- Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Child COVID Testing - CHOP has partnered with the Philadelphia Department of Public Health to offer families online screening to determine if a child meets COVID-19 testing criteria. If your child meets criteria for COVID-19 testing after the screening, you will be directed to schedule an appointment for testing at your choice of location across the Greater Philadelphia region. You do not need to be a current CHOP patient to schedule an appointment at a CHOP testing site. There are no copays or out-of-pocket costs associated with testing at CHOP. Uninsured families can access testing at no cost. Families can use the following resource for screening and making appointments: chop.edu/covidtesting. Testing is available only by appointment and only after screening has been completed. They are not currently able to offer testing for asymptomatic patients seeking testing pre-travel or for other screening purposes.
