HAVE INSURANCE?

For the last 7 years we have partnered closely with QuestCare/Envision Physician services to launch our medical clinics and provide excellent medical care. For those with insurance, their offices will be able to guide you towards the best steps for your healthcare needs. 

 

A telehealth visit will cost $49.

Testing will be $70. 

Running your insurance (either private or medicare/medicaid) should cover all of it. 

SELF INSURED?

For the last 7 years we have partnered closely with QuestCare/Envision Physician services to launch our medical clinics and provide excellent medical care. To determine if you need testing, they are available to provide a telehealth visit plus testing at the self-pay costs listed below.

A telehealth visit will cost $49.

Testing will be $70. 

For those with the ability to pay the amounts above through your self-pay system, the QuestCare/Envision offices will be your best step for access to testing services.

NO INSURANCE?

For the last 7 years Watermark Urgent Care has provided urgent care services via 12,000 patient visits a year to the uninsured and underinsured of DFW. Today is no different.

If you do not have insurance or are unable to afford the self-pay rates, we've got you covered. Your first step will be visiting with one of our providers to help determine if you need testing. Please refer to the calendar here or call our Skillman Clinic for more information. 

469-804-8323

If you are able to afford the self pay rate, please consider leaving these services for those that have a true need. You can also find ways to donate to make this available to more under-resourced individuals below.

 

Who should consider initiating the process to be tested? 

You should discuss testing with a provider if you are mild to severe upper respiratory symptoms like cough, shortness of breath, or fever. You might also choose to get tested if you are experiencing symptoms or have been around someone with a known exposure to COVID-19 in close quarters for longer than 15 minutes. HealthCare workers and First Responders are also encouraged to consider being tested. 

What are the testing site details?

This testing site is located at Watermark Community Church's Dallas Campus. Once you and your provider determine you need testing, they will refer you to the site through a formal system and give you detailed directions. The site is open according to the schedule posted here. No "walk ups" will be seen. This is a referral only site. You must have an order from a provider that specifically partners with this location to be tested. Before coming please note you will not be getting out of the car. Restrooms are not available.

Why does this site require a provider referral?

At the core of quality healthcare is a strong patient/provider relationship. It can be tempting to think a test is a fool proof way to know what to do regarding your healthcare and all you need is a positive or negative result. However, it is much more complicated than that (see our FAQs about the accuracy of testing and benefits of testing). By working with a trusted healthcare provider you’ll be able to have someone to answer your questions about testing, help you navigate what to do with the results, and even help you determine if a test is needed. Sometimes your symptoms can be treated without a test being needed. Your provider will help you navigate the best solution for you based on your unique needs and situation.
