Welcome to Bluewater Diagnostic Laboratory

Excellence in Laboratory Services

Bluewater is now offering high throughput COVID-19 testing.

Covid-19 Testing Information and Options

Bluewater has been recognized by the state of Kentucky for expanding the state’s COVID-19 testing capacity to include employers, hospitals, nursing homes, government agencies and individuals in need of a test.  Bluewater has the capacity to test up to 1,500 samples per day with results available within 24-48 business hours of receipt.  There are three ways which specimens are collected: on-site at an employer’s workplace, at Bluewater’s mobile collection sites, or through one of our partnered medical care providers.

Individual Testing

Telehealth: If you’d like a telehealth visit with a healthcare provider prior to your collection, Bluewater offers a telehealth option. This provider will manage your COVID-related care. Click here to schedule a telehealth appointment.

Mobile Collection Sites: For individuals wishing to be tested without a telehealth visit, choose a convenient location from the mobile collection sites listed below, and click on the header to access the scheduling link.

Specimen Collection: Go to the mobile collection site on the date and time assigned with ID and insurance information (if applicable).

Results Reporting: Results are available within 24-48 business hours of specimen receipt at the laboratory (48-72 business hours from collection). Login credentials to the patient portal at https://sphere.health/portal/ will be emailed automatically after specimen collection.

Positive Results: In the event of a positive test result, you will receive a call with instructions for follow-up care.

Cost: Testing is at no cost to those wishing to be tested (no deductibles, copayments, or coinsurance). All claims are submitted to the patient’s insurance provider or to federal programs for the uninsured according to Section 4201 of the CARES Act.
