Frequently Asked Questions:

What should an individual do if their telehealth session is interrupted before completion?
If a telehealth session is interrupted, the individual should immediately return to and select the option to begin a test and explain to a proctor that the prior session was interrupted. If the proctor determines that the session is unable to proceed, contact eMed support at (844)-943-0753 for assistance.

How are results reported?
eMed is responsible for reporting results. For the individual being tested, results are returned through the NAVICA app, and the NAVICA pass can be used to demonstrate a test result to an employer, school, or other party. For public health reporting, eMed sends results through the electronic lab reporting system.

Can we skip the telehealth portion of the test and just have the distribution site also perform the test?
No, the home test’s Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA specifically states, “The BinaxNOW COVID-19 Ag Card Home Test is to be performed only with the supervision of a telehealth proctor.” Bypassing the telehealth portion of the test would also mean there would not be a prescription for the test to be administered, as the prescription specifically includes this aspect of the test. However, there are more appropriate, rapid antigen tests that can be administered at a distribution site that has a CLIA certification or waiver, can provide an order for the test, trained medical staff to administer and a mechanism for reporting the results of the test to the Ohio Department of Health. If appropriate, please contact the state testing team at to discuss these alternative options.
