            FAQ for Capstone Testing


            1. How much does it cost etc.

            Answer: Good question, we are billing patients insurance if they are insured but anything not covered by insurance is written off. No one receiving a COVID test will be charged by our clinic.  If anything changes on our end with this I will send an update.


            1. Does this include all MSBSD staff members and students or just certain individuals?

            Answer: All support staff and students in the schools qualify.


            1. Is this also by appt only or can they just drive up to be tested?

            Answer: We prefer appointments, but we will test if they just show up as we can. The appointments will definitely help their wait time.


            1. Also how about students/staff that are identified as a close contact and want to be tested per public health guidance during quarantine but are asymptomatic? Can they also get this rapid test?

            Answer: Students and staff that want to be tested due to exposure have to wait until at least day 7 to be tested unless they are symptomatic sooner, since they have to quarantine for 14 days regardless we would perform a state test for asymptomatic exposures.


            1. Lastly, if they need a weekend test should they go to the Wasilla location?

                          Answer: If they need a test on the weekend they should come to the Wasilla location.
