It is estimated that 70% of disease diagnosis and treatment is predicated on lab testing. The demand for lab testing is continuing to grow and providing consumers with reliable and convenient access to these services is essential for effectively managing population health. Value Drug has developed an alternative to traditional lab service centers that provides patients with convenient options for obtaining low-cost lab vouchers and phlebotomy services inside pharmacies.
Value Drug has partnered with Health Network Laboratories (HNL) to provide its Pharmacy Laboratory Service (PharmaLabS) program at select independent pharmacies. As part of this program, PharmaLabS operates and staffs an HNL-branded draw site, providing a convenient way for patients to get their blood work completed within the pharmacy footprint.
Offering blood testing complements other services, such as immunizations, and patients can be tested without an appointment and with little wait. A professionally-trained HNL phlebotomist makes the process quick, easy and pain-free, collects the specimens at no charge to the pharmacy, and sends them to an HNL testing facility for analysis. All major insurances are accepted and results are made available to both patients and physicians on HNL’s secure health portal.
Ulta Lab Tests offers patients direct access to lab testing at an affordable price without the need to obtain a prescription from a local physician*. With discounts of up to 80% off the patient self-pay price, pharmacies can generate incremental income while helping to lower patients’ healthcare costs, especially those with high deductibles or no insurance. Ulta Lab Tests is a national voucher program that is accepted at all Quest Patient Service Centers.
Ulta Lab Tests provides a comprehensive online platform that allows pharmacies to submit and monitor the status of lab tests, and provides patients with access to their results through a secure patient portal. Through this portal, patients can easily retrieve and track their results for each biomarker using their personalized, secure dashboard accessible online and via a mobile app.
