Ace Medical Services Group offers our members on-site laboratory services on a walk-in basis, with no need for an appointment. Our Doctors will provide order the specific tests you need based on your age, your medications, your overall health status and the amount of time since your last set of blood tests. Young, healthy individuals may only need blood tests every five years, while patients with active medical issues may need tests annually or even more frequently. If you are interested in having specific tests performed, you can discuss them with your provider in the office or via email before coming in to have your blood drawn.
Tests are accurate only if you have been fasting before having your blood drawn. You need to fast before your tests, and should not eat food or drink anything besides water for a minimum of 12 hours prior to the test. If you need to take medications during this time, you should drink plenty of water in order to stay hydrated and help make your blood draw easier.
Insurance plans vary, and your coverage depends on your specific policy. While most tests are covered by insurance, you may want to contact your insurance carrier to ensure coverage before having your test done
