COVID-19 Information for USF Health Patients

USF Health is currently offering Regeneron monoclonal antibody treatment

Monoclonal antibody treatment can prevent severe illness, hospitalization and death in high-risk patients who have been diagnosed with  or been exposed to COVID-19. The antibodies help the immune system recognize and respond effectively to the virus and should be administered as soon as possible after diagnosis or exposure. 

The monoclonal antibody treatment is covered by insurance and available free of charge to patients without insurance. If you are 12 years and older and are at high risk for severe illness due to COVID-19, you are eligible for this treatment.

• In clinical trials, monoclonal antibody treatment showed a 70% reduction in hospitalization and death.

• For high-risk patients who have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, monoclonal antibody treatment can give you temporary immunity to decrease your odds of catching the infection by over 80%.

To see if you are eligible for monoclonal antibody treatment, please email monoclonalAb@usf.edu.

All patients are still required to obtain COVID testing prior to their day of surgery. There are no exceptions to this policy.  All patients will continue to be scheduled for COVID testing.

If a patient has a concern about driving to the Morsani Center for Advanced Healthcare for their test due to travel distance or scheduling issues, they are permitted to obtain a test at a local facility if it meets the following criteria: 

• PCR test only 
• Test must be done 72 hours prior to DOS 
• Results must be submitted to the ASC team 24 hours prior to DOS. If there are no results by the 24 hour mark, the ASC team will be contacting the patient in order to reschedule their procedure.
