Before, during, or after your laboratory testing

  • Ask your health care provider to explain your laboratory tests and results to you to keep you involved in your treatment.
  • Check with your health insurance provider to see which Laboratory will be performing your testing. If your insurance provider has more than one Laboratory provider, you will be allowed to choose, understanding that copays and deductibles may apply.
  • If you have a prescription for blood testing, ask your provider if there are any special requirements, such as fasting, prior to your blood draw.
  • Ensure that the person that collects your specimens labels the sample in your presence and verifies your name and date of birth to prevent errors.
