COVID-19 ANTIBODY TEST – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The antibody test is a blood test that will be sent to a lab to be analyzed for coronavirus antibodies.
Immediate Care Medical Walk-In of Toms River now offers coronavirus antibody tests by appointment through Quest Diagnostics seven days per week starting Monday, April 20, 2020.
The COVID-19 Antibody Test is by appointment only. Scheduling by appointment ensures we have the appropriate staff and testing supplies on hand to conduct the test. Immediate Care still accepts walk-ins for all other urgent care needs, or patients can schedule a virtual visit online (telemedicine) and speak with a provider from the comfort of their own home.
To schedule a test, patients can book an appointment online through Immediate Care’s website, www.immcare.com. Patients need to complete the entire registration profile online prior to arriving for their scheduled appointment time.
COVID-19 Antibody Tests will be expanded to additional Immediate Care centers in the coming days. Continue to check our website and social media pages for updates.
The COVID-19 Antibody test has Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the FDA.
According to Quest, if a patient is confirmed to have these antibodies – he or she was likely exposed to COVID-19 previously and now may suggest immunity.
Patients interested in receiving an antibody test should be symptom-free for a minimum of ten (10) days or have never experienced any COVID-19-related symptoms at all.
Patients still experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, should instead schedule the COVID-19 nasal swab test or wait the required ten (10) days being symptom-free before receiving the COVID-19 antibody test.
Patients should arrive for their COVID-19 Antibody Test at their scheduled appointment time with their photo ID, insurance card (if applicable), credit card and wearing a mask.
Immediate Care accepts all major insurance plans, and patients will still be responsible for their copay. Immediate Care will also be collecting credit card information at time of service to have on file.
Self-pay patients will pay $125 at time of service by cash or credit card. Quest Diagnostics will direct bill self-pay patients for the lab portion separately.
Employers looking to have their employees tested for the antibody blood test or the nasal swab test should email William Schuler at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 908-216-0784.

Patients who test POSITIVE for COVID-19 Antibodies have likely been exposed to the coronavirus which may suggest that the patient has protective immunity to COVID-19.
Patients who test NEGATIVE for COVID-19 Antibodies have most likely not been exposed to the coronavirus which may suggest that the patient is still susceptible to contracting COVID-19.
Patients who test EQUIVOCAL for COVID-19 Antibodies may or may not have been exposed to the coronavirus which may suggest that the patient’s results are unclear, and immunity cannot be determined. Patients should speak with their primary care physician to consider retesting if clinically indicated.
If patients have any additional questions or concerns about their results, they should contact their primary care physician, or patients can schedule a virtual visit online (telemedicine) and speak with a provider from the comfort of their own home.
