How HTD works- how to order blood tests
HTD offers you ALL these great "Yes, you can!" choices:
- You can choose to use either one of the two largest federal and state-certified forensic labs in America!
- You can choose which lab's discount prices will save you the most money!
- You can choose any of 4,000+ locations* to visit Monday-Friday and have your blood drawn- without needing an appointment!
*On a vacation or a business trip somewhere in the U.S.A.? There'll likely be a blood draw location nearby, wherever you are!
HTD has national contracts with both of our nation’s two largest blood testing laboratories Quest Diagnostics and LabCorp. Combined, they have 4,000+ blood draw center locations throughout the USA. So in most cases you’ll have to drive only a short distance to get to one or the other of them.
Please note that each laboratory has a slightly different availability of blood tests and blood test panels that they permit HTD to offer you "online". So you should first check to see if the blood test(s) you need or want to order are available through the lab you choose.
Also, please be mindful that each lab provides HTD with different pricing for the exact same blood test! Sometimes it's only a $2-$3 difference and sometimes it's $20-$30 or even more! So, please check and compare prices BEFORE you finalize your order and pay. We want you to take full advantage of the lowest possible pricing you can. YOU HAVE CHOICES: that's one of the reasons HTD contracts with "two" labs for you and not just one!
*RESIDENTS OF NY, NJ, RI, MD, and MA, PLEASE NOTE:
Unfortunately, discounted blood testing (i.e., "Direct Access Testing") services are NOT available through LabCorp to residents of five states: NY, NJ, RI, MD, and MA.
Further, discounted blood testing services are NOT available through Quest Diagnostics to residents of three states: NY, NJ, and RI, but ARE available through Quest to MD and MA residents and (like LabCorp) to residents of all other states. We apologize for this ridiculous state-mandated inconvenience for so many Americans, but HTD has absolutely no control over these prejudicial and unwarranted restrictions placed on the laboratories by these states!
To order your own blood tests, just follow these two very easy steps:
Step 1- Order one or more blood tests or test panels (you'll be saving up to 81%)
Once you select a lab, you’ll be presented with a list of tests that are available from that one lab. Choose as many tests as you want. The blood draw fee of $8.50 is charged only “once”, even if you order and have your blood drawn for 2 or 3 or "a dozen" different tests at the same time. If you’re unsure of what tests you’d like to order, you can always give us a call during our California (Pacific) M-F office hours at 1.800.456.4647 ext. 206 and ask us for clarification. (“Medical” advice per se cannot be given, however. Please check with your physician for that.) You’ll pre-pay for your tests with us ONLINE (NOT at the blood draw center). After you pay for your tests, you’ll need to print out your “Authorization Form” (i.e., your blood test "requisition") which you MUST take with you to the blood draw center.
Step 2- On a weekday and a time of your convenience, visit the blood draw center you found nearest you (no appointment needed for your blood draw)
Go to a blood draw center location of the lab you chose. Please remember to take your pre-paid “Authorization Form” (blood test requisition form) you printed out. Do NOT pay the draw center any additional money- remember, you are already PAID IN FULL! After your blood sample has been collected, the draw center will “overnight” it to the lab for testing. (HINT: Try to get in and have your blood drawn BEFORE 2 PM to ensure your sample is picked up by the courier that SAME day.) Then, normally you should have your results within 1-3 day. You will be notified by an email from Operations@OHSinc.com immediately- the very minute they are reported to us. (NOTE: A very few types of blood tests can take 5-8 days for the lab to properly process and before results are available.)
You're Done- 1-3 days later, privately view your confidential test results right here online!
Your test results will normally be available here on our HTD website within 1-3 days after the day your blood sample was collected and sent overnight to the lab. Again, please be aware that there are a few types of tests that are exceptions and will take 5-8 days to analyze before their results are released. Both Quest Diagnostics and LabCorp electronically release blood test results to HTD 24/7, just as soon as they become available on Mondays through Fridays- and sometimes (but rarely) on weekends too. You will need your registered User Name and Password to confidentially access your secure test results.
