COVID-19 Testing Locations and Hours

Updated May 4, 2022

Individuals who are scheduled for a procedure, have a known COVID-19 exposure or are symptomatic are encouraged to use our COVID testing service. Please be aware: We are unable to provide testing for individuals needing results for the purposes of travel or attending an event. Additionally, patients who have received a positive COVID test from our St. Charles Lab within the past 90 days, will not be eligible to retest at our St. Charles testing locations.

COVID Testing Information

St. Charles Health System is requesting all COVID-19 collections on pre-surgery and pre-procedural patients to be collected two days prior to their surgery or procedure. All COVID-19 testing is performed in-house at St. Charles Health System. Pre-surgery and pre-procedural patients can complete their COVID testing at our Bend South, Redmond, La Pine, Prineville and Madras Family Care Clinics, but they must have an order from their provider.

Non-St. Charles providers: If you have access, please place the order in St. Charles Health System Epic. Otherwise, fax the order to 541-706-6365 or send a paper order with the patient.

Most people with a health plan can go online, or to a pharmacy or store to purchase an at-home over-the-counter COVID-19 diagnostic test authorized by the FDA at no cost, either through reimbursement or free of charge through their insurance. This applies whether you purchased your health plan on your own or whether you get health insurance through your job.

The test will either be free directly at the point of sale, if your health plan provides for direct coverage, or by reimbursement if you are charged for your test. Be sure to keep your receipt if you need to submit a claim to your insurance company for reimbursement. If your plan has set up a network of preferred providers at which you can obtain a test with no out-of-pocket expense, you can still obtain tests from other retailers outside that network. Insurance companies are required to reimburse you at a rate of up to $12 per individual test (or the cost of the test, if less than $12). 

You can learn more by visiting the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services website at https://www.cms.gov/how-to-get-your-at-home-OTC-COVID-19-test-for-free.

Additionally, every household in the US may request four free at-home COVID-19 tests (regardless of being insured) by ordering them online at https://www.covidtests.gov/.

Our Urgent Care Clinics are able to evaluate patients and provide COVID-19 testing, if warranted, at time of visit. You can now schedule online for a COVID testing appointment at any of our Urgent Care Clinics. Simply click on the "schedule" button for each location. If you need pre-procedural testing, please see "Pre-surgery patients" section above.
