DuBois, PATruCare Internal Medicine in DuBois is helping to offer antibody tests for people in our area.

Dr. Tuesdae Stainbrook says she knew it was important to offer this kind of COVID-19 testing.

The blood draw antibody tests are available to anyone who wants one, particularly if you feel you may have encountered the novel coronavirus. Please do not request a test if you currently feel sick.

This test is meant to determine if you have antibodies from a previous COVID-19 infection.

Although there is no proven confirmation, it’s believed that having these antibodies could provide an immunity from getting the virus again.

The test is done via a blood draw at TruCare, then sent for analysis at a national laboratory, BioReference.

To adhere to social distancing, these tests are by appointment only.

Your copay and deductible will still apply for whatever insurance you carry, but they have been told that insurance should cover the test. If you are uninsured, it will cost $75.
