Deal Details

Last Edited by green_key September 27, 2012 at 04:43 PM
Great price for those who are self insured or under insured or no insurance. Maybe alternative for those with high co-pay health insurance. A friend uses this service for result preview before life insurance's official blood test since it can be done anonymously. Blood is drawn and analyzed at LabCorp, a USA based professional laboratory, publically traded company in New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
Since my co-pay is higher than $20, I use this promo in CA. Wait time for blood drawn depends on location, appointment can be made online at labcorp. Results in 1-2 days online, or they can snail mail. I do not need to provide any ID, no driver license, no ssn. My doctor prefer fresh results, usually within 30 days


To buy: http://www.lef.org/Vitamins-Suppl...-Test.html < << Item nmber LC381822.
For people NOT IN (NY, NJ, RI or MA), requisition form from lef.org email is good for 6 months after order, bring form to labcorp when ready for blood test

NOTE especially to people in Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey or Rhode Island
Q) Who orders the blood tests for me?
A) Life Extension National Diagnostics, Inc., contracts with physicians who will order your tests but will not diagnose or treat you.

Q) Where do I go to get my blood drawn?
A) Laboratory Corporation of America performs all of our blood draws at no extra charge to you. Simply click Find a Lab Near You to locate the LabCorp Patient Service Center near you. (However, if you live in Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey or Rhode Island, you will receive a blood draw kit per state law ... and additional draw fees may apply.)

Q) What are the blood test requisition options?
A) Your blood test requisition options are LabCorp requisition form and blood lab kit. If you choose "LabCorp Requisition Form", you will receive a form to present to a Patient Service Center in your area. The requisition you receive will have all the ordering information necessary for you to have your blood drawn. Please note that this option is not allowed in the states of NY, NJ, RI or MA.

Alternatively, if you choose "Blood Lab Kit", you will receive a kit containing all the necessary blood collection tubes, instructions and pre-paid shipping labels. It will be necessary for you to find a local doctors office, hospital, or local clinic to draw and process your blood. A local draw fee may be incurred.

LabCorp is a standard company used by many insurance companies. I trust the results from there. Perfect package for a "general" eval.
Those with pre existing diseases like diabetes may need more tests like A1c etc. Also note that lipid profile needs to be evaluated based on other coexisting conditions. Interpretation is key.
Good find OP

The clinic I work at uses 2 companies: quest diagnostics and labcorp. Although I have a preference to quest, labcorp is very reliable. Turn around time for results ( for blood) is typically 1-2 business days when we send it out.

Do I need to be seen by my physician or can I go directly to labcorp to have my blood drawn? Also, is scheduling ahead of time required?

Man I wish I didn't have insurance right now so I could get in on this deal Frown

They are. Labcorp is huge. Even if you have insurance and get your blood tested, it might go to Labcorp anyways. It's just that your doctor pockets the hundreds of dollars in difference.

Contrary to what many people think. You don't need a doctor to get lab tests. That little script they write you isn't like a prescription. You can get any test you want yourself. There are many places where you can order tests online. They are basically sellers of Labcorp services. You pay online and then you go to Labcorp to get your blood drawn and tested. It's really really cheap compared to how much a doctor would charge you for the same.

Look above this post or below yours. Oh yeah, make sure you shop around. The different online vendors have different prices even though you end up getting the same test at Labcorp.

Check out the local yelp reviews for the Labcorp offices around you. Around me, some have horrible reviews yet others have great ones. Just like any other business. Some Walmarts have bad reviews and others good.

Of course you can, why wouldn't you be able to? Just because you have insurance, doesn't mean you have to use it.

Simply mail it to you. You want an explanation, that's what your doctor is for. Still worth it. Even with insurance, this same series of tests would cost me far more than getting the test on my own. Instead of seeing a doctor, having them order the test and then going back to the doctor. Get the test before you see the doctor the first time. Saves you a visit and a copay. Good for that yearly physical.
