What to Expect for your Asymptomatic COVID-19 Testing Appointment
Once you confirm your appointment, you will receive a text message or email with check-in information and additional instructions for your test. The online check-in process is mandatory in order for our staff to complete your testing at your scheduled time.
Asymptomatic testing is done at an off-site location at 7147 Vista Drive in West Des Moines and is no longer held at the main Iowa Clinic campus in West Des Moines.
When you arrive for your test, spots near the south entrance will be designated. You do not need to wait in your vehicle and can proceed directly to the designated entrance to check in for your test.
Please plan to arrive 5 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time and wear a mask. If possible, come to your appointment alone. Visitors accompanying patients are not permitted unless assistance is needed, or the patient is a minor.
You will be notified by an Iowa Clinic staff member of your results. You will be given a signed note from your attending provider that verifies you have been tested for COVID-19. When your results are in, they will be uploaded to your MyHealth Patient Portal. If you do not have a portal, you will be instructed on how to set one up upon arrival for your testing appointment.
Your insurance will be billed for the COVID-19 lab test and the nurse visit to obtain the test. If you have no insurance, you will be financially responsible for your visit.
