The COVID 19 Antibody Test is now here, and the Dolls are sharing how you can order the test to know if you have been exposed to the virus. This is the first step to do your part in healing the world.
The knowledge around the COVID 19 Antibody Test is truly power. Once more and more people start testing, the CDC will get a better handle on just how fast this virus spread. It will also help shed light on why some people are A symptomatic, while others have lost their lives.
The test is now available through DHA Laboratory. You can order your test here: https://www.dhalab.com/Dolls

Covid – 19 antibody testing, is also known as serology testing. It checks for a type of antibody referred to as immunoglobulin G, IgG. After exposure to the Covid-19 virus, your body produces IgG antibodies as part of your immune response. This testing will not give you positive or negative results for the virus but if you think you have experienced Covid – 19 but did not have accessibility to testing, this test will confirm if you have been exposed. This test is not for anyone who is currently experiencing symptoms.
Our goal at Once Upon a Dollhouse is to always support small and local businesses when we can. So, here’s your chance to order testing for yourself and share this information with your loved ones while supporting small business. This test can be ordered directly through the DHA website. This Laboratory is located in Mount Prospect, IL. We trust this laboratory 100% – and you can too – knowing that it’s owned and operated by Dani’s family.
We got our test results back within 72 hours and both tested negative.
The cost: $109 – If you have health insurance you can submit your receipt for reimbursement.
Words of advice: Anyone who tells you this test should be free or only cost $10 is sort of giving you the run around… We did more research and found out: yes, there is a way to pay a $10 co-pay and bill the remainder to your insurance but the cost of the testing will be well over $109. In our opinion paying $109 upfront and submitting for reimbursement to your insurance is a more safe option, rather than not knowing how much will be billed after the $10 co-pay.
