What To Bring With You:

Bring a photo ID, a smartphone if you have one, and an insurance card only if you have one. Insurance cards are accepted if you have one, but you are not required to display proof of health insurance in order to be tested for COVID-19. Insurance will be billed only if applicable. There is no cost to be tested at any of the above Heartland Health Testing Locations or the IEMA Testing Location (located near the Peoria Civic Center).

Please be sure to give an accurate, valid phone number when filling out your pre-test paperwork. Your results will be given to you via phone, and results will not be disclosed in a voicemail. It is important that you answer the phone and speak to the agent trying to reach you with your test results when they call.
