COVID-19 Active Test

Please arrive at your scheduled time, coming from Lee Highway, turn onto Edison St, following the signs to turn left into the alleyway (just past the entrance to the pharmacy parking lot) toward the back of the pharmacy, and into your designated spot. These spots will be clearly marked.

Our address is:
5101 Lee Highway
Arlington VA 22207

1. Once you are ready in your parking spot, please text 703-522-3412 with your name and spot number.

2. Have your ID and insurance card out and ready to show when asked.  If you are a cash customer, your SSN or tax ID are required. Federal funding requires that you prove you are a legal resident if you are not commercially insured

Important Points:

  • Fasting is NOT required for this test.
  • WEAR A MASK or facial covering to protect both you and the person administering the test.
  • Please note there are NO REFUNDS for cancellations or missed appointments. If you are more than 15 minutes late, that is considered a missed appointment. To reschedule you will have to book a new appointment and pay an additional $50 to reserve a testing slot.
  • NO REFUNDS for rescheduling.
  • For our regular 2 day PCR test that costs $50, this cost is an administrative fee, and we are not able to bill it to your insurance. You will be required to bring either medical insurance or SSN to receive this test so the lab can bill your insurance directly for the lab fees.
  • For expedited next day testing (with insurance), the $125 is an administrative fee and the lab will bill your insurance for the lab fees. You will only pay the prices shown on our website. Any additional bill that you receive, might be an explanation of benefits or copies of bills that the lab had sent to your insurance. You won’t pay anything extra.
