From September 1, tests will not be reimbursed anymore (except for semi-vaccinated persons, children and some other groups).

Interpretation of the antigen test result, how to behave after receiving the Ag test result



The POC antigene test came out negative, but you have symptoms

You are probably suffering from another illness and should therefore contact your GP to make an appointment.

The POC antigene test came out positive, but you have no symptoms

If the patient is asymptomatic and the result of the Ag tests is positive, the subject who performed the test induces a confirmatory PCR test right on the spot. It is therefore not necessary to undergo it again. Only serious operating reasons of the test equipment may make it impossible to perform the PCR test immediately. In this case, you will be ordered for a PCR test and instructed on how to behave by then. Please stay in isolation until the PCR test result is sent. If you are positive, tell your GP.

The POC antigene test was positive

As of 1st June 2021, the subject who performed the test is obliged to indicate a confirmatory PCR test also in a case where the patient has symptoms of the disease and has a positive antigen test.

The exact instructions will always be communicated to you individually together with the test result.
