How Much Does a
COVID-19 Home Test Kit Cost?
Our COVID-19 test kit costs $117 plus shipping out-of-pocket, and HSA and FSA cards are accepted as payments. You may be eligible for further insurance coverage if prescribed by a doctor. However, please note we will not file claims with insurance companies. As money is disbursed from the federal government, it is possible that the cost of the home saliva test kit may be fully covered in the future. We will be monitoring any changes closely and update our customers accordingly. If you are a health care provider, you may qualify for different pricing.
Who Should Get Tested for Coronavirus?
You have symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath. You may have been exposed to someone infected with COVID-19. You live or work in a place where people gather in close proximity including schools, offices, healthcare settings or assisted living facilities. Your employer, public health department, contact investigator, or healthcare provider has identified you as someone who should get tested.
If you have further questions about whether you should be tested for COVID-19 testing, we recommend reaching out to your primary healthcare provider to see if testing is right for you at this time. If you are experiencing severe or life-threatening symptoms, please seek immediate medical care from a healthcare professional or call 9-1-1.

What Happens Next
You will receive your COVID-19 test results at home within 72 hours of the lab receiving your saliva sample. Your test results will confirm whether or not you are infected with SARS-CoV-2, the strain of coronavirus responsible for COVID-19.
GNC4U tests are evaluated and approved (if appropriate) by an independent board-certified physician in your state.
Non-invasive Collection Method
We use a simple and effective saliva collection method. This method enables you to collect your own sample and is more comfortable than other methods such as nasal swabs.
Our partner lab Infinity BiologiX is CLIA-certified (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments). This means they have to meet high standards to obtain both state and federal certifications and submit themselves to regular inspections.
