Finally, laboratory testing is available at a reasonable and affordable price for people with and without insurance! In the past, our lab orders go to either LabCorp or SonoraQuest. For those with insurance that covers lab testing 100%, all is well. But for those without insurance or those with partial insurance coverage for labs, the cost can be a shocking number. Sadly some patients are unable to afford the tests and as a result don’t get treated promptly and properly.
We were really introduced to a new lab, Theranos, located at select Walgreens stores across the valley. I am very pleased with the service, the convenience as well as the prices, which are posted on their website, www.theranos.com. Their pricing is the same for cash pay patients and for insurance billing. They offer extended morning and evening hours, and service on both Saturday and Sunday. Feedback from patients who have gone to Theranos is all positive.
At present Theranos is an in-network provider for BlueCross BlueShield of Arizona, United Healthcare, and Medicare.
