Hy-Vee will be getting COVID-19 test results back to patients faster as they will begin offering rapid antigen testing at select stores. 

Hy-Vee announced on Wednesday that they will offer rapid antigen COVID-19 testing at more than 40 Hy-Vee pharmacy locations throughout the Midwest.

This testing will be done via an outdoor, drive-thru testing process at 47 Hy-Vee pharmacies. The first 18 locations will begin testing today, Thursday, December 10. The remaining 29 locations will begin testing over the next two weeks.

Patients will receive same day test results in as little as 1-2 hours after completing the test.

Unlike the free COVID-19 tests Hy-Vee offers which takes a few days to get results, the rapid antigen tests will require payment and cost for the test will vary by location. At this time, Hy-Vee is only accepting testing payment by credit or debit card at the testing site.

Patients wanting a rapid antigen tests must register ahead of time through www.hy-vee.com/covidtesting to schedule a testing time and location and to receive a test voucher number to bring to their appointment. During registration, patients will be able to view the testing cost for their location.

Earlier this month, the CDC issued clarifying guidance for rapid antigen testing. Based on the latest guidance, only the following individuals will be eligible for rapid antigen testing:

  • Individuals who are symptomatic
  • Individuals who are asymptomatic with a known or reported exposure in the last 14 days

Any individual who is asymptomatic and has not had a known exposure in the last 14 days will not be eligible for testing through Hy-Vee at this time.

Hy-Vee pharmacies offering rapid antigen testing will offer testing windows between 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. Children 6 years or older can be tested with the rapid antigen test when registered and accompanied by a parent or guardian. All patients are required to wear a mask during the testing process.

The rapid antigen testing is in addition to Hy-Vee’s current free COVID-19 lab testing that it offers outside more than 180 pharmacy locations. Results for the lab testing associated with this test are usually available in 3-5 business days.
