RCCL URL on Optum Store to order BinaxNow


Recommended Posts

Great!!!! Thank you for the link!

 

Can I order two of the 3 pack tests and have others use them also?...or do I have to be the person using all 6?

 

Hopefully the expiration dates will be longer than a month.

Ordered from Optum about 2 weeks ago.  Expirations were comparable to EMed (extended to January)

I have this question also.

 

Example: If I order the two-pack, can two people use the tests, or do both tests have to be taken by the same person?

Any single test can be used by any single person.

For cost reasons, if you need 6, order the six pack - unless the expiration date is an issue.

Some folks only need 2 - don't see that option with eMed.

 

Maybe it's just me, but I would want to have a spare test in case something went wrong, for me I would want a minimum of 4 tests, so that would get me to $140.  6 for $150seems like a better deal if they have a little longer expiration dates.

I was going to order 6 because there are 6 of us going on the cruise and wanted a test for each of us.

So the two-pack and three-pack are single packaged and can be used by 2 or 3 people?

All of them are single packs (can be used by anyone), sold in various denominations.

So why do I order the tests from this store instead of going directly to eMed?  $150 for 6 tests on eMed and $200 on the Optum store.

 

So Royal and Optum can make a profit off the tests 🙄. Disgusting, IMO. Royal should be negotiating a wholesale rate and passing it along to the customers, not skimming off the top.

Two 3 packs is $200, a single 6 pack is $150 - they function the same way.

These are the same prices that Optum was offering prior to RC linking to them.  Considering these tests were out of stock at Optum last week, I’d bet that the “negotiation” involved priority and mailing and that RC is making nothing off this deal.

Unless you have some proof that RCI is somehow getting a kickback from these sales, that's unfounded.

 

Biker, who wondered how long it would be before the "bad ole profit hungry RCI " mantra would be trotted out.

I don't see why you couldn't order two packs, but as shown above might be cheaper at eMed.

Did you have to ask them to extend them or it was done when you got them?


it was already done as part of the Abbott/FDA agreement on the BinaxNow tests.  It was done by lot and not by individual test

I would be leery of getting only the exact number needed.   I opened one test package and there was no liquid vial/bottle inside.  On another occasion the proctor had some connection problems and we had to abort when she could not properly view my results.

 

In Ohio we get them for free at the library so I can afford to experiment
