*Children under the age of 12 are not eligible for drive through testing due to risk and safety concerns. If their parents/legal guardians would like them to be tested, they should seek testing at the Peak Vista Risk Assessment Center, or one of our primary care locations conducting testing. For more information, please call (719) 632-5700.

Visitors will be asked to:

    • Fill out a demographic form prior to testing. (This collects basic demographic information such as income and family size to determine if the patient qualifies for any assistance.)
    • We will also be screening patients for a sliding fee scale discount.
    • Present a form of ID and insurance card, if applicable.

The COVID-19 test involves a swab of a patient’s nose while staying in their car. No appointment or referral is needed to receive testing. Please note, there should be no more than two people per car.

All tests will be processed through Quest Diagnostics, and those individuals who are tested at the drive-through site will receive a phone call with their results from a Peak Vista provider. They are asked to stay home and avoid public transit and public places like grocery stores until they get their results. Cost to administer the COVID-19 test is $69

If your symptoms worsen, please seek emergency care if you have difficulty breathing or have other signs of a medical emergency.

Peak Vista is currently accepting new patients. For more information or to enroll as a new patient please CLICK HERE or call us directly at (719) 632-5700.
