ATTENTION: The Town of Carrboro was forwarded the following information on 10/1/2020 from the Orange County Health Department in response to complaints about billing from this testing event:
To Our Patients,
We have been notified that you may have received a bill in error from LabTech despite providing guidance that testing is at no cost to patients. Testing costs are billed to patients insurance or the CARES act for uninsured. LabTech has apologized for this error and will direct any billing issues directly to StarMed.
If you have received a bill in error, please do not pay and contact Labtech directly at 864-760-0188 to make them aware. You may be asked to provide additional information in order to bill the CARES act if you do not have insurance.
We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience and understanding.
A COVID-19 testing event will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 22, at Carrboro High School, 201 Rock Haven Road.
The Orange County Health Department is working with StarMed to host the drive through testing. The event targets populations in the southern part of Orange County to include African Americans and immigrant/refugee populations, farmers and migrant farm workers.
Pre-registration strongly encouraged at starmed.care A telehealth appointment is required prior to testing. Failure to schedule and complete the telehealth appointment before testing day results in an additional 30-minute wait time. The state’s latest guidance about testing applies, which means symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals will be tested.
