Laboratory

Laboratory

Campus Health can provide COVID-19 testing (nasal swab) to determine whether a person is currently infected with the virus.  Campus Health can also provide COVID-19 antibody testing (blood test) to help determine if a person has already been infected with COVID-19.  These tests must be ordered by a Campus Health provider. We send these tests to a reference lab (LabCorp).  Charges apply for both tests. 

What We Do

We are a full service lab providing in-house testing for hematology, urinalysis, parasitology, and point-of-care tests.

How Long It Takes

The time taken depends on the test, although most of the in-house tests are performed while the student waits.

Laboratory Hours

8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  Monday - Friday during Fall and Spring Semesters *Wednesdays the lab opens at 9:00 am.

8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday - Friday during Summer Sessions 

Obtaining Results

Patients may obtain test results from their provider, and some results may be posted to the web portal.

Laboratory Charges

Campus Health is an accredited health care organization and its services are generally covered by insurance plans.  See Using Insurance at Campus Health and see if Campus Health is in-network with your insurance.  You may call your insurance company with questions regarding coverage for lab charges. Any charges not covered by health insurance, including deductibles and co-insurance, will be the patient’s responsibility. 

If you do not want Campus Health to file your insurance, you will need to tell the Lab staff before they perform any lab tests. If you want to pay for the charges, you will have to wait to pay until the lab test results are received. Please contact the Campus Health Billing Office two days after the lab tests are performed by calling (919) 966-6588. Payment Options at Campus Health are cash, check, UNC One Card or Master Card/Visa. If you do not pay Campus Health, the charges will be sent to your UNC student account.

Outside Provider Lab Orders

As of Jan 2, 2020, Campus Health does not accept lab orders from providers outside of Campus Health.  Please make an appointment with a Campus Health provider if you would like to discuss having a lab performed by the laboratory at Campus Health. A discussion is not a guarantee the Campus Health provider will order the labs on behalf of the non-Campus Health provider.  Outside lab orders are often complex and specialized.

Please call 919-966-6563 with any questions.
