Testing and Treatment

MAHEC's Acute Care Clinic offers testing by appointment only, Monday-Friday 8am-4pm and Saturday 8am-noon. You do not need a physician referral and you do not need to be symptomatic to receive a test. Most insurance companies cover the cost and MAHEC has options to help uninsured patients cover the cost. To make an appointment, please call (828) 257-4730 and press option #1.

Monoclonal Antibody Treatment: MAHEC is providing the COVID-19 monoclonal antibody treatment authorized for use with the delta variant. This treatment may lessen the severity of illness in high risk, mild to moderately ill people infected with COVID-19 and reduce hospitalizations. Currently a positive COVID-19 test and provider referral is required. Learn more about monoclonal antibody treatment here.

Post-Acute COVID-19 Care Clinic: Post-Acute COVID is an emerging syndrome that involves COVID symptoms that last for more than two weeks after a diagnosis and can persist for 8 weeks or longer. Symptoms may include severe fatigue and weakness, shortness of breath, reoccurring fevers, fast-beating or pounding heart, exercise intolerance, persistent cough, difficulty thinking or concentrating. Our PACC clinic provides individualized treatments to manage and alleviate ongoing symptoms. We also coordinate external referrals, when needed, to support optimal recovery. Click here to learn more.
