COVID-19 Testing Prices
In accordance with the CARES act, our charge for COVID-19 specimen testing is $56 for the low throughput test and $100 for the high throughput test. These prices are effective April 11, 2020. The high throughput test is the most common test we use. Other tests and screenings may be ordered and provided at the same time of service, which will affect a total bill for this service. Our charge for the COVID-19 antibody (serology) testing is $43 and is also effective April 11, 2020.
The cost of COVID-19 testing will be submitted to your health insurance, which we will verify when we register you.
If you do not have health insurance, COVID-19 testing is available as a self-pay service for $33.60 (low throughput), $60 (high throughput) and $25.80 for the antibody (serology) testing.

Paying for Healthcare 101
Find free, comprehensive guides on everything you need to know about paying for healthcare, insurance issues and asking the right questions.
To help you understand how much you may owe for a service we provide, we provide lists of estimated prices. Note that these estimates do not represent how much you will owe on your final bill.
You can view these prices in two ways:
- Grouped by condition/treatment category
- Listed by item
Prices Grouped by Category
This list allows you to view prices for specific conditions and inpatient procedures. The Diagnosis-Related Group (DRG) Estimate listing provides the median historical case rates for the last year for UVA Health only.
This does not include other expenses, such as for:
- Home health services
- Other pre- and post-operative care
The final bill you receive will include charges for actual services provided to you. You're responsible for any additional charges.
This list of prices can be misleading. The listed prices almost never match the actual prices or the amount you will owe.
Prices Listed by Item
The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) requires hospitals to make standard prices for the items and services they provide available to patients.
The term "standard prices" can be misleading. They almost never match the actual costs or the amount you will owe.
How to Read the Standard Price List
You should read this list of standard prices (also called a "chargemaster") as a list of single, individualized items. Your care may include many of these items combined together.
Prices are valid as of Jan 1, 2020.
Prices of Provider Services
In addition to the hospital charges listed above, you're responsible for paying the doctors and other providers who perform services and procedures.
You can see how much providers charge for performing medical services. These prices reflect estimates provided by the University Physicians Group.
