What You Need To Know About COVID-19
We provide two types of COVID-19 testing — PCR (nasal swab) and serum antibody (blood).
We can test both children and adults. This includes healthcare workers and first responders of all ages. In order for patients to be eligible for testing, they must be seen here or referred by a Just 4 Kids provider from a visit on our telemedicine service, Connect 4 Kids via Anytime Pediatrics. If you believe you or your child may need to be tested, please call, text, video chat, or visit us.

Just 4 Kids is offering two kinds of tests for COVID-19 for children and adults. While no test is 100% accurate, we are using reputable local laboratories that do their own internal validation to ensure reliable testing practices.
Any costs associated with processing the lab test are determined by the laboratory. Most insurance carriers are covering the cost of COVID-19 nasal swab testing. We will not be collecting co-pay fees for the test. Your pre-screening visit will be processed through your insurance and they will determine your patient responsibility.

If you or your child have any of these symptoms, have been in direct contact with a person with COVID-19, or live in an area of community spread you should call your primary care provider for next steps or call, text, video chat, or visit our location to consult with one of our medical professionals. The majority of people may feel like they have a common cold or even have no symptoms at all. Currently, the risk for serious illness in children from COVID-19 is low. If your child has any difficulty breathing, please proceed to the nearest emergency department immediately. If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, call 911.
We can perform an assessment of your child in our clinic or on Connect 4 Kids. Please call us upon arrival and await further instruction prior to entering the office so we can address your needs promptly as well as adequately protect staff and other patients.
To promote social distancing, we are offering telemedicine services for those who are hesitant to come to our offices, as well as allowing patients who do come to the office to wait in their cars. We are separating patients sitting in our lobby as much as possible. Our office is always held to a high standard of hygiene and safety and we are following CDC guidelines, sanitizing our equipment, and cleaning our exam rooms thoroughly during business hours and again overnight. We have screening protocols in place starting at our front door with signs to direct patients to immediately speak with our front desk staff if they meet any of the screening criteria.
