COVID-19 Testing For All
uMedMarket has partnered with South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control to provide top quality tests with their government qualified testing facility. The SCDHEC has qualified the testing facility and administers the standards to ensure they are of the highest quality.
The test has been approved by the CDC and FDA as a valid, accurate test. It is being widely utilized across the country.
Our collection method maintains strict social distancing throughout the whole process. From purchase, to collection to results, there is no human to human contact. At a hospital, however, a doctor or nurse has to break social distancing to collect the sample. Our sample is collected by you, while under medical observation to ensure everything is done correctly.
Results are shared by order number. Only you and uMedMarket know your order number. No one else. If you test positive, we are required by federal law to share some information with the government. We do not share your results with your friends, family, employer or anyone else (except as required by law).
Our collection method does not require a 6″ long swab to be stuck into your nose. Our swab only goes in about 1.5″, or about as far as you can insert your finger. We are also doing a spit sample where you simply spit, no swabbing at all.
At a hospital, a doctor must order a COVID-19 test. At uMedMarket, we don’t require a doctor’s order. If you want a test, you can have it. You don’t have to be showing symptoms. If you want to be tested, we will get you tested.
At a hospital, they often require symptoms in order to give you a COVID-19 test. At uMedMarket, we don’t require any symptoms. If you want a test, you can have it.

Why Is uMedMarket Testing?
At uMedMarket, we believe in bringing healthcare to as many people as possible. We do this primarily by enabling shopping for services like MRIs and CT scans and such. This brings the cost down and quality up because providers are now competing for customers. We also bring the cost down by utilizing cash payments because this drastically reduces overhead for providers and reduces overall cost.
For COVID-19, we believe that testing more is better. As countless government officials have stated, more testing is critical. We found a local lab (Premier Medical Laboratory Services) that has extra capacity for testing. They do a lot of testing for local hospitals and we thought, since they have spare capacity, we should make testing available to everyone.
