Overview

The Penn State Health OnDemand app offers patients options for care from wherever they are!

Getting sick is inconvenient, but getting care shouldn't be. In today’s environment, the app is the easiest way to see a doctor without ever leaving your home.

OnDemand COVID-19 Services

COVID-19 Screening Consultations

Do you think you have COVID-19 symptoms? Use the app to connect with a Penn State Health provider at no cost through the app to get screened. If additional medical testing care or testing is warranted, the provider will advise you on the next steps to take. This free service is only for patients currently experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.

Hours: COVID-19 virtual screening consultations are available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

OnDemand COVID-19 Travel Testing

If you are travelling nationally or internationally, you may need proof of a negative COVID-19 test. Our app can help. Just choose the travel testing service, answer a few questions and then you’ll be connected through a virtual visit to a Penn State Health provider who can refer you to one of our travel testing sites in Dauphin or Berks Counties. You must be asymptomatic and not exposed to a known COVID positive patient to be eligible for travel testing.

Testing is done through a nasopharyngeal swab and is appropriate for adults and children of any age. Results are available within 48 hours or sooner, and will be posted in the Penn State Health patient portal. If you need assistance setting up your patient portal, our team can help during your virtual visit.

Either self-pay or insurance may be used for COVID-19 travel testing. The self-pay cost of each travel test is $130 per person and is payable by credit or debit card only. Payment and/or insurance information will be collected when you arrive to the physical testing location. Please note, if you elect to bill through insurance and your insurance provider rejects the charge, you will receive a bill for the $130 fee. It’s recommended to check with your insurance provider prior to testing.

For guidance on travel and when testing is needed, please follow CDC guidance.

Hours: Covid-19 Travel Testing virtual visits are available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
