What are the Inova Extended COVID-19 Care Clinics?

These clinics have been launched to help our patients recover safely at home, access outpatient intravenous therapies such as monoclonal antibody treatment when available, and/or receive supportive care in an ambulatory setting as an alternative to an emergency room visit or hospitalization.

The Inova Extended COVID-19 Care Clinics are accepting referrals for patients from all Inova Emergency Rooms, Inova Urgent Care Centers, Inova Primary Care Offices, as well as community practices.

What is monoclonal infusion treatment for COVID-19?

Monoclonal antibodies are laboratory-made proteins that mimic the immune system’s ability to fight off harmful antigens such as viruses. The monoclonal antibody infusions offered specifically target the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2, designed to block the virus’ attachment and entry into human cells.

Infusion treatment – also known as IV therapy – involves administering medications intravenously. This is done by injecting a needle directly into the patient’s arm. This allows for much more efficient treatment since it delivers medicine directly into the bloodstream.

Who is eligible for monoclonal antibody infusion?

Patients eligible must have experienced symptom onset within the past 10 days, have a positive COVID test, and also meet the following criteria:

Patients 12 or older who weigh at least 40 kg who have the following risk factors:

  • Older age (>=65)
  • Obesity with a BMI of >=25 for adults or BMI >= 85th percentile for children age 12-17
  • Pregnancy
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Diabetes

  • Having a medical related technological dependence, i.e. tracheostomy, gastrostomy, or positive pressure ventilation

Is the COVID-19 infusion treatment FDA approved?

An Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) is a mechanism to facilitate the availability and use of medical countermeasures, including vaccines, during public health emergencies, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic.

How effective is the COVID-19 infusion treatment? What are the side effects or potential risks?

Can pregnant patients be referred for the infusion treatments?

There have not been any studies on pregnant patients. Given the low risk associated with this medication, pregnant patients can receive the treatment if requested.

Is the COVID-19 infusion treatment covered by insurance?

The cost of any telemedicine visits or infusion fee are covered by Medicare, Medicaid, and commercial insurance. Co-pays may apply. The infusion and telemedicine visits are available to the uninsured who can apply for financial assistance.
