Safeway Pharmacies Now Offer At-Home COVID-19 Test Kits

Safeway pharmacies in Maryland, Virginia, D.C., and Delaware are now offering at-home COVID-19 saliva test kits. The saliva tests offered at Safeway (in partnership with Phosphorus Diagnostics) typically offer results in 72 hours or less from the time the lab receives the test.

Here’s how it works:

  • Visit scheduletest.com to complete a short medical questionnaire and request your test. A Safeway pharmacist will authenticate the information, review and order your test.
  • You will then be contacted for payment and receive notification that your saliva test kit is ready for pick-up or has delivered/shipped to your address. Patients showing symptoms should not pick up their own test; they must send a representative or choose delivery.
  • Complete the sample collection and send it to the lab via the kit’s prepaid next-day shipping envelope.
  • Receive your results by email or text.
  • After the patient learns the results, a Safeway pharmacist will be available for questions regarding follow-up care.

In addition, the pharmacy cannot bill insurance directly for the test at this time; all payment is out of pocket. Patients may be able to submit their receipt to insurance for reimbursement.

The saliva test kit has received Emergency Use Authorization by the FDA for the detection of COVID-19.  Albertsons Cos. expects to have rolled out the offering to all the market areas it serves in October.

For additional information, contact any local Safeway pharmacy.
