Williamson County and Family Emergency Room Announce Improved Service for Offer COVID-19 Testing

Williamson County and Family Emergency Room announced an improved contract to provide better COVID-19 testing services.  Testing is available for all.  The charges for COVID-19 tests are currently covered by most insurance companies, and Family Emergency Room will bill the patient's insurance company at no cost to the patient.  Tests for any Williamson County resident without insurance will be paid for by the county.  The renewed partnership is a continuation of hard work between the two entities to make testing more accessible.  For more information on a PCR (nasal swab test) and the Antibody Test, or to schedule a test appointment, please go to the following link: https://familyhospitalsystems.com/covid-19/
