VitalCheck—Doctors in Your Office

Benefits-eligible faculty and staff members and their eligible dependents have access to VitalCheck—Doctors in Your Office, a resource available to conduct screening and, if appropriate, facilitate testing for COVID-19. The cost is covered 100% by their health insurance. Employees need not be enrolled in a Princeton medical plan to utilize this service.

Not everyone needs to be tested for COVID-19 as described by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Most people have a mild illness and are able to recover at home.

If individuals think they may have COVID-19 and would like to discuss their symptoms or potential exposures with a doctor, book an appointment through the VitalCheck—Doctors in Your Office website. The doctor will screen them, advise which symptoms to be on alert for, and offer next steps to avoid getting and passing on the virus.

If the individual meets specific criteria, VitalCheck—Doctors in Your Office will send them a coronavirus lab kit. This is not a home test kit; it is a lab test, the same test that is conducted at state public drive-through stations. A physician will call the individual to guide and oversee the collection of the specimen and the process for delivery of the specimen to the lab. Current turnaround time for results may vary based on demand.

Anyone with questions should call VitalCheck—Doctors in Your Office at (646) 450-7751.
