About Lab Tests
▪️Most conventional lab tests ordered by Aging Gracefully physician will be billed directly to your insurance by the lab.
▪️Some lab tests we offer as part of our functional medicine testing program may not be covered by insurance and in these cases you will be charged a fee for a particular test by the lab or through Aging Gracefully.
▪️The specific tests ordered will be personalized to you based on your initial evaluation with an Aging Gracefully doctor and may include blood saliva urine or stool testing.
We will make every effort to make you fully aware of any additional lab fees that may be incurred and to give you the opportunity to choose which lab tests you feel comfortable paying for.
▪️You are under no obligation to purchase any specialty testing.
▪️Should any lab results indicate you may need further testing you will be directed to continue your care with your primary care physician or a relevant specialist, or should you choose you may continue to work with your Aging Gracefully physician.
▪️At home test kits: If a lab test kit is mailed to you by Aging Gracefully, you will be charged the day the kit is mailed.
▪️If your particular insurance company only pays for blood work done at a particular lab facility like LabCorp, you must inform us of this in advance of having blood work done. Most insurance plans cover labs done by major national labs.
