Is there a virtual proctoring service that can be used with any covid test?

I have many Binex Now home tests, plus many of the Quickvue brand. Is there a virtual proctoring service that could be used with either of these, to meet the U.S. entry requirement? We'll be flying out of Geneva and will be in Chamonix the day before our flight. I know I could purchase something there, or go to a pharmacy, but we have all of these tests, and I just wondered if there was a way to make use of what we have. Thanks in advance.

I actually signed up with Onpoint for a zoom call using my own home test (the one supplied by the US government) the day before departing for the USA after a Rick Steves tour in France. However, I found the sign-up process confusing and cumbersome, and my appointment was never properly acknowledged. I was supposed to receive a confirmation email with a zoom link, but that email was confusing and did not seem properly linked to the two of us who were to do the test. Meanwhile, our Rick Steves guide had arranged a quick and easy 15-minute test at a pharmacy a block from our hotel, and that ended up being inexpensive (20 euros) and easy (and everyone in our group tested negative). I tried to cancel my Onpoint session a couple of days ahead and even that process was confusing, and I have received no acknowledgement of the cancellation.

Azova's website says their video proctored Covid tests also support Quickvue home tests. You do need to make an appointment for the proctoring day/time. .

I was able to quite easily make proctoring appointments with rapidtestandtrace.com. When you make the appointment, you enter what kind of test you're planning to use. However, I saw on a different forum thread that the Rick Steves tours are providing nurses to administer the tests the last night of the tour for people who are flying back to the US the next day. For a nominal fee. So I'm considering canceling our proctoring appointments. I'm not sure if you bring your own test for this Rick Steves service or if they're provided.

You better confirm this with the RS office. I suspect you may have misinterpreted whatever it was you read.

My understanding is the guides are helping folks find where they can get tested, not providing it as an included service.
