COVID-19 and Flu Testing

Testing for COVID-19 and the flu plays an important role in determining effective treatment and prevention for these illnesses.

Effective March 22, 2022, the government program that covered the cost of COVID testing for people without health insurance has ended. With the program ending, we can no longer bill the government for COVID testing. Only self-pay COVID testing for travel, and self-requested COVID testing, will be accepted at all CompuNet sites. Free COVID-19 tests also can be ordered by going to www.covidtests.gov.

I Have Symptoms or Am Preparing for a Surgery or Procedure: Screening PCR (Nose Swab) Testing

Screening PCR (nose swab) testing enables medical providers to determine the proper course of treatment for individuals who are:

Schedule your COVID-19 test

Screening PCR (nose swab) testing is available at many locations in Southwest Ohio through Premier Health and CompuNet Clinical Laboratories. Please note:

  • Only self-pay COVID testing for travel, and self-requested COVID testing, will be accepted at all CompuNet sites.
  • Testing is by appointment only at all locations. 
  • PCR (nose swab) tests are available at all locations. Antigen (rapid) tests also are available at many locations.

To ensure an orderly process, it is vitally important that if you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or the flu, first contact your family physician or primary care provider. Work with your provider’s office to see if you meet certain criteria before you come to any of the collection sites.

I Don't Have Symptoms But Want or Need to Be Tested

If you are asymptomatic, meaning you currently don’t have symptoms of COVID-19, but want to be tested or rule out a diagnosis of COVID-19 (including for travel documentation), Premier Health and CompuNet Laboratories offer screening testing. This may be helpful if you don’t have symptoms of COVID-19 but may have been in contact with someone with COVID-19. You can:

  • Talk with your provider to determine what screening test is right for you and where to receive the test
  • Get a self-pay test

Getting Test Results

CompuNet will collect and forward specimens to its core lab in Moraine for testing. Results are available in MyChart (for patients whose physician ordered the test in Epic) or through CompuNet’s patient portal, My Labs Now.

IgG Antibody Testing

Testing for antibodies (blood test) after COVID-19 passes can provide peace of mind regarding previous symptoms. Antibody testing (blood test) for COVID-19 can potentially tell a patient if they have had a past COVID-19 infection. Antibody testing is available through CompuNet. Learn more.
