Terms and Conditions
By agreeing to a COVID 19 PCR Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Test or to a Rapid Antigen Test with Abbotsford Medical Centre (a member of 1213498 B.C. Ltd), through your registration on our website abbotsfordmedical.ca, you hereby agree and consent to the following:
“I confirm that I have read the ‘Abbotsford Medical Centre Safety Questionnaire’ at the time of booking. I confirm that I will complete a safety questionnaire on my appointment date. I agree that if on the day of testing I answer “yes” to any of the questions, testing can not proceed.
I understand that I am consenting to undertaking Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing via nasopharyngeal collection swab, or to Rapid Antigen Testing via nasal collection swab, to detect the presence of SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 infection. I verify that all the information on the self-assessment questionnaire form is true and correct to the best of my knowledge. A negative test result suggests that I do not have an active COVID-19 infection at the time of testing, though I understand results cannot be guaranteed to be 100% accurate. The testing method that I am consenting to will not confirm immunity to COVID-19, nor will it confirm if I remain virus-free after testing. I understand there is also a small risk of false-positive results.
I understand that Abbotsford Medical Centre will analyze my specimen using a Health Canada-approved device for Rapid Antigen Testing and/or PCR/NAAT testing. I understand that while best efforts will be used to report my results in a timely fashion, turnaround and reporting times are variable and can be subject to unforeseen and uncontrollable delays.
I agree that Abbotsford Medical Centre is not responsible or liable for any travel expenses, cancellation costs, changes in flight or travel itineraries, denial of boarding, inability to work or engage in economic activity, refusal of any authority to accept the test results, or quarantine by any government or agency.
By booking an appointment, I confirm that the test performed by Abbotsford Medical Centre meets my specific travel or testing needs. I confirm that Abbotsford Medical Centre takes no responsibility in the event I have booked an inappropriate test.
I hereby provide my consent for Abbotsford Medical Centre to share my personal demographic information with any government agency, health authority or federal or provincial health department, health ministry, or public health agency ONLY in the event of a positive result. I understand and consent that Abbotsford Medical Centre will notify public health officials of any positive results and will provide them with my contact information in the event of such a result.
I consent to Abbotsford Medical Centre collecting and storing my personal information securely, including my name, address, phone number, email address, and date of birth. I agree that Abbotsford Medical Centre is authorized to transmit my personal information and test results to me, via email.
I acknowledge that all prices are correct at the time of booking. Should prices drop I will not be entitled to a refund, should I make voluntary changes to my booking I may be required to pay additional fees. I acknowledge that there are no exceptions to the cancellation policy. I acknowledge that there are no exceptions in the event of unexpected trip cancellation or a medical emergency or a change in travel rules. I acknowledge that Abbotsford Medical Centre has recommended the purchase of travel insurance to cover these events.
If I choose to cancel my COVID-19 test after booking and payment is completed, Abbotsford Medical Centre will charge a $25 administrative fee in order to complete my cancellation and refund. If I miss my appointment without canceling in advance by at least 24 hours, then I understand the full testing fee is non-refundable. If I choose to change my appointment time, Abbotsford Medical Centre will adjust my appointment time at no extra cost if given greater than 24hrs notice and there is availability. If I choose to change my appointment time and there is no availability then I will be refunded, minus a $25 administrative fee. If I choose to change my appointment time with less than 24 hours’ notice then I understand the full testing fee is non-refundable and I will need to make a new appointment. I understand and agree that once my COVID test has been completed, there are no refunds.
I agree that the Terms and Conditions shall be governed exclusively by the laws of the Province of British Columbia, Canada and that any claims arising from my COVID-19 PCR or Rapid Antigen Test shall be brought exclusively within the Province of British Columbia, Canada exclusively through arbitration. Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Abbotsford Medical Centre product or service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by Abbotsford Medical Centre will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, and such binding arbitration shall occur exclusively in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada.”
