My First-time Swab Antigen

Since 1 and half year of covid, we as a family finally had our first time been tested negative. The experience is a bit scary hoping that it's not positive, what would've we do the next few weeks. After a bit of research at first we wanted to use take Swab PCR, my and my wife then the kids will take swab antigen though in the end we all pick swab antigen.

It's kind of sad, we don't get reimbursed for this, I've checked with the insurance you need to be sick to get reimbursed and if you want to only check without doctors reference then it won't get reimbursed.

This is the email from our insurance (translated) took out the name of the insurance.
