LAB TESTING

Need in depth, affordable labs?

We know how expensive testing can be, particularly with specialized tests.  By partnering with specialty labs, we are able to offer a lot of tests at a much lower, discounted out of pocket cost when your insurance won't cover the tests.

Who would benefit?

  • Anyone who wants less expensive, advanced functional medicine testing usually not covered by insurance
     

  • Those with limited insurance coverage for labs
     

  • Medicare or Medicaid patients with complex medical conditions who can't afford advanced labs and functional medicine doctors
     

  • People with digestive issues who have been to conventional practitioners without answers
     

  • Those working with functional medicine practitioners but not getting insurance coverage
     

*You can always send a recepit for services to insurances for reimbursement  or use flex spending accounts

 

How does it work?

STEP 1      Click on your chosen test (most are available anywhere in the US and                          some internationally)

STEP 2     Order test through the link and fill out your information

STEP 3     Pay through the DHA website. (If you are working through a practitioner,                      you will need to separately send them the results once you receive them)

STEP 4     Once the order is processed, paperwork will be emailed to you within 2-3                    business days. Blood draw paperwork includes 3 documents: a local lab                      list, preparation instructions (always fasting in the AM for morning), and a                    requisition form to take to the lab. 

                  Blood draw does not include any additional expenses. For functional                            tests, kits will be maile to you directly within no longer than 1 week.                              These are usually urine, stool or saliva samples easily collected at home                     and then mailed out. For bloodwork, you will be given a list of local lab                        options to get a blood draw.

STEP 5     Once sent, the turnaround time is anywhere between 2-5 weeks                                    depending on the type of test you ordered. Basic blood work can be as                      fast as 1 week, whereas functional tests can take more time.
