Fetter Health Care Network (FHCN), a Federally Qualified Health Center in partnership with Charleston County Municipalities and Government, operates a mobile COVID-19 Respiratory Collection Test Site in Charleston County.
The mobile testing starts operations on Monday, May 4 and will open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with walk-up and drive-up stations. Individuals will be asked to employ social distancing while waiting for testing and requested to wear face coverings. For information on the mobile testing unit’s schedule and specific location information, visit FetterCovid19Screening.org. The mobile testing team will serve a new location each day. The following schedule will be implemented:
Individuals who have a known exposure to COVID-19 or are experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms can request a screening at FetterCovid19Screening.org or by calling 1-800-365-7410 to connect with a Fetter provider who will determine the need for testing. Tests will be given by appointments only and require a special, unique code. Although same-day testing will be available, individuals are encouraged to get screened before arriving for quicker service.
“Our Fetter team is honored to serve our communities,” said Aretha R. Jones-Powers, CEO of Fetter Health Care Network. “We quickly accepted the call from Charleston County as we understand the need to reach those vulnerable populations without access to transportation.”
Currently, all insurance providers in South Carolina are covering the cost of COVID-19 testing. Patient insurance information will be processed in order to complete testing. No co-pays or deductibles are being charged. All patients will be served regardless of their ability to pay.
