Laboratory Testing

LK Health has a fully equipped on-site laboratory which is CLIA and COLA certified. However, depending on your health plan, testing may not be covered by your insurance and you will be directed to your health plan’s contracted laboratory.

LK Health does not base treatment recommendations on coverage. Traditionally insurance would be billed for services rendered. However, with recent changes in insurance plans and HMO’s, your plan may or may    not cover specific charges relating to your treatment.  Therefore, it will be the patient’s responsibility to be clear about their insurance benefits. Patients will be notified if their plan does not cover a specific service and will have the option to pay for all non-covered services when services are rendered.  For “covered” benefits, we will bill your insurance.
