Available seven days a week and includes a telehealth consultation
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ/PRESS RELEASE) – Wild Health, in partnership with Wild Labs, announced Wednesday that it is expanding accessibility to COVID-19 testing in the comfort and convenience of their patients’ homes.
According to Wild Health, patients can now book appointments online and by phone. Once an appointment has been made, a Wild Health mobile collection specialist will be assigned and arrive at the selected date and time to administer a private and confidential COVID-19 test. Specialists will then stay in contact with patients and provide ETA, updates and notification of arrival.
A telehealth visit with an approved provider is now included in Wild Health testing services. Patients will receive a 3-5 minute virtual visit to discuss symptoms, possible exposure, and answer any questions they may have.
According to Wild Health, services are currently offered in the greater Lexington and Louisville areas as well as northern Kentucky. Patients using their health insurance coverage will have no out-of-pocket costs for services provided. As a courtesy to Wild Health staff, patients are asked to wear a mask throughout their visit. If patients do not have a personal mask, a mask will be provided to them.
“Wild Health is expanding its ability to increase access to COVID-19 testing by meeting our patients where they live,” said Nicole Merz, director of clinical operations and training. “As an organization, we are committed to removing barriers to testing to ensure that anyone who wants to be tested has that opportunity.”

Throughout 2020, they’ve moved to testing with more than 200,000 people, at more than 70 sites in 18 states. At its peak in December 2021, their team tested more than 4,000 people at one site and 16,000 people in a single day in Kentcuky.
“Wild Health is here for our community and will continue to meet the needs of our patients in our clinics and in their homes,” added Merz. “These are our families, friends and neighbors, and we believe strongly in keeping them healthy and safe.”
