Coronavirus (COVID-19) Testing

USC Pharmacy has partnered with Quest Diagnostics, LabCorp, Keck Medicine of USC Clinical Laboratories, and P23 Labs/Azova to offer COVID-19 testing by appointment. Please call (323) 442-5992 to schedule an appointment with a pharmacist. 

Schedule an appointment

COVID-19 testing (with either nasal swab or saliva) is currently available by appointment at the USC Medical Plaza Pharmacy. The testing process will take approximately 20 minutes. The time to receive results may vary and can take 2 to 5 days; same-day results may be available in certain situations.  

Costs

You may be able to have COVID-19 testing fully paid by your health plan or the federal government, with no out-of-pocket cost. When possible, we will bill your insurance for the test. If you do not have insurance, we may be able to request public funding. If the test is not covered by your health plan or public funding, then you will be charged for the costs of the test.

Additionally, individuals have the right to pay directly for testing that they do not wish to submit to insurance or the government for reimbursement. For those who choose to pay directly, you understand that services purchased are solely your financial responsibility. The cash price for COVID-19 testing at USC Pharmacy is as follows:

  • Saliva Sample – $129
  • Nasal Swab Sample – $150

At-Home Testing

We offer at-home testing available for patients who cannot come into the pharmacy. Purchase an at-home COVID-19 saliva test here. It will be mailed to you at your home to self-administer, then you send your completed kit back to the laboratory and get your results.

Please call (323) 442-5992 to schedule an appointment with a pharmacist.
