COVID Testing

COVID testing is completed each day at 4 p.m. If a student, faculty or staff member needs to be tested for COVID, please call: 270.809.3809 to schedule a virtual visit today.

The first priority for testing is given to individuals who are at high-risk of exposure to COVID-19 or are displaying symptoms of COVID-19. Like all health facilities in the community, Murray State Health Services/Primary Care/Village MD first asks for and accepts insurance; however if an individual cannot pay for a COVID-19 test, the University will cover these costs in full. Murray State Health Services/Primary Care/Village MD also does not charge an administrative fee for our students when they are seen.

We also allow students to be tested wherever they wish.  At Murray State, we don’t charge but let the testing company bill their insurance for which there is to be no co-pay, balance billing, or student liability.

When there is a tele-visit in advance of the testing, it is to obtain key medical information about the student’s health, pre and post planning based upon the results of the COVID-19 testing for treatment and possible quarantine purposes, and the collection of data we are required to report timely.

Services

Patients who visit the on-campus location and are in need of additional treatment or consultation will receive priority service at the Main Office located at 1000 South 12th Street presenting their Murray State RacerCard ID.

Payment

Primary Care will file insurance claims or provide services on a pay-per-visit basis for individuals who do not have or do not wish to use health insurance. 

Self-pay for students without insurance or who do not wish to bill their insurance is $65.00.
The self-pay cost includes services like office visit, complete blood count, urinalysis, flu test, mono test, strep test, glucose, minor laceration repairs, wound, abscess drainage, and burn care.
