Patient Assistance for Lab Services (PALS) is a service of The Own Your Own Health Partnership, a health awareness co-op of Missouri-based HepC Alliance and NeedyMeds, a Massachusetts-based information resource dedicated to helping people in need find assistance programs to help them afford medications and costs related to health care.
We offer over 350 commonly ordered blood tests, such as CBCs, Liver Function Panel, Triglycerides, and Glucose. Some of the tests cost as little as $5, which may very well be less than the cost of your insurance co-pay.
The way this works is very simple: when your physician orders a lab test, you simply have the physician fill out our order form, which can be found online or faxed to their office. The physician completes the order and then they or you can fax the order to us. (The order must be written by a physician.) We then arrange with a participating clinic where your sample will be taken and then shipped to us. Patients can pay for the tests upfront or at the clinic where the specimen draws were completed. Test results are sent to the patient and to the provider. (We do not provide medical advice or analyze your results. Contact your physician for any follow-up information about your test results.)
Our goal with this service is to offer the best and most accurate testing that is also prompt and, most of all, inexpensive. Our prices are completely transparent: you can look up the prices for all tests here on our website.
Your care and health is of our utmost concern. We aim to make the lab process as simple and affordable as possible. Every step of the process has been streamlined to make it as easy for you as can be while at the same time being as medically rigorous as necessary to ensure the results are accurate and reliable. We want you to get healthy, and we know that being armed with the best information about your physical condition–through the results of our hundreds of tests–you and your physician will be able to make the most informed decisions possible about the future of your health care.
Our services have helped thousands of patients to move forward on the road to recovery and wellness, and we have been able to make that journey easier through our low prices. We’re able to offer such low prices because of the logistics of our online and mail-in services, which reduce overhead costs, and we pass that savings on to you. You can rest easier knowing that you will be healthy and financially secure.
