Klein’s Pharmacy Now Offering COVID-19 Testing
Aug 19, 2020
We’re now offering drive-up nasal and throat swab testing for COVID-19. To analyze the tests, we’re partnering with Pathlabs, a laboratory testing service in Toledo, Ohio. Specimens collected at the pharmacy will be sent to Pathlabs for analysis. Patients can expect results in three to four business days.
The tests are provided via curbside and the pharmacy is ensuring proper health and safety protocols by administering the test in full PPE, including a gown, mask, double gloves, and a face shield. Upon arrival, patients should remain in their car and call the pharmacy at (330) 929-9183 or text at (330) 778-4426 to initiate the testing process. Patients are required to wear a face mask throughout the process until our staff is ready to conduct the swab.
Currently, we have the ability to bill testing collection for Ohio Medicaid and the managed care organizations associated with Ohio Medicaid (CareSource, Buckeye, Molina, and Paramount). For patients with other insurance carriers, Pathlabs is able to bill their insurance for the test processing, however these patients will need to pay our pharmacy for the nasal or throat swab. For patients without Medicaid, the cost for the test is $25.00. An insurance card must be presented at the time of the test.
If you are seeking a test, we encourage you to set up an appointment by booking an appointment online here.
Our mission has always been to provide exceptional healthcare services to our community. We’re pleased to offer COVID-19 testing services and will continue to seek new, innovative ways to serve our friends, family, and community.
