NEXT|HEALTH COVID-19 SCREENING & CONSENT
This page is intended to serve as confirmation of informed consent for COVID-19 Immune Globulin, PCR, and Rapid Antigen Testing services at NEXT|HEALTH.

I understand that NextHealth is providing a non-FDA approved blood test for COVID Antibodies, PCR nasal swab for molecular specific and antigen testing for rapid results which function under an FDA recognized EUA ( Emergency Use Authorization) for increased testing capability which are both recognized under high complex laboratory conditions and CLIA waived certifications.

I understand that the PCR nasal swab is an FDA approved test for the detection of COVID-19.

I understand that the lab cost includes a processing fee for all COVID testing to help cover the “cost” to NextHealth which includes staff time for the blood draw and shipping/handling of the specimen, as well as interpretation and result reporting along with increased sanitation and personal protective equipment supplied to all staff. This fee does not include any subsequent medical care. NextHealth is not responsible for any medical care beyond providing you with the results of the test. If I have symptoms or require additional care, testing or follow up, I will seek out the guidance of my primary care provider, and I understand I am financially responsible for this. There are NO refunds or complimentary repeat tests offered. All tests must be paid for in full at the price quoted before each test is performed. I understand that all testing done at Next|Health is not covered by insurance and I understand that if I submit an insurance claim for it, that I will be responsible for any and all non covered services.

I acknowledge that Next|Health, Registered Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, and Physicians are not my primary medical provider. If I do not have a primary care provider, I will seek one out immediately.

I agree that I understand that I have been informed of the procedure of taking the
blood specimen, and any feasible alternative options, and the risks and benefits as detailed as follows:
The procedure of a blood draw involves inserting a needle into a vein and drawing blood to send to a lab.

During this process, there is a chance for delays, lost specimens, or incorrect results that are not the responsibility of Next|Health.   I also understand that my personal results may be subject to reporting requirements of the study protocol, the CDC, or federal, state or local regulatory bodies.   I understand that my blood or other specimen will be sent off site to the respected laboratories testing facility, and my personal health information will be disclosed to the lab for identification purposes and if needed to the local health department and CDC for tracking.

I am aware that other unforeseeable complications could occur. I do not expect the Registered Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Physicians, and/or other staff members to anticipate and/or explain all risks and possible complications.

I understand the risks and benefits and alternatives of the procedure and have had the opportunity to have all of my questions answered in terms and language that I can understand.
