• Patient-ordered Lab Tests

  • Direct Access "Patient-ordered" Testing

    Mercy Regional Medical Center offers Direct Access Testing through its laboratory, with 40 common laboratory tests that can be ordered either directly by the patient without a provider's order or by their healthcare provider. In an attempt to provide affordable, convenient, and confidential laboratory testing, Direct Access Testing allows us to further meet the needs of our patients and their healthcare providers.

    These affordable tests allow patients to get important information about their health when they want it. Direct Access Testing can be useful for screening, detecting, or managing a disease or therapy.

    The Process

    1. Select your tests: You can select the tests you would like to order from the menu above.

    2. Prepare for your test: It is recommended to fast for 12 hours prior to testing for the most accurate results. Over-the-counter medications, prescription drugs, herbal remedies and alcohol consumption may affect your blood testing results. Please do not stop taking prescription medications without consulting your health care provider.

    3. Get your blood drawn: Patients can obtain a blood draw at any of Mercy Regional Medical Center's draw stations (see contact information below). You do not need an appointment or provider's order. Payment is due at the time of service; cash, credit cards, and personal checks are accepted. By collecting payment at the time of service, no claim is submitted to an insurance provider and no bills will be mailed. This helps lower the cost of service and provide more affordable costs to patients.

    4. Review your results: Tests will be mailed in a report form, which includes the normal reference ranges for each test. If any of your tests are outside of the reference range, or are significantly different from previous results, please make an appointment to consult with a health care provider. Please be reminded that disease or health problems cannot be diagnosed or treated with lab tests alone.
