COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Complete Care in Colorado Springs is able to offer COVID-19 testing with same-day results. The reason for this is because they have an in house lab that allows them to do testing quickly.
For a PCR test, also known as the gold standard for COVID-19 testing, results take about 45-60 minutes. For a rapid antigen test, it takes about 15 minutes to find out the results.
Dr. Adrian Miranda at Complete Care facility says it is best to only get tested at their facility if experiencing symptoms.
"Asymptomatic patients could have a false negative rate of 50 to 68%. However, if you're symptomatic, the accuracy of the test is 96.7%," said Miranda.
Complete Care also recommends getting tested three to five days post exposure. According to Complete Care, they accept most insurances, but if paying out of pocket, statewide the test can cost anywhere from $100 to $500.
