MedExpress is performing return-to-work COVID-19 testing* to help ensure your employees can safely return to work.
return-to-work testing: what employers need to know
Testing your employees is the next step in ensuring they remain safe. Whether you choose to send them to a MedExpress center or work with us to create an on-site solution, follow these steps:
1. create an account
Prior to sending your employees to MedExpress, employers must contact our Employer Health Services Sales Team to set up an account and complete the COVID-19 Testing Authorization Form. Employees must present this form when visiting a center to be tested.
If additional services are required, such as a pre-employment physical or drug and alcohol screening, the standard employer authorization form is also required.
2. send employees to be tested
When your employee arrives at a MedExpress COVID-19 testing center with their completed COVID-19 authorization form, our team will register them and take them through the testing process.
3. receive testing results
Once testing results are received from our commercial lab partner, our team will call your employee with their results. It is your employee's responsibility to provide the results to you.
In select parts of the country, due to an increase in COVID-19 testing, our lab partners are currently experiencing longer-than-normal turnaround times for testing results.

COVID-19 testing authorization form
Send this completed form with your employee when they require a COVID-19 test.
*Please be advised that negative results are based on whether or not the employee had active COVID-19 infection on the date the test was performed. Because the employee could have been exposed to COVID-19 after testing, negative results do not guarantee that the employee does not presently have or will not develop active COVID-19 infection. As such, continued monitoring for symptoms commonly associated with COVID-19 is necessary and is recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) after a negative result, as is the continued practice of preventative measures aimed at preventing the spread of infection, such as, social distancing, hand hygiene, and the use of face masks as directed by state and local public health officials. Additionally, asymptomatic COVID-19 testing should not be construed as ongoing disease management and should not take the place of regular consultation with the employees primary care provider. If the employee develops symptoms commonly associated with COVID-19, they should consult their primary care provider immediately for guidance. If the employee is experiencing a medical emergency they should immediately go to the Emergency Department.
