Testing and other Laboratory Services
Our providers rely on multiple laboratories for the best science has to offer for insight into human health. We cannot guarantee how your insurance company will process claims for testing. Your insurance determines what you pay out-of-pocket based on what the lab bills. We have limited resources with which to predict what will or won’t be covered by your particular plan. LabCorp is our primary lab for routine blood tests and bills most insurance companies. Specimens collected in our clinic may incur fees for preparation, processing, and/or shipping, which are in addition to what the laboratory processing your specimen(s) will charge! If you have questions about costs of testing it is best to contact laboratory directly. If they need more information, you may request they reach out to our clinic on your behalf.
