We offer two types of lab testing:
1. Regular labs which are ordered through LabCorp/ Quest / CPL labs. You will be referred to one of their local locations for blood draw or to submit urine or stool specimens. These labs will file a claim with your insurance company. The amount covered is dependent on your specific medical insurance plan. The feedback we have gotten is that these labs are generally 100% covered.
2. Functional Labs are ordered through a variety of Speciality Labs which test for things such as food sensitivities, nutritional status, detoxification status, GI digestion and absorption, heavy metal toxicity, genetics and hormone metabolites. These labs may not covered by your insurance company. However you can use funds from a HSA to cover the costs of these tests. Also many of these labs have a Pay Assured plan where you pay a small fee upfront and the rest they bill to your insurance. We urge you to call your health insurance before making your initial appointment with Dr. Ghei and confirm your out-of-network lab coverage.
