CLIA Waiver Program

Primary’s CLIA waiver program provides the coverage you need to administer professional point-of-care (POC) tests on-site.

Now it’s easier than ever to conduct essential point-of-care (POC) testing at your location to keep your population safe and healthy.

Primary’s CLIA-waived testing allows trained community members to perform low-complexity testing outside of a regulated facility. Under our CLIA certification, your trained staff can offer professional POC testing in-house. 

Currently, we offer CLIA waivers in several states. Public health entities in California, where state-sponsored CLIA-waived testing ended November 11, 2023, can easily transition their CLIA coverage to Primary’s with minimal disruption to testing.

More essential testing, more efficiency

Our CLIA-waived testing program and software are designed to streamline administration of many health procedures, including:

  • Flu, RSV, COVID-19, and Strep tests
  • Sexually transmitted infection (STI) tests
  • Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) tests
  • Hemoglobin A1C tests
  • Rapid HIV tests
  • Cholesterol monitoring
  • Urine pregnancy tests

Allowing your team to conduct tests on-site without the need for complex laboratory procedures reduces turnaround time, so you can react quickly to changes in your population’s health.

Additionally, Primary’s software platform handles paperwork, reporting, and compliance management, freeing your staff for more impactful work.

Designed with community health in mind

Our CLIA-waived testing program suits any large community focused on ensuring a safer and healthier environment for people to live, learn, and work, including:

  • Schools
  • Residential care facilities
  • Community clinics
  • Employers
  • State and government

Providing essential CLIA-waived POC testing at your location(s) enhances overall health, which translates to improved academic performance, staff productivity, and community well-being.
