You can get diagnostic lab tests on campus at UHS. Charges apply.

Getting Lab Tests

To get lab tests, you need an order from a healthcare provider - like a prescription. No appointment necessary.

Your healthcare provider should explain how to prepare, if necessary, but feel free to call with any questions.

If you have a lab order from an off-campus healthcare provider, have it faxed directly to us or bring it to the UHS Lab in advance.

Health Insurance and Billing

To protect your privacy, UHS bills health insurance only at your request. Please tell us at each visit whether you want to use health insurance. Depending on where the tests are performed, your insurance will be billed by UHS or by Clinical Pathology Laboratories.

Some health insurance plans cover lab tests only when they are performed at labs that have a contract with that insurance plan. Contact your health insurance company to learn how your plan covers lab tests.

If you choose not to bill your health insurance, UHS Laboratory staff can tell you how much a specific lab tests costs. UHS will bill your What I Owe if you do not pay at the time of service.

For more information about billing charges and payment options, visit the UHS Cashier/Insurance Office in SSB 2.106 or call (512) 475-8394.
