How Internet-Based Lab Tests Access Helps Clinical Laboratories Serve Un-Insured and Under-Insured PatientsInternet-based companies that provide consumers with access to lab tests provide a significant and highly valued service for patients, particularly for those patients who are uninsured and underinsured.

The companies also provide services for patients who have high deductible health insurance plans and for any patients looking to keep the cost of lab tests low. Typically, patients who are fully insured do not need to the services of Internet-based companies that provide consumers with access to lab tests because their lab tests are paid in full by a third-party insurance company, or these patients are required to pay only a small co-pay or coinsurance at the time of service.
