I understand that my insurance might not reimburse the fee for the test and hold the pharmacy and pharmacist harmless for any fees not reimbursedI understand the test that I am receiving is a rapid diagnostic test using antigens. Antigen tests look for viral proteins, which are highly specific, meaning that if you test positive, you are very likely infected. However, there is a higher chance of false negative with antigen tests, which means that a negative result cannot definitively rule out an active infection. If you have a negative result on an antigen test but have a recent exposure to COVID, or are displaying many of the symptoms, you may wish to take a PCR test to confirm your result. A PCR test looks for the presence of the virus' genetic material. PCR tests are highly accurate, but can take days to a week to get the results. The antigen test that you are receiving today is most accurate if you are symptomatic and within the first five days of symptoms. If you are testing to meet a travel requirement, it is your responsibility to determine if you are required to take a PCR test or an antigen test. The test you are receiving today is an antigen test.
