JCH&L offers reduced-price blood profiles – and a number of other patient-requested blood tests – on alternating Wednesdays from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Fridays from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m.
These patient-requested blood tests are being offered for those who wish to have more frequent testing than their health insurance plan will cover, want to access and manage health status on a regular basis, or are uninsured or have a high deductible and want to take advantage of lower out-of-pocket expenses. These are made available at patient request at a reduced price without a physician order. Results will be available on JCH&L patient portal. Patients can sign up for the portal when they have the screening if they don’t already have access. Results will not be shared with your provider, and the costs must be covered at the time of service. Insurance will not be billed.
Appointments are required at least 24 hours before the testing time by calling the JCH&L Receptionist Line at 402-587-5193. Payment with cash or check is required at the time of testing. If you wish to use a credit card, please let the scheduler know. Since this is not a physician-ordered exam, it is not covered by Medicare or other insurance, and results are not sent to a physician. Availability is limited, and this special pricing is only available for tests listed and at the special times.
The complete blood profile, called a general health panel, is available for a cost of $75. It includes measures of electrolytes, sugar, proteins, and overall kidney and liver functions; complete blood count, lipid panel, and TSH (thyroid.) This is comparable to the complete blood profile which was previously offered annually for a reduced price. Fasting is required prior to this screening.
Other tests available separately include General Chemistry, $25; Lipid panel, $25; CBC, $20; TSH, $25; Hemoglobin A1C, $25; PSA, $25; Vitamin D, $60; Blood type, $25. Some of these screenings require fasting, others do not. All of these tests are available at patient request on Wellness Wednesdays (4 p.m. to 6 p.m.) and Fasting Fridays (6 a.m. to 8 a.m.)
To make an appointment, call 402-587-5193 anytime and leave a message about what you want to schedule, and a number to call you back. We will return your call on the next weekday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Appointments are required at least 24 hours before desired test time. Check in at the Outpatient/ER entrance.
Since this is not a physician-ordered exam, it is not covered by Medicare or other insurance, and results are not sent to a physician. Payment will be collected at time of service. Cash and checks will be accepted for payment.
