How much does testing cost?

This information can change, please double-check sources for information, and continue to monitor sources or back here for updates.

Most health insurers in Oregon have agreed to waive co-pays, co-insurance and deductibles for:

  • COVID-19 testing,

  • An in-network provider office visit or a visit to an in-network urgent care center to be tested for COVID-19,

  • An emergency room visit to be tested for COVID-19, and

  • Immunization for COVID-19, should it become available.

Regular terms of insurance such as co-payments, co-insurance and deductibles will still apply for other parts of a visit to a healthcare provider. For more information, contact your health insurer and visit the Department of Consumer and Business Services website.

Those who are uninsured should apply for Oregon Health Plan (OHP) coverage, which fully covers the cost of getting tested for COVID-19 if they need it. Visit the sign-up page to start today.

If you don't want to sign up for OHP, we encourage you to see a clinician through your county health clinic or through a federally qualified health clinic (FQHC). Download this list of Oregon FQHCs, or if you would like assistance finding resources, contact us
