This is a random savings tip that’s a bit off what I normally share, but hopfully it will help out some of you.
I needed to get my thyroid tested so I could get my meds refilled (I have hyperthyroid, which is the opposite of most people), and have to pay out-of-pocket for the tests. My doctor told me about Any Lab Test Now, which is a medical testing lab for uninsured or underinsured people.
For the TSH, T3 Free, and T4 Free, Any Lab Test Now charges $109 total. Memorial Health Systems quoted me $367 for the same three tests, and they told me that when I receive the bill I can tell them I don’t have insurance and receive a 50% discount if paid within the first 30 days. Still, that’s $184 – a full $75 more than Any Lab Test Now,and Memorial also told me I’d need to pay an additional 10% to pathology.
Note: another test my doctor ordered (the TSI) is way expensive and initially Any Lab Test Now was more expensive on that thest than Memorial, though they did say they would give me a discount since it was so pricey. My doctor agreed it was OK to skip that one since it cost so much, so thankfully I didn’t have to pay an extra $400-500 for a single test!
I went today to get my blood drawn and was super pleased with their service. I found out that you can actually do just about any lab test on your own without a doctor’s order, which I think is super cool!
They’re located 7824B N. Academy (across from Chapel Hills Mall) and their phone number is 719.277.8378. If you go, tell Alice I sent you – she was super sweet and I enjoyed having her take my blood, as much as that is possible! :)
