How accurate are my results?
All of the laboratories that process our tests are ICMR certified laboratories. All of the home sample collection testing kit we offer has been thoroughly validated against traditional testing conducted in doctor’s offices and clinics. These labs comply with all regulations regarding laboratory testing in addition to performing frequent internal quality checks and testing, as well as regular inspections and validation of the accuracy of their testing.
How secure is your data?
Customer information is only shared with the third-party lab and physicians that are a part of our testing process, except where a customer has consented to sharing the information with one of our enterprise partners.
Under no circumstance do we ever sell our customers’ data, and we use state-of-the-art, bank-grade encryption to ensure data security.
Do I need to have a prescription to order a test?
Under ICMR and state regulations, testing varies by state and requires a written or electronic request for patient testing. The exception to this regulation is those states that allow Direct Access Testing (DAT), which allows consumers to test without a physician-authorized requisition such as Maharashtra. Arogya Sewa provides you with offline paper based questionnaire and online questionnaire before booking for lab test. The questionnaire asks information about your current symptoms. This questionnaire will be assessed by the testing laboratory before conducting your test. In Maharashtra, everyone is allowed to take the test. For questions regarding this matter, please contact Arogya Sewa at firstname.lastname@example.org. We currently cover cities with COVID – 19 testing laboratories.
Do I need to use my real name on Arogya Sewa account?
What happens to my sample once processing in complete?
A number of our panels use the entire sample volume to perform the testing. If there is a portion of the sample left over after testing is completed, then it is held (usually a week to two weeks) in the event retesting is needed. The sample is then disposed of appropriately in accordance with biological specimen disposal standards (incinerated).
Do insurance companies cover this test?
Unfortunately, no. We are not contracted with any insurance companies at this time. This is an at-home health test that doesn’t require an office visit. However, Arogya Sewa tests are typically priced lower than out-of-pocket costs associated with such visits. We are also in talks with the insurance providers, and you will be updated once we collaborate.
Refund, Cancellation and Replacement Policy:
The following policy applies for purchases made through www.arogyasewa.in. If you purchased your COVID-19 test kit at Amazon or another authorized retailer, please speak with a representative from the original place of purchase. Arogya Sewa must adhere to their policies and procedures. Kits purchased through any unauthorized reseller are not eligible for any refund, cancellation or replacement. In order to be eligible for a refund, cancellation or replacement, customers must provide a proof of purchase.
Why do I need to pay separately to the laboratories?
Arogya Sewa’s aim is to lower the congestion and cross contamination in hospital and other public places. We want people with symptoms to sit at their homes and take the test. Hospitals and Laboratories are getting congested further causing cross contamination while testing several patients. So even if you do not have virus, visiting testing places can infect you. So we want people to take the test only when symptoms occur. So it will be wise to pay only when the testing is required.
