Acceptable forms of payment include credit/debit cards and cash.  Pratt Regional Medical Center does not accept personal checks for LabDIRECT testing.

When Will I Get My Test Results?

LabDIRECT testing results are generally available within 24 hours after specimen collection through the Pratt Regional Medical Center patient portal.  If you requested that we mail your results, you should receive them in the mail within 3 to 5 days.

Who Reviews LabDIRECT Testing Results?

Pratt Regional Medical Center laboratory will perform your LabDIRECT testing and provide you with your results; however, LabDIRECT results are not interpreted by a physician, laboratory staff, or any other healthcare provider. Pratt Regional Medical Center does not review or interpret your LabDIRECT results. All consumers requesting testing through LabDIRECT are urged to seek, without delay, the expertise of a healthcare professional skilled in the interpretation of diagnostic tests and treatment of medical conditions.

Will My Doctor Get A Copy Of My Results?

No.  Federal and State regulations which govern consumer-initiated laboratory testing prohibit sending results to your healthcare provider.  You are urged to seek, without delay, the expertise of a healthcare professional skilled in the interpretation of diagnostic tests and treatment of medical conditions.  You can send your results to your healthcare provider directly through the Pratt Regional Medical Center patient portal.  If you requested a copy of your results be sent through the mail, you can share a copy of the results.

Why Are The Prices So Low?

LabDIRECT does not deal with private insurance companies or government insurance plans (i.e., Medicare or Medicaid).  By eliminating the “middle man” (insurance), and the costs of billing and rebilling insurance companies, we can pass the savings on to you, the consumer.

Will You Bill My Insurance?

No.  Insurance plans generally do not pay for LabDIRECT (direct-access) testing as they are not ordered by a healthcare provider.

What If I Have Insurance?  Will This Be More Affordable?

LabDIRECT testing is best suited for consumers who have no insurance or high-deductible insurance plans.  Also, since we do not bill your insurance, these services will not count towards your annual deductible.  Depending on many factors, it may be more affordable to have testing ordered through your healthcare provider.  Since insurance plans are different for each consumer and insurance carrier, you may wish to check with your insurance carrier to determine if LabDIRECT services are right for you.
