SYLACAUGA, Ala. – MainStreet Family Care and KidsStreet Urgent Care are now participating in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Uninsured Patient Program.

According to the HHS website, this allows health care providers who have conducted COVID-19 testing or provided treatment for uninsured COVID-19 individuals on or after February 4, 2020 to submit claims for reimbursement.

“This means that uninsured patients can come into our clinic at any time and receive a COVID-19 viral swab test without any cost to them,” said Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at MainStreet Family Care Betsy Stewart.

According to Stewart, uninsured patients interested in getting a COVID-19 antibody test will be covered for the visit to MainStreet and blood draw, however, LabCorp would still bill $100 for the antibody test. 

“We would love your help in sharing this information so that we can expand testing to as many people as possible as the state and country continues to re-open,” said Stewart.
