Here are three options for Michigan Medicine patients who want to be evaluated for COVID-19. COVID-19 testing at our hospitals and health centers requires a referral, which you can get through the below options.

Call the COVID-19 Hotline

The hotline is available from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., 7 days a week, for Michigan Medicine patients.

Schedule a Virtual Care Visit

Submit an E-Visit or Urgent Care Video Visit for prompt evaluation for COVID-19 using MyUofMHealth patient portal.

Contact Primary Care

Established U-M primary care patients can contact their clinic for evaluation of COVID-19.

Please note: Stay at home and away from others if you are sick. In many cases, COVID-19 can be managed without emergency care. If you are not a Michigan Medicine patient and are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, contact your primary care provider. If you do not have a primary care provider, contact the State of Michigan Coronavirus Hotline at 888-535-6136.
