COVID CLINIC UPDATE

If your child participates in our weekly testing each Monday, please read the announcement below from Covid Clinic.

Please watch this detailed video: https://vimeo.com/699606532

We tested you or your child in the past:
We will continue to test free of charge. The government requires our school and Covid Clinic to ask if parents have insurance or are uninsured. Please fill out the form below. YOU WILL NOT BE CHARGED!!!
https://secure.covidclinic.org/insurance/

Please watch this detailed video: https://vimeo.com/699606532

IMPORTANT: We have provided COVID-19 testing for you or your dependents during the COVID-19 pandemic. A new California law (SB 510) took effect January 1, 2022, and requires California private insurance plans to pay for ALL COVID-19 testing received by you and your dependents at any time during the COVID-19 pandemic, at no cost to you. Additionally, federal funding via HRSA will no longer cover testing for those without insurance. To make sure you and your dependents receive the benefit of this new law, and so you do not receive a bill from us for COVID-19 testing, we need your insurance information now. Once you provide us with accurate insurance information, we will bill and accept payment from your insurance plan (at no out of pocket cost to you or your dependents) for any COVID-19 testing received from us in the past or in the future. But without your accurate insurance information, we cannot help you and your dependents to receive the benefit of this new law.

Please contact Covid Clinic at k12@covidclinic.org with any questions.

Thank you.
