If you’re nervous about coming into the market (obviously don’t come in if you’re feeling ill or have known exposure to the coronavirus), please call to order a prescription. Ask the team member about alternatives for picking up your prescription. We can bring it to the sidewalk or send it through the mail. Thank you!
On average, the pharmacists and staff at Kitsap Pharmacy fill more than 400 prescriptions every day – each one comes with the kind of personal attention you expect from Central Market.
Prescription refills are taken on the phone (360-779-5335) in person and online. The staff is happy to take special orders for both over-the-counter and prescription medicines.
Customers are welcome to dispose of unwanted or expired medication in the pharmacy’s free receptacle between the request and pickup windows during pharmacy hours. This state program, called MED-Project, is administered through the Kitsap County Health Department. A list of what is accepted is posted on the receptacle.
The pharmacy opened in 1995 when the store opened and since that day, our pharmacists have been committed to the value of trust, and encourage people to ask whatever questions occur to them about their medications.
Kitsap Pharmacy accepts virtually all insurance policies – from Aetna to WellCare – as well as most Medicare Part D plans. Manufacturer and other co-pay discount cards are applied whenever possible and 90-day prescriptions are filled when allowable.
The pharmacy is closed only on major holidays – Dec. 25, Jan. 1, July 4, Thanksgiving, Labor Day and Memorial Day.
We also offer lipid profile blood tests here at the pharmacy. A single droplet from a finger stick is all it takes for a report that lets you know your levels of fats in your blood – total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol (the so-called “good” cholesterol) and triglycerides. It calculates for LDL and non-HDL cholesterol (the “bad” cholesterol). The report comes with a pamphlet explaining each measurement. The testing is focused on helping people manage cholesterol levels and diabetes.
