TESTING FOR COVID-19

Congress passed a federal bill to expand testing for COVID-19. As Illinois acquires more testing materials and grows its testing capacity, it will become easier for people to access testing. The state has implemented guidelines that no longer require a person exhibiting symptoms to have a doctor’s order to access a test and those who are not insured or under-insured will not be turned away for testing.

ACCESSING HEALTHCARE

For all medical providers listed below: call first, tell the operator or receptionist that you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, and would like to be evaluated over the phone. Do not go to a community health center or your regular doctor’s office without calling first.

Uninsured and low / no-income residents who need non-emergency medical services should locate their nearest community health center (CHC) at https://findahealthcenter.hrsa.gov. CHCs receive funding from the federal government that allows them to charge each patient on a sliding scale fee based on the patient’s income and ability to pay.

If you have insurance and believe you need non-emergency medical services, you can contact your insurance carrier to help locate care or to use a telemedicine service like Teledoc. If you have misplaced your insurance card, your employer’s benefits manager (usually human resources department) can provide you with the contact information.
