COVID-19 Testing Information – November 2020

Needing to be tested for COVID-19?

If you are an existing Platte Valley Medical Clinic patient and experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, call us at 308-865-2263 to speak to a nurse and schedule an appointment at our Respiratory Clinic. Clinical diagnosis will be done by one of our physicians. All testing will be submitted through the Public Health Lab in Omaha in accordance with current CDC guidelines. Turnaround times for test results are around 72 hours. Tests are billed to insurance and typically covered by all major insurers.

You may also choose to utilize Test Nebraska. To do so, simply visit https://www.testnebraska.com and fill out their short questionnaire. You will then be emailed information about the nearest testing location. These tests are free. Turnaround time on tests is also about 72 hours.

Currently, Rapid Testing is NOT available in the state outside of in-house patient testing for hospitalized persons. We hope to see faster turnaround times and expanded in-house testing available soon.
