Indiana Sponsored Test Site Moves To Portage From Valparaiso

Effective on Monday, August 3rd, the Indiana State Department of Health Optum Testing site moved to 3564 Scottsdale Street In Portage. (The former home of North Shore Health Clinic). The last day of testing at the National Guard Armory in Valparaiso was Friday, July 31st.

 OptumServe Health Services has provided 20 COVID-19 sites across the state with large-scale testing for Hoosiers since April 28th.  20 testing sites will open in Indiana National Guard armories including the National Guard Armory in Valparaiso, Indiana.

“Launching this partnership with Optum further expands Indiana’s COVID-19 testing capacity,” said Gov. Holcomb. “These free tests will be available in locations across the state, ensuring even more Hoosiers who have symptoms or an affected family member can get tested for coronavirus.”

Testing is appointment only. To sign up for an appointment, Hoosiers will register through the Optum portal that was launched and includes a self-report symptoms using an online screening tool.

Results are provided to the patient via a phone call if the test is positive or via an email or text if the test is negative.

Hoosiers will not be charged for testing and insurance is not required. If you have private health insurance, please bring that information with you.

“We have been working diligently to increase access to testing throughout Indiana with drive-thru clinics and strike teams,” said Dr. Box. “By joining forces with Optum, we will ensure that testing for COVID-19 is available to Hoosiers who need it most.”
