Labs, Prescriptions and Imaging

For patients with insurance, these tests can be billed to insurance by the outside lab, pharmacy, or hospital as usual, although it is often cheaper to do cash pricing.  We will always look to find ways to reduce the costs of imaging, prescriptions, and labs. We currently offer wholesale pricing on labs, and are working on discounted prices for imaging services. 

ER visits, hospitalizations, and specialist visits


These are the responsibility of the patient, with or without insurance.

Immunizations

 

We will work with you to get the best price we can find. Often this involves sending a prescription to a pharmacy so that you can use your health insurance to pick up the immunizations which we can then administer in our office. Sometimes immunizations can be given by the pharmacist, without a prescription. Some immunizations are also available at a low cost from a local health department.
