III. How Does HealthLabs Testing Work?

Where is the testing done?

All lab testing is done in one of the 4,500-plus CLIA-certified labs that partner with HealthLabs, including LabCorp and Quest Diagnostics. Its vast lab network means you’re likely to find a lab location near you. After placing your order online with HealthLabs, you can walk into any lab in its network during normal business hours for testing. No appointment is necessary, and you’ll get your results in your secure online account within one to three business days.

Do you need a prescription?

Normally, you need an order from your doctor to get lab testing, but HealthLabs provides these for you, so you won’t need to wait on a prescription/referral from your primary care physician. Once you order your test(s) online, one of HealthLabs’ licensed physicians issues a lab requisition, which you can print and deliver or fax to the testing facility you wish to visit.

Does HealthLabs take insurance?

HealthLabs doesn’t accept insurance, but it does take numerous forms of payment, including health savings accounts and flex spending accounts. Some health insurance companies reimburse you for health testing, so you may want to contact your insurance carrier to see if it’ll repay you after completing your tests.

Will HealthLabs connect you with a health care provider?

Consultations with health care professionals are available if your test(s) results are positive. Certified health specialists are also available to walk you through your test(s) results and provide any clarification you need over the phone at a toll-free number or via live chat.

Are test results accurate?

All the testing labs that partner with HealthLabs are CLIA-certified, which means they meet federal regulations for clinical diagnostic testing. This ensures safety and quality within the lab and its results.
