COVID-19 Testing Updates

In response to the growing demand for COVID-19 testing, we want to keep you informed about the testing capabilities at The University Family Health Clinic and WRNMMC. There are two main classifications for COVID-19 testing: symptomatic and asymptomatic.

Symptomatic testing is when patients are tested for COVID-19 because they have symptoms of a COVID-19 infection. If you are experiencing symptoms of a COVID-19 infection, you can be tested for COVID-19 at the Walter Reed Emergency Room (24/7) or Central Screening Area (Monday – Friday, 7am – 4pm) without an appointment.

Asymptomatic testing is when patients are tested for COVID-19 without experiencing any symptoms. Asymptomatic testing is permitted for only a few pre-determined circumstances, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and approved by the Department of Defense and National Capital Region Market. At this time, due to nationwide shortages in laboratory reagent supplies, asymptomatic testing is NOT authorized at WRNMMC and The University Family Health Clinic for school, camp, daycare or nursing home admittance, extracurricular/similar activities, or personal travel. TRICARE also does not cover asymptomatic testing for these reasons.

Please contact your healthcare provider if you have questions about asymptomatic COVID-19 testing.

For more information about tests covered by TRICARE, please visit tricare.mil or call 1-800-444-5445.

 

We will update this information as it changes but is current as of September 1, 2020
