Free COVID-19 Testing at Curative Kiosk Now Requires Proof of Insurance
If you sign up to get your COVID-19 test at the Curative testing kiosk near UHD’s Jesse H. Jones Student Life Center, you now need proof of insurance – and a photo ID.
Proof of insurance is required to schedule an appointment online or to do on-site registration at Curative sites. Once you arrive for your test, your insurance card and a photo ID are both required to check in. The test will continue to be provided free with proof of insurance.
If you don’t have insurance and want to get tested, or if you’re seeking a free vaccine, Houston Health Department (HHD)-operated sites continue to provide free COVID-19 testing and vaccinations and don’t require insurance. HHD-operated sites are located across the city and can be found at HoustonHealth.org or by calling 832-393-4220. You can follow HHD on Facebook or Twitter and get regular updates on all things COVID-19.
Don’t forget! You can still get paid to get tested through the GatorCash incentive! Earn $5 a week in GatorCash just for getting the free test at the Curative kiosk. Details on Emergency Management’s COVID-19 website.
The kiosk remains open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. UHD students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the public must sign up for appointments through the Curative portal using this link: Public testing.
