Work Safe Testing Solutions

Cogent Medical Laboratory is proud to offer a work safe testing program that Employers can use to provide periodic and scheduled testing for both Active and Historic Infection testing of the SARS-CoV-2 viral strain.

Overview

Identifying contagious individuals may never show symptoms, so temperature checks and questionnaires may prove ineffective. Every day that a contagious employee reports to work is a day that other employees are put at risk. If keeping your workforce healthy is a priority for you, then we can help.

 

Having objective laboratory data to support your Organization's SOP's will position Employers to reopen and stay open.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can employers mandate testing? 

    • According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), mandatory testing is permitted while COVID-19 remains a "direct threat".

  2. How must medical records be treated?

    • Employee medical records are restricted by the ADA to certain authorized uses and personnel and must be handled with care. 

    • Laboratories are subject to all HIPAA guidelines, and will require valid authorizations to release results to employers. 

  3. How are tests ordered?

    • ​Certain States allow Direct Access Testing (DAT), and with this testing program, tests can be ordered by an Employer, and scheduled out.  ​

  4. What factors determine the cost per employee?

    • Frequency of Testing - One time only, Bi-weekly, and Weekly testing options available. Typically, you want to test for Active Infections weekly or bi-weekly, and Historic Infections (IgG Antibody) monthly. 

    • Number of Employees needing tested

    • Pre-payment for services guarantees allocation for testing volumes and provides the most discount.
