Direct Access Testing Defined
“Direct-Access-Testing provider" is one apt description of Health Tests Direct (HTD).
HTD is sometimes also referred to as a “Direct-to-Consumer” health services provider.
Whatever you prefer to call us, HTD will always save you 50-81% on your blood tests!
Direct Access Testing defined: a Direct Access Testing provider like our company enables you to experience the convenience of “three” very important personal health management services “directly”, and therefore at deep discounts:
(1) HTD arranges for your blood-draw DIRECTLY with a clinic WITHOUT your having to first make an appointment, or visit a doctor, or pay them for a costly exam, and,
(2) HTD arranges DIRECTLY with a laboratory for the analysis of your blood specimen, WITHOUT your needing a prior prescription from your personal physician, and,
(3) HTD emails, faxes, or U.S. mails (your choice) your lab results DIRECTLY and IMMEDIATELY to you the same business day we receive them! If you request, we can also send a copy to your personal physician- that is, ONLY IF YOU REQUEST IT. Otherwise, your results are ALWAYS CONFIDENTIAL and sent ONLY to you.
How can we possibly save you 50-81%? We save you money in at least three (3) distinct ways! First, we arrange for you to skip the middle-man (“the doctor”), and to skip their always cursory but always costly “physical exam” that “they” would normally require of you before they will order a blood test for you. Second, the higher volume of blood tests that we arrange for thousands of health-conscious people all throughout the U.S.A. earn us a lower ‘analysis’ price at the laboratories than your lower-volume doctor must pay them for the exact same blood test. Third, HTD does not “mark-up” our blood test service costs as high as a doctor typically will. Not even close!
Those are just the three major factors. There are several other money-saving operational processes we have incorporated into our organization that helps us to help you save money too. For instance, we ask you to pay in advance- so, we do not have to deal with late payments, partial payments, or bounced checks like so many businesses. We also do not accept insurance, which would automatically require "negotiating" payments and waiting 60-90 days to receive them. All of these processes combine to allow us at Health-Tests-Direct to considerably reduce our overall operational expenses and pass along to you a savings of 50-81% off what you would normally pay when, instead, you get your blood test ordered through your personal physician.
Direct Access Testing through Health-Tests Direct™ is the modern, 21st Century process of personal health monitoring and management. Direct Access Testing allows you to completely ‘skip’ the old fashioned, outmoded, more expensive process of first spending your time and additional money to personally visit a doctor…get a prescription filled…make a clinic appointment, and so on! Instead, Direct-Access Testing is all about saving precious time and saving precious money, too. This enables you - along with your physician - to more easily and regularly monitor your health and take the very earliest preventive measures against any discovered illness or disease indicators!
A final and unfortunate note to share with you here about "Direct Access Testing": Dumb, shortsighted laws exist on the books in New Jersey, New York and Rhode Island that are totally inconsiderate of their resident’s health needs- and their family's budget limitations. These three states DO NOT PERMIT blood testing their resident citizens using discounted “Direct Access Testing”! This state-mandated restriction applies to both of the labs HTD contracts with: Quest Diagnostics and LabCorp.
Further, the states of Maryland and Massachusetts also impose that same no-access restriction on LabCorp, but NOT on Quest Diagnostics (yes, MD and MA residents CAN order blood tests there through Quest). Why restrict one lab and not the other? Why restrict either one? We can only offer this surmise as answer: "politics". In any case, HTD regrets that we cannot do anything about these state’s uncaring attitude and 11th century Dark Ages thinking regarding it's very own tax-paying resident's personal health management!
