Asher Community Health Center and Wheeler County Public Health would like you to know how we can help you to be tested for Covid-19:
Thank you... we appreciate your cooperation. If you have any questions please call us at 541-763-2725.
Currently Asher Community Health Center is able to perform this test in-house, and there is NO CHARGE for administering the “ID NOW” screening diagnostic test for Covid-19.
This “zero cost to the patient” policy relates to the Covid-19 screening tests where the patient’s sample is taken by ACHC, and it is analyzed using the ID NOW equipment located at ACHC.
There are two parts to the Covid-19 diagnostic testing: Taking the sample, and performing the analysis.
If for some reason a patient’s sample is going to be sent forward to an outside lab, there could be a lab fee generated by that particular lab.
If your Covid-19 sample is going to be sent to an outside lab, we will notify you and you can directly contact the lab for their fee schedule, to approve any costs.
Outside laboratories we may use are:
If you have further questions, please call 541-763-2725.
Section 3202(b) of the CARES Act requires providers of diagnostic tests for COVID-19 to make public the cash price of a COVID-19 diagnostic test on the provider’s public internet website.
