- Antibody tests check your blood by looking for antibodies, which may tell you if you had a past infection with the virus that causes COVID-19. You will get your results in 2-3 days.
- COVID-19 diagnostic test results typically take five to seven days to process, under normal conditions. COVID-19 antibody (serology) test results typically take about three to four days.
- The following information is for COVID-19 testing only and does not apply to a regular visit to a Carbon Health clinic or any non-coronavirus related visits.
If you have insurance in-network with Carbon Health there is no fee or cost to you as the patient. You can supply us with your insurance details, preferably when you book your appointment online, or via the Carbon Health app.
If you have insurance that is not contracted with Carbon Health, for example, Kaiser HMO or Medi-Cal, there is no fee or cost to you as a patient. You will still need to supply us with your insurance details, preferably when you book your appointment online, or via the Carbon Health app.

- Anyone who needs to know whether they have ever been infected are appropriate candidates for testing. Ultimately, testing is determined by your clinician.
- To get tested, schedule an appointment at a Carbon Health clinic for an assessment using the COVID-19 Concerns appointment reason.
- Results may take 3 to 4 days to process. However, this will vary based on the volume of tests received by the labs. Once the results are in, you will receive a call or a message from one of our providers with next steps.
- Based on current evidence, it is unclear whether the presence of SARS-CoV2 virus (COVID) antibodies results in immunity. Decisions about ongoing monitoring or protocols surrounding activities should be made after discussing with your clinician.
- A negative serologic test result indicates you have not developed detectable antibodies at the time of testing. This may be due to having testing performed too early in the course of COVID-19, the absence of exposure to the virus, or the lack of an adequate immune response. A negative test does not completely rule out a past or present infection with SARS-CoV-2 virus and correlation with a diagnostic test may be considered to look for an active infection. A negative result should not be used to influence social distancing, hand hygiene, or use of protective equipment decisions.
- The COVID-19 serology test does not diagnose you with an active SARS-CoV-2 virus infection, but it can provide some information about whether a patient has been exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Serology testing, along with each individual's clinical scenario, can provide some information to patients particularly when the test is negative. In certain populations, this information can help them better understand what their exposures have been.
- A positive serologic test result indicates you have likely produced an immune response to the SARS-CoV2 virus (COVID) or one of a subset of the other types of coronaviruses (HKU1, NL63, OC43 or 229E). A positive test result does not exclude an active infection and it is not known if the antibody confers clinical immunity. It is very important to keep in mind this test does not indicate whether you currently have an active infection or whether you are infectious. A PCR test may be recommended to help identify an active infection. Keep in mind patients can remain infectious for many weeks after they are infected with the virus. A positive test means you may or may not pass the infection along to others. Based on current evidence, it is unclear whether the presence of these antibodies result in immunity. Decisions about ongoing monitoring or protocols surrounding activities should be made after discussing with your clinician.
- Since the serology test is relevant to potential infections that have occurred 4 or more days after your illness, repeat testing is unnecessary unless you develop a new potential infection. These tests are most accurate when you test negative though suggesting that you have not had exposure to coronavirus.
- No, your healthcare is between you and your care team and is always confidential.
- Although the exact number is not known, the range that LabCorp and Quest Diagnostics have published depends on the number of days after your infection you are tested. The longer the duration, the fewer false negatives. This can range from 3-15%.
