Urgent Care Locations Offering Covid-19 Testing
New Federal Guideline Removes Barriers to Testing
As Coronavirus cases trend downward and vaccinations are ramping up across the state, all four MRPG Urgent Care locations (Franklin, Hopkinton, Milford and Northbridge) continue to offer “walk-in” Covid-19 testing for patients. The type of testing you will have (rapid antigen or PCR) is determined by the healthcare provider, based on symptoms.
We are happy to announce that due to the recent Executive Order signed by the Biden Administration, diagnostic testing for Covid-19 is now fully covered by health insurance and will NO LONGER require an out of pocket cost. The guidance makes clear that private group health plans cannot use medical screening criteria to deny coverage for Covid-19 diagnostic tests for individuals with health coverage who are asymptomatic, and who have no known or suspected exposure to Covid-19. With that said, it is always best to contact your health insurer to ensure that Milford Regional Physician Group is a participating provider in your network.
