, and signs of antibodies confirm a past infection. 


Blood draw: $50 per test (Self Pay)

Finger prick: $50 per test (Self Pay)

What is COVID-19?

Coronaviruses are a family of viruses, some of which can infect people. Until 2019, this new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, had not been discovered in humans. Caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, COVID-19 is a respiratory disease that can cause a myriad of symptoms ranging from a mild cold to pneumonia, with the most common being fever, coughing, and shortness of breath.

Middle Georgia Labs, offering COVID-19 testing, is provided by Middle Georgia Heart. With multiple locations throughout Middle Georgia, the medical providers at Middle Georgia Heart treat conditions and symptoms of the heart with exceptional patient care being the main focus.
