Schedule your Hawaii test

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. Test results are generally available within 48 hours 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.


* COVID-19 Testing and Insurance Coverage

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 or were exposed, we recommend saving your spot for an Urgent Care or Express Care visit so that the cost of testing may be covered by your health insurance as part of your visit. We do not bill insurance for asymptomatic tests, and we cannot provide the documentation usually necessary for insurance reimbursement. For details, see UC San Diego Health COVID Testing.

Hawaii Travel

We are a trusted partner for the Safe Travels Hawai'i program. Because this program requires special forms, please use this link for scheduling and information: Hawaii Test Scheduling and FAQs. The cost for testing and State of Hawaii official form is $125. We are not an official partner for Bora Bora, Tahiti or any destination other than Hawaii. You will receive a receipt confirming payment, but this will not include the information typically required by health plans to obtain reimbursement.
