Book a COVID-19 PCR Swab Test
We now have two COVID-19 testing locations to serve you:
COVID-19 virus testing at Innovative Express Care is fast and easy.
We offer virus testing 7 days/week in Chicago, and Monday through Friday in Downers Grove.
Due to high demand for COVID-19 appointments, our schedule is often fully booked. Additional appointments (150/day) are released daily at 8:00am to accommodate patients who require a same-day visit. Please check back for availability.
Appointments are required.
When will I get my test results?
We offer PCR swab tests and Rapid COVID-19 tests. Both tests are anterior nasal swab tests that are less invasive than the nasopharyngeal tests being used at many sites.
PCR tests are sent to external labs for processing. Results are available in 2-4 days.
Rapid test results will be available by 9 PM on the same day of the test.
Please note, the rapid COVID-19 test (Sofia SARS-CoV-2 antigen FIA by Quidel) is only available to patients who are currently experiencing symptoms, or who have had a known virus exposure. A swab test is always performed along with the rapid test for quality standards. For more information, visit our rapid testing page.
Will you take my insurance?
We accept most insurance plans (PPOs, Medicare, and the Advocate hospital system HMO) and provide FREE care to uninsured patients under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. If you have Medicaid, or an insurance we do not accept, you may self-pay $250 for the examination and COVID-19 test.
Schedule an appointment
If there are no appointments available, we are currently at capacity. Please continue to check back for openings. Our Diversey location releases 150 appointments at 8am each morning to accommodate same-day visits. We cannot guarantee appointments and walk-ins are not accepted due to the high volume of patients we see daily.
Flu Shots Now Available
Flu vaccines are now available to asymptomatic patients who come for COVID-19 testing. This is for your convenience. The flu vaccine is only offered as an add-on to our COVID-19 testing. If you only need a flu vaccine, please schedule an appointment at our urgent care. The vaccine costs $40 out of pocket or can be billed to insurance.
