*Inspire Diagnostics will bill your health plan, the government, a government health plan or the uninsured fund for the testing. There will be no patient out-of-pocket cost.
Why Frequent Testing is Important
COVID-19 is a virus that is very infectious between 3 to 10 days from the time of infection
Over 40% of the people who have the virus are asymptomatic and show no symptoms
Without regular testing, there is not a clear way to monitor against the infection
Frequent testing has been shown to be the best way to create a safer environment

Inspire Diagnostics is providing COVID-19 testing with no out-of-pocket cost to the individual. We accept the reimbursed amount from the insurance company or, in the case of an uninsured individual, the federal program for uninsured persons (CARES Act) as payment for our services. There is no amount owed by you to Inspire Diagnostics.
Insurance companies commonly send an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) to their insured members showing the amount of benefit paid under their plan. Healthcare providers, including Inspire Diagnostics, submit claims at standard rates. Often, insurance companies reimburse at significant lower amounts. An EOB may show the difference between the standard charge and actual reimbursed amount as an adjustment or patient responsibility. An EOB, however, is not an invoice.
Certain plans reimburse the insured member instead of the healthcare provider. This occurs mostly in cases in which the healthcare provider is out of network with that plan. In these cases, we would ask that, if you receive payment from your plan, please deposit the check and send the same amount to Inspire Diagnostics. Please note the name of the person so that we can ensure the payment is applied to the proper claim.
