The HealthQuest Health Center by Marathon, in cooperation with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and the State Employee Health Plan, is now offering both Rapid and PCR COVID-19 testing in Topeka.

Testing is available at no cost to ALL state employees, whether they are covered by the State Employee Health Plan or not. 

All employees of organizations that are currently part of the State Employee Health Plan Non State employer group are also eligible, whether they are covered by the health plan or not.

In addition, testing is now available at no cost to spouses and dependent children over age 10 that are covered by the State Employee Health Plan.

Employees and covered family members do not have to live or work in Topeka to schedule a test at the Topeka testing location.

The HealthQuest Health Center has both Rapid COVID-19 tests and PCR COVID-19 tests available. For more information about COVID-19 tests, visit the CDC’s website at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/testing.html

Testing will be done at a drive-thru testing location on an appointment basis with appointments scheduled Monday-Friday. Employees and dependents must have an appointment to be tested.
