Schedule Now

Please bring your ID and a credit card. Cash is not accepted. By scheduling through this link, you agree that you will be charged $65, payable by credit card at the testing site. For testing scheduled through the link, we do not bill insurance, although you can attempt to submit your bill for reimbursement. If your test is for travel purposes, we recommend scheduling your appointment 72 hours before travel times. Test results are available by the next day through your MyUCSDChart account. (If you don't have one, your appointment confirmation email will include a link to create one.) If your results are positive, you will also receive a call.


For information about the testing process, results delivery, and who can be tested, see UC San Diego Health COVID Testing.


* Other COVID-19 Testing Options

There are other testing options that may be covered by insurance. For details, see UC San Diego Health COVID Testing.

If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed, we recommend calling your primary care provider (or 800-926-8273 for UC San Diego Health patients) to ensure that the cost of testing is covered by your health insurance. 

** Hawaii Travel

Although we were recently listed as one of the state of Hawaii's travel partners, that service is not yet operational. We expect to offer testing for Hawaii travel by early December. We will update this website promptly when we have a firm date.
