Fetter Health Care Network (FHCN), a Federally Qualified Health Center, in partnership with Berkeley County Municipalities and Berkeley County Government, has opened a COVID-19 Respiratory Collection Test Site in Berkeley County.
The site opened at Berkeley Recreational Complex on Monday, April 6, located at 418 East Main Street in Moncks Corner, SC. The site offers testing from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, and consists of three drive-thru lanes. FHCN has the capacity to collect 300 specimens per day.
Individuals experiencing cough, fever and shortness of breath can request a screening at FetterCovid19Screening.org or by calling 1-800-365-7410. Patients will be connected with a Fetter provider who will determine the need for testing. Tests are given by appointments only and require a special, unique code.
“Opening this test site was an easy decision because it is the right thing to do for our communities,” said Mrs. Aretha R. Jones-Powers, CEO of FHCN. “Our partners in Berkeley County have made this endeavor as smooth as possible and provided all of the needed resources. We are also thankful to the many local businesses that have agreed to provide lunch for the clinical team dedicated to this effort.”
Currently, all insurance providers in South Carolina are covering the cost of COVID-19 testing. Patient insurance information is captured in order to process the test. No co-pays or deductibles are being charged. All patients are served regardless of their ability to pay.
