Q: Is an antibody test available?

A: Ogden Clinic offers a Coronavirus IgG test through LabCorp. Please be aware that this test is not specific to COVID-19 will not confirm immunity to COVID-19 (no antibody test can currently provide certainty of immunity to COVID-19). However, it can help patients identify if he/she may have been exposed to the illness and recovered. The antibody test is a blood draw available at one of our nine urgent care clinics for $40 per test. It is usually not covered by insurance. If you’re interested in receiving an antibody test, please schedule an appointment.
