Will my lab work be covered by my insurance?
We cannot guarantee insurance coverage. We do however submit all routine testing through Quest Diagnostics or Laboratory Corp. of America depending on who your insurance prefers. We also order tests that require specific laboratories that may or may not contract with your insurance company. These require specific laboratories that may or may NOT contract with your insurance company. Once these samples are received by the specific labs you will receive a receipt to submit to your insurance.
AM I REQUIRED TO HAVE MY BLOOD DRAWN AT YOUR OFFICE?
We draw blood at our office as a courtesy to our patients, but it is not required that you have it done here. However, If you have it done at another lab or by another Doctor you must make sure the results are sent to us.
WILL YOU CALL ME WHEN MY LABS COME IN?
Laboratory results are complicated and comprehensive and require the doctor to review them with you. This will be done at your next appointment.
HOW DO I GET MY LAB RESULTS?
Lab results are discussed with you at your followup appointment. This is the best time to receive results as the Doctor is there to answer any questions you may have. If you require copies of your lab results you would request this through our medical records department. For verbal results you would request a call from the nursing department as the lab staff is NOT allowed to give out results.
CAN I HAVE MY PRIMARY DOCTOR ORDER THE LABS?
If you have your primary doctor rewrite the lab scripts, he/she then becomes the ordering physician. It is your responsibility to make sure we receive copies of those labs. Laboratories, whether hospital or private, will only release lab results to the ordering physician. Please do not call to see if your labs are back. You can call your primary MD, have them send you a copy of the labs and then bring them with you to your appointment.
