If you think you need or want a COVID-19 test, contact your primary care physician.   He/she can help you decide if this is right for you as well as guide you to a legitimate testing site.  Many sites are claiming to have the COVID-19 test, but things aren’t always as they seem.  Read the story here.

In Ohio, you can find legitimate testing sites on the Ohio Department of Health website. The website shows a combination of private companies and retail sites, Community Health Centers, and pop-up sites that offer testing.

The Ohio SMP provides information and counseling on Medicare errors, fraud and abuse.  If you suspect Medicare fraud, please contact the Ohio SMP at 1 800-488-6070, option 7, or use the “Report Fraud” icon on this app.
