To expand the number of blood plasma donations, LabCorp announced on August 11, 2020, details of a no-charge antibody testing program. For the next 3-months, LabCorp will perform the high-affinity coronavirus antibody test at no-charge to patients, insurance companies, or the government.

And when patients are receiving other medically necessary blood tests as part of a medically necessary exam or treatment, this program enables providers to add the SARS-CoV-2 Antibodies Test to the same order, at no charge.

The no-charge high-affinity antibody testing program will use the Roche Elecsys® Anti-SARS-CoV-2 and does not apply to other COVID-19 antibody tests, such as the IgG test. Patients will be able to access their results through the LabCorp Patient™ portal and through their doctor.
