Curative Testing Schedule
(Available to TAMIU and public community)

Important Update on Curative
Testing @ TAMIU: Insurance Required

Please be advised that effective March 18, 2022, all individuals testing at Curative sites, including TAMIU, will need to present proof of insurance. ID and proof of insurance information are now required for testing, including scheduling an appointment online or on-site registration.  Important:  the test will continue to be provided at no out-of-pocket cost with proof of insurance.

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has announced that because of the current lack of federal appropriations for COVID-19 services, it is no longer able to accept claims for COVID-19 testing of uninsured individuals, and so Curative is no longer able for those without insurance.

Testing options for those without insurance in Laredo include the City of Laredo Health Department, 2600 Cedar Street. These tests are available from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday - Friday on a walk-up basis.  Additional details are available at 956.795.4900.

Rapid, antigen testing for TAMIU students, employees and third-party partners remains available on-campus, at no cost. 

If federal or state funding is provided to ensure that those without insurance have access to no out-of-pocket testing, this site will be updated.
