- The Patient Portal Group
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, The Patient Portal Group 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 with our Partners
Our partner’s 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 Lab Retrievers Lab. The only items patients are required to have on hand when our phlebotomist arrive are an official form of identification and insurance card.
Their 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 their 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. They know the importance of patient privacy and that’s why each of our staff is trained on HIPPA rules and regulations. In addition, they 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. They currently service Pasco and Pinellas counties in Central , Florida.
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. Lab Retrievers accepts all forms of major credit card for payment of collection and transportation of specimens.
