For more accurate results, some tests need to be done fasting before having your blood drawn. For FASTING TESTS, do not eat or drink anything for a minimum of 12 hours prior to your exam.
Insurance plans vary and each policy has a specific coverage including laboratory participation. While most tests are covered by insurance, we encourage our patients to contact their insurance carrier before having the test done. Please alert the phlebotomist if your lab specimen needs to be sent to Labcorp or Quest. Otherwise, BioReference will be the lab of choice.
If you are pregnant, please be aware that certain services received throughout your pregnancy may not be covered by your health insurance plan. Different providers of service will file a claim for prescribed services (such as ultrasounds, lab work, special genetic testing, etc.) with your insurance company. However; if your insurance company fails to pay for the services your receive, you may be held financially responsible. Keep in mind that many of these tests are not medically necessary but optional.
Be familiar with your health insurance benefits and coverage since you may be held financially responsible for non-covered services.
