Until now, individuals experiencing SARS COV-2 (Covid-19) had no way to alleviate their symptoms. At Xpress Urgent Care, we treat Covid-19 with a monoclonal antibody production treatment (Regen-CoV) to help reduce patients’ symptoms. Monoclonal antibody treatment is covered by most insurance plans and is also available for the uninsured.
Monoclonal antibodies are lab-created proteins that mimic the ones humans produce to fight viruses and diseases. The antibodies defend the body by blocking Covid-19 viruses from attaching to and entering human cells. The treatment, developed by Regeneron, is shown to reduce the risk of hospitalization or death in 70 percent of patients.
Regeneron (Regen-CoV) Post Exposure Prophylaxis
At the end of July 2021, Regeneron found that their monoclonal antibody therapy (Regen-CoV) reduced symptomatic infections with an 81% success rate.
The FDA has now updated the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to include patients at high risk of developing severe Covid-19 symptoms who are not fully vaccinated or have not had a substantial response to the vaccine. The expansion of authorization also includes patients at high risk of exposure to an infected individual.
Because of the recent update in Regen-CoV authorization, we can distribute the treatment to more patients that need it in the Orange County area. Book an appointment with one of our healthcare providers today to see if a Regen-CoV treatment plan is right for you.
How Much Does Regeneron Treatment Cost? Does Kaiser Insurance Cover It?
At this time theirs is no cost to receive the Monoclonal Antibody Therapy. We accept all insurance plans for this treatment as long as your insurance is active. Including Kaiser Insurance. We will bill your insurance so you may receive the treatment as soon as possible.
If you truly don’t have insurance you can still get the treatment at no cost through the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA). All you need to do is book an appointment and complete the registration process. This treatment is available every day at all of our clinics from 8am to 8pm. Please share with family and friends as it could have safe lives.
