Where is the testing done?
Testing is performed at CLIA-certified laboratories that meet or exceed federal validity and accuracy standards. You mail your completed at-home test(s) in a postage-paid package to a lab that partners with Everlywell. Each of these labs complies with all federal and state regulations regarding laboratory testing. Once the processing stage starts, you should typically see your results in your online account within five business days.
Do you need a prescription?
Testing usually requires a written or electronic physician-authorized requisition, but Everlywell works with a network of physicians, and one of them will check your order and authorize all test requisitions. Everlywell currently offers its tests in 49 states, which excludes COVID-19 home collection kits in New York due to the state’s regulations.
Does Everlywell take insurance?
Everlywell isn’t contracted with any insurance companies and can’t bill your health insurance directly. It’s also not enrolled in the Medicare program, and its tests aren’t eligible for Medicare reimbursement. However, Everlywell’s tests are typically priced lower than the out-of-pocket costs you’d pay when testing during an office visit. If you have a health savings account or flex spending account, Everlywell’s tests are usually covered because they’re authorized by a physician. Your insurance provider may reimburse you for COVID-19 tests.
Will Everlywell connect you with a health care provider?
Everlywell works with an independent network of board-certified physicians. A physician checks and approves your lab requisition and reviews your test results. If your COVID-19, chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, hepatitis C, HIV, HPV, trichomoniasis, and/or Lyme disease test(s) returns with a positive result, a consultation from a physician licensed in your state and any applicable prescription(s) are offered at no additional cost.
Are test results accurate?
Everlywell’s at-home sample collection and testing have been meticulously validated against traditional testing completed on-site at clinics and doctor’s offices. Every laboratory Everlywell uses is CLIA-certified, and some are also CAP-accredited, so they must meet or exceed federal standards regarding precision, validity, and accuracy. All labs submit to regular inspections and independent third-party performance verifications to validate the accuracy of their testing.
“This was very simple to use. It is less expensive for me than when I have this same test done at a lab with my insurance co-pay.”
“The Food Sensitivity test was very easy to use. The instructions were clear and concise. Results came in a timely manner and were easy to understand.”
“It was very straightforward and I liked the test results email. Very easy to navigate and informational.”
“A huge issue is they don’t offer phone support, only email support, which could take days to receive a response (if you do).”
“Unorganized Process, Unable to Contact Everlywell by Phone, Slow to No Customer Support.”
“Absolutely cannot recommend. They’ve had my test kit back for two weeks now and I still don’t have my results.”
Everlywell sells over 30 at-home tests, with all testing performed at CLIA-certified labs and results verified by a board-certified physician to ensure accuracy. Your data is kept safe through state-of-the-art, bank-grade encryption. Everlywell offers the convenience of testing from the comfort of your home, but test results may be postponed due to uncontrollable delays with the shipping provider.
