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

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.

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.

I FOUND A BETTER DEAL l at http://www.bidonhealth.com. You can save up to 90% on your blood tests, but you can also save the same on radiology tests, like mammograms, ct scans, mri, etc.
No opinion on this company, but not a good deal price wise using "buy it now". Didn't bid since their website seems to be extremely unstable. Their buy it now pricing seems to be extremely high, eg: ALT single test is $20, AST single test is $20, vitamin D is $120, "CBC/CMP/Lipid Profile" for $126. Compare this to lef.org for entire cbc/chem/lipid panel which includes ALT, AST & Lipid &...etc for $50 regular or $20 when on sale, vitamin D is $50.

$35 via lef.org, a more mature company for ALL the test below:

BidOnHealth.com has wayyy better regular prices than Life Extension's "sales", and also offers highly discounted Radiology tests (mammograms, CT scans, ultrasounds, MRI. X-ray, etc...) in AZ & CA (and expanding quickly).

So for the people who live in the not so cool area (NJ, NY, RI, MA), other than receiving the draw kit, what can they expect?

After receiving the draw kit, do I just book an appt in nearby LabCorp office and just visit? Or is there an extra step? They say there might be a drawing fee. Does anyone know how much that is usually?

I have insurance that covers my yearly blood test, but I want to test it every six months. If the fee is reasonable, I'll try this method, but if the drawing fee is high, I'd rather wait another six months for a blood test.

I'd appreciate an input from anyone in NJ or NY area.

I would goto your nearby LabCorp to ask about the fees.

Deal is alive again for the annual 2013 blood test sale for members only. This year, it's $26 which is still a great price. I cannot find a better deal.
