Together Lincoln County, Covid-19 Testing Campaign,” questions have arisen.  After some investigation here is what we have discovered:

  • The Curative SARS-Cov-2 test (the one being used in the “Together Lincoln County,”) Covid-19 Campaign will be billed to the test recipient’s medical insurance.

  • It would be advisable to anyone who plans to take the test, to first check with their insurance carrier to make sure the Curative SARS-Cov-2 test is covered and that they are eligible to receive the test.  

  • Curative Labs, Inc., will bill your insurance health plan $325 per test ($250 plus $75 collection fee).

  • The Cares Act states the insurance companies should pay for the test.  However, some questions remain: which providers are covered, does the test meet the provider’s formulary requirements and how many tests per year are covered?

  • CVS Pharmacies offer the same test at specific locations. Their charge to insurance companies is $139, which includes $100 to an independent lab for processing and $39 for your MinuteClinic visit.

  • Date Issued: January 4, 2021 The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is alerting patients and health care providers of the risk of false results, particularly false negative results, with the Curative SARS-Cov-2 test. Risks to a patient of a false negative result include: delayed or lack of supportive treatment, lack of monitoring infected individuals and their household or other close contacts for symptoms, resulting in increased risk of spread of COVID-19 within the community or other unintended adverse events.

  • To reduce the risk of false negative results, it is important to perform the test in accordance with its authorization and as described in the authorized labeling, e.g., the Fact Sheet for Healthcare Providers. When the test is not performed in accordance with its authorization or as described in the authorized labeling, there is a greater risk that the results of the test may not be accurate. 


No Covid-19 Tests are 100% accurate.  The Curative SARS-Cov-2 test will be offered in Carrizozo three Thursdays in a row at 405 12th St. from 9AM – Noon, January 14th, 21st and 28th.

People will need to register to receive the test.
