Did you know that some Medcare and Urgent Care facilities are charging $150.00 for a 3 day Coronavirus screening? When the patient asked, “Isn’t there anywhere to get this screening free?” the receptionist stated, “not that I know of” as she swiped the woman’s debit card.
Well, after I received my services for a back injury, I went by my local Walgreens and mentioned it to my Pharmacist who immediately told me that Walgreens has a free service to provide Covid-19 screening. The Pharmacist,will call “Abby” handed me a paper that I will post here
I was appalled that Med-cares, Prompt cares and Urgent-cares are charging $150.00 for a 3 day coronavirus screening when there is programs available that pays the full price of the screening (especially to the uninsured)
