I am insured but I still regularly order myself tests without any doctor using directlabs.com, which is affiliated with LabCorps, which, like Quest, does most if its business for insured patients with doctor's prescript
ions- you order online and pay without a prescript
ion and then walk in to one of LabCorps labs in your city or area. I love this option because I don't have to beg and haggle with God, I mean my doctor, if I want a test, nor do I appreciate having to pull teeth
to get the results either, and I do know alot about
the test results' meaning from my own research, so I don't always need a doc. or ND to interpret. To give an example of the prices, LabCorps charges about
$29 for an internet ordered CBC or a simple blood cholesterol test, and $92 or something up there for a VAP Cholesterol test that actually measures (as opposed to calculating) breaks down the sub-types of LDL etc... and hundreds for some advanced tests. It sounds like this place may be cheaper still, which could be good for some tests.
