At Get Well Urgent Care, we fully empathize with the hardships that the current pandemic has placed on everyone. However, the only way through this pandemic is to continue with caution and care.

We are proud to offer COVID-19 testing at Get Well Urgent Care and to be a part of the fight against this devastating virus.
What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
Typically, symptoms of COVID-19 are not immediately apparent in those it has infected. Such symptoms usually appear within two to 14 days of infection, and often include some combination of the following:
- Chills, with or without repeated shaking
- Muscle pain
- Shortness of breath
- Sore throat
- Sudden loss of smell or taste
If you experience any combination of the above, you are likely a candidate for COVID-19 testing. Please call us or call your regular healthcare provider to determine your eligibility for testing and to set up a time for you to get tested at a facility such as ours at Get Well Urgent Care. If you are experiencing any emergency symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, persistent chest pain or pressure, confusion, or bluish lips or face, seek immediate medical attention at your nearest emergency room. Such symptoms are warning signs that COVID-19 has advanced within your body.
Does health insurance cover COVID-19?
Some good news in these trying times is that almost every medical insurance company in the state of Michigan has waived all cost-sharing fees for COVID-19 testing! As such, most health insurance plans cover all testing for COVID-19. Everyone who should be tested must get tested, and the cost of testing should not hinder that. A few of the health insurance plans that have waived cost-sharing fees include Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Alliance, Humana, McLaren, Meridian, Molina, Priority, and United Healthcare. We accept all of these insurance plans and more at Get Well Urgent Care!
When will I get my test results back?
The time it takes for test results to come back varies. Depending on the location of the testing facility, how severe your symptoms are, and whether or not you work in the healthcare sector, test results can come back the same day or can take up to a week to return to you. At the testing facility, the medical professional conducting the test will give you an estimate for how long you should expect to wait.
Who is most at risk of getting COVID-19?
Based on the current information regarding COVD-19, experts believe that the virus is especially hazardous for individuals aged 65 or older, anyone of any age with an underlying medical condition compromised immune system, or anyone that lives in a nursing home or long-term care facility. However, it is known that COVID-19 can infect anyone of any age, regardless of their current health status. Some cases of COVID-19 are even spread from people who are asymptomatic, meaning that they are infected but do not manifest any symptoms. As such, everyone must be taking the proper precautions with this disease to ensure that those who are most vulnerable to it are kept safe.
What should I do to protect myself from COVID-19?
In order to protect yourself, those you care about, and everyone around you from contracting COVID-19, it is crucial that you adhere to the guidelines regarding social distancing, hygiene, and cleanliness. As such, protecting yourself from COVID-19 includes frequent handwashing with soap and water, avoidance of touching your face with unwashed hands, staying home if you are sick and giving others space who are sick, covering your face and mouth when sneezing, maintaining a physical distance of six feet apart as much as possible, and frequent disinfecting of surfaces.
