There could also be a substantial financial impact for consumers who seek treatment for the coronavirus as well. In Seattle, the first major metro area to get hit hard by the coronavirus, out-of-pocket costs for an urgent care visits can cost as much as $300, and the cost of the COVID-19 diagnostic test costs at least $200.
