Rockwall County now has a monoclonal antibody treatment center located on Rockwall County property between the Library and Courthouse near 1111 E Yellow Jacket Ln.
This treatment center opened Monday, September 6th, and is operated by MDLabs, the Rockwall County partner that administered vaccines out of Wilkerson Stadium. This treatment center will aid in keeping people with COVID-19 out of local hospitals. Treatment works best if a COVID-positive person receives the monoclonal antibody treatment within the first five days of symptom onset. However, individuals are eligible to receive treatment up to 10 days after symptom onset. Patients must be observed for one hour after treatment to ensure no adverse effects are experienced.
It is preferred that patients have a referral from a doctor and schedule an appointment. However, there is limited capability to assess and provide a patient referral on-site if necessary. There is limited capacity for walkups. However, walkup availability is not guaranteed. Walkups without a referral will take longer to process than someone with an appointment and doctor’s referral. MDLabs will collect insurance information and file an administration claim; however, a co-pay/payment will not be collected. Insurance companies are paying administration fees for the antibody treatments just as they do with vaccines. Filing for the administration fee is how MDLabs can support Rockwall County, and no one will be denied treatment based on insurance coverage.
