How Much Do You Pay for Bloodwork?

Bloodwork Costly For Some Even With Insurance

Right now, most of us are thinking about scheduling wellness visits with our health professionals. If you see Bonnie, you know that bloodwork is an important part of the visit.

The problem? If you have a high deductible, your out-of-pocket cost can be prohibitive. Even if insurance covers most of the bloodwork, the lab inflates the prices so much that your co-pay is even steep.

The solution? We have used a local lab for over 20 years that does our entire bloodwork panel for a VERY reasonable price.

The benefits? You do not have to go through your physician. While you do pay for the bloodwork out-of-pocket, you can use an FSA or HSA credit card. You can self-submit a claim to insurance for potential reimbursement.

Contact us for details if this is seems like an attractive option for you.
