Important Information for Patients
No need to make an appointment
Please stop into one of our lab locations at your convenience. Bring your
insurance card and a form of Identification.
Preparing for lab tests
Ask your doctor if your tests require fasting. If so, you must go without
food or drink for 10-12 hours. Drink plenty of water. Check with your
physician about any medications that you may be taking.
Most routine testing is completed within 24-48 hours, but some testing
takes a week or more. We will send results to the doctor who ordered your
tests. Please allow an additional 1-2 business days for your provider
to review the report.
BCH accepts most major insurance plans. Your specimen(s) can be collected
regardless of insurance company. If we are unable to test your specimen
due to insurance contracting reasons, we can forward your specimen to
a contracted testing site.
Doctors orders are not required
While the majority of people obtain a physician’s order for lab tests,
you are also welcome to order tests yourself. Be aware that health insurance
does not cover self-ordered tests. We offer affordable
self-pay pricing at the time of service. For more information, click
