COVID-19 TEST FOR TRAVEL PURPOSES

Since COVID-19 testing in asymptomatic patients for travel purposes is not considered a medical necessity, most insurance plans do NOT cover it.

To know more about your specific plan coverage and confirm whether your visit and test for travel purposes will be fully covered or not by your insurance, please call the member services phone number on your insurance card.

We further recommend, to check the airlines AND your destination COVID 19 testing requirements to appropriately plan the timing of your COVID 19 test. Especially, for individuals travelling to Hawaii, please check the Hawaii travel website as they have a very specific criteria.

As noted above, we offer COVID PCR test which is the gold standard accepted COVID 19 test by most airlines/destinations.*

The Rapid PCR test, with a guaranteed turnaround time of 12-24 hours is the most favorable for most patients. But if you prefer, we do also have the regular COVID PCR test, but the turnaround time depends on the lab and is not guaranteed.

*Please note, Lani City Medical is not responsible for your destination or airline accepting or rejecting the test results based on the type of test. We highly recommend you check with the airline and your destination, on whether they accept COVID PCR test or not.
