HealthLabs.com has been offering customers affordable lab testing online since 2015. The online lab testing provider works with thousands of trusted CLIA-certified lab locations across the United States, making laboratory testing a convenient option for those who don't have insurance, who have high deductibles, want confidentiality, and whose doctors won't prescribe them the lab testing they want to have done.
Anyone 18 years of age or older who wants a urine or blood sample lab test can go online to purchase the lab. HealthLabs.com doesn’t add any tax or shipping to the price, so the price customers see online is what they will pay. Then customers can go to one of the labs that partners with HealthLabs.com and have their test performed with complete confidentiality. Results then appear on the customer’s online account.
According to HealthLabs.com, a doctor's or physician's order is required for testing. After purchasing a test through the website, HealthLabs.com will have one of its doctors issue a lab requisition form. Patients can then print out the form and take it to one of the lab facilities near them. If the patient doesn't have a printer, they can fax the form to the lab.
Since a doctor or physician has to order lab tests, going with HealthLabs.com can be a great route for those who want a test done but their doctor won’t order it for them or for people who want to keep their results private.
Patients can expect to receive their results in just a few days after the tests are administered. Customers will be notified via email that their results are available for viewing on their HealthLabs.com profile. Test results are kept private and aren’t shared with the customer’s doctor or insurance provider. If they so choose, customers can share their results with these parties.
There are no extra fees or extra charges for visiting the testing center or getting results. Since HealthLabs.com doesn’t ship any tests, patients aren’t charged any extra fees. HealthLabs.com has negotiated a low price with its partner labs, so the price online is the price customers pay.
Patients can just walk into any of HealthLabs.com's centers; appointments are not necessary. Simply bring the lab requisition form and visit any lab during the lab’s regular operating hours. All lab tests take approximately 10 minutes or less.
Some lab tests will require preparation before the test, such as fasting for a certain period of time. Customers will be given instructions on these procedures when they request the lab.
Patients who find a lower price (on the same test they ordered) from a competing company will receive the test they ordered at that lower price, plus a 10 percent discount.
As long as patients make sure to find the exact test on a different site, this is a great guarantee. Since labs ordered by a primary care physician can cost hundreds of dollars, HealthLabs.com tests are already a great price and customers can be assured that they’ll get the best price possible if they do some research.
HealthLabs.com offers a wide variety of tests that require a standard blood draw or urine sample. These tests include STD testing, thyroid tests, diabetes tests, allergy tests, general health and wellness tests, and more.
HealthLabs.com does not accept insurance. This means that the ordered tests and test results are not placed on a patient's medical records. However, if a patient wants they can share the results with their doctor.
Although patients can't use insurance to pay for the tests, HealthLabs.com does accept other payment options. Patients can use credit or debit cards, HSAs, FSAs, prepaid gift cards, cashiers checks, PayPal, and more.
Patients can cancel their order any time before they visit the testing center. A refund will be issued minus a cancellation fee of 20 percent of the cost of the test.
