Mednovations recognizes the need in the community for mobile phlebotomy or home blood test services. Many elderly or disabled patients are home bound and cannot travel to laboratories or physician’s offices to have blood or urine tests done. As such, Mednovations has developed a unique and much needed service (home blood tests) where phlebotomists travel to the residence of the patient, collect a home blood draw or urine sample and transport the specimen to the appropriate laboratory for analysis.
Home Blood Test Process
Our staff will make the entire collection experience simply and easy. We start the process by confirming the type of test to be done with the ordering doctor’s office. We then verify insurance information and laboratory to be used for testing prior to arriving at the patient’s place of residence. All home blood draw equipment, including test tubes, needles and urine cups are provided by Mednovations. The only items patients are required to have on hand when our phlebotomist arrive are an official form of identification and insurance card. Our phlebotomist will give each client a courtesy call prior to arrival and once they arrive they will introduce and identify themselves to the patient prior to starting the home blood test. All of our phlebotomist are screened, so, every patient can rest assured that they are in good hands.
Skilled Phlebotomists for Your Home Blood Draw
Our friendly and knowledgeable phlebotomists travel to private homes and medical facilities such as skilled nursing home or assisted living communities. We know the importance of patient privacy and that’s why each of our staff is trained on HIPPA rules and regulations. In addition, we ensure that all home blood test specimens are collected and packaged in a sanitary manner. Once test results become available, the patient’s physician or clinician will then contact the them to discuss test results. We currently service Prince William and Fairfax counties in Northern, Virginia as well the cities of Arlington and Alexandria in Virginia.
Home Blood Test Insurance Coverage
Patients should be aware that while insurance will cover the cost of the laboratory test, it does not cover the cost of collecting the specimen and transporting it to the laboratory. Mednovations accepts all forms of major credit card for payment of collection and transportation of specimens. Don’t wait. Call us now to schedule your home blood draw or urine collection.
