We have the answers to your most common questions about COVID-19 visits at Citra Urgent Care.

Our medical staff will assess you to ensure you are being treated accurately and with the highest level of care.
Does my insurance cover this visit?
Citra Urgent Care follows the guidance from the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which mandates that insurance companies must fully cover the cost of COVID-19 testing and treatment.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY WILL DETERMINE YOUR PAYMENT RESPONSIBILITY, AND YOU MAY RECEIVE A BILL IF THEY DECIDE NOT TO PAY. We will continue to monitor the legislation as it evolves.
