HSA recently launched an online appointment booking tool for the public to schedule free COVID-19 screening tests https://www.hsa.ky/Appointment/. Testing is by appointment only and must be made at least 2 business days in advance. Appointment times are currently available between 7:30am - 8:20am Monday - Friday.
If a COVID-19 test is required for travel purposes, travelers are reminded to check the entry requirements for the country you are flying to, as some have testing guidelines in place (ie: 72 hours prior to travel), therefore the date of your COVID-19 test must be timed up with your departure. As part of the online appointment booking form, travelers will be asked to enter their departure date.
All persons screened are also enrolled into the free MyHSA Patient Portal which provides 24 hour secure access to your health information as well as other convenient features. For more information on how to set up a Patient Portal Account, visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wD1cpfdeRkM.
