COVID-19 Free Care (CARES ACT)

Now virtually treating families in Colorado, Hawaii, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Tennessee, and Texas!

The CARES Act

Urgent Care for Kids/Virtual Care for Families is making sure ALL families are able to have an active COVID-19 or antibody test, with or without insurance.

Under the CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid Relief & Economic Security Act), we are able to provide FREE care to uninsured families of all ages for active COVID-19 and antibody testing. This covers the telemedicine visit, the testing costs at our clinics, as well as the third-party lab costs through Quest or CPL labs (Quest and CPL labs are covering their costs for uninsured families who need COVID-19/antibody testing).

To participate in this government program, you meet the requirements to the terms and conditions.

  • Patient must have a Social Security Number or equivalent
  • By completing this form, you confirm that you DO NOT have private insurance of any kind.
  • You are NOT enrolled in any government medical insurance programs such as Medicaid and Medicare.
  • You are above the age of 18 and this medical visit is for you alone OR you are filling this form out as a parent, guardian, or legal custodian of a child.
  • The United States CARES Act only covers costs associated with COVID-19 Screenings and labs related to COVID-19. CARES Act DOES NOT cover medications prescribed associated with the telemedicine visit or lab tests not related to COVID-19.
  • If you have any form of insurance but do not want to use that insurance, you are NOT ELIGIBLE for this free visit.
  • You agree to have your information verified and be billed at full price if your information is falsified.

If you all of the above apply to you, find a location near you to start your free testing. Adults must conduct a virtual visit first as we are not taking walk-ins for adults at this time due to increased patient volumes:

*Free active COVID-19 and antibody tests at our clinics are only applicable for families testing at one of our clinics. If you are not close to one of our 14 Texas clinics (click here to see locations) or live outside of Texas, our telemedicine visit is still covered, however, active COVID-19 testing fees depends on your nearby clinic. Quest lab testing fees are covered for uninsured families throughout the United States.

Free Testing Process

Step 1: Identify Symptoms/Causes

If you have recently traveled, been in a large group of people, and/or are experiencing feverfatiguedry coughdifficulty breathingaches & painsrunny nosesore throat, and/or diarrhea, please consider being testing for COVID-19.

Step 2: Visit our Clinic

Upon arrival, you may choose a free rapid COVID-19 test, a free PCR test, or a free antibody test to be conducted inside the clinic. For a rapid test, results are the same day. For a PCR test, results can take 3–7 days, depending on the testing lab. For an antibody test, results can take 2–5 days.

Patients 21 years and younger may walk-in the clinic for a COVID-19 test, but adults 22+ years must pre-register for an appointment ahead of time through Virtual Care for Families.

(Due to high demand, telemedicine and in-clinic appointments may not be available same-day)

Step 3: Free Testing

Below is a flowchart outlining the process of free active COVID-19 (rapid or PCR) and antibody testing at one of our clinics for uninsured families:

Step 3: Pick a Location
