Testing Sites

Visit the Texas Department of State Health Services testing site for a list of testing sites across Texas.

Testing site guidelines

  • Some sites may require physician referral or prior authorization, and the site may change their requirements daily, so please call the site to confirm requirements.
  • Some sites may not test an individual who does not currently have COVID-19 symptoms.
  • It is strongly recommended that employees wait at least 5 days from exposure before testing to minimize false negative results.

Helpful information to review prior to visiting a clinic/test site

  • Does the testing site require a physician referral? Some sites may require a physician referral or prior authorization. The testing site requirements are subject to change daily. Please call the site to confirm requirements.
  • Is the testing site in-network for my insurance provider? Call ahead to verify if the testing site accepts insurance. Each of the LISD BCBS medical plans are under the Blue Choice PPO network.
  • Will I have any cost upfront? Testing sites and or clinics may require a physician consultation or telemedicine visit prior to administering the test. The consultation will apply to your plan coverage, which may result in upfront costs (i.e. copays/deductible).
  • What type of test does the testing site offer? Call ahead to verify the test type offered (COVID-19 diagnostic, Antibody, etc.).

Employee COVID-19 Benefit Resources

MDLive 

MDLive COVID-19 Info

Applicable to employees enrolled in one of the LISD medical plans

  • If you are enrolled in one of the LISD medical plans and you or one of your family members becomes ill, you can visit a doctor on demand through MDLIVE – remember that in most cases you do not need to go to the emergency room.  MDLIVE allows you to speak with a doctor 24/7 in the comfort of your home.  You can speak to a doctor immediately or schedule an appointment later. 
  • Cost: PPO Plan: $35 copay and CDHP: $44 copy until the deductible is met, then coinsurance.

CVS Refills & Home Delivery

Applicable to employees enrolled in one of the LISD medical plans

  • CVS is allowing you to refill your maintenance medications up to 90 days and offering free home delivery on all prescription medications.
  • Relaxed refill restrictions: CVS Caremark is temporarily waiving early refill limits on 30-day prescriptions for maintenance medications at any in-network pharmacy. You can now fill maintenance medication prescriptions ahead of schedule.
  • Free home delivery: CVS Pharmacy® has waived charges for home delivery of all prescription medications. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) encourages people at higher risk for COVID-19 complications to stay at home as much as possible, so this convenient option can help you avoid coming to the pharmacy for refills or new maintenance prescriptions. As always, there is no charge for delivery of prescriptions filled by CVS Caremark Mail Service pharmacy, when you choose mail.
