At UIW Health Services, laboratory services are used to obtain and study samples, such as blood and urine, to help our medical providers make diagnosis and treatment decisions.
Occasionally, lab orders require special handling that can only be done at a local laboratory and cannot be processed on campus by Health Services. However, we can send a copy of your private health insurance card to the lab selected in advance so they can properly bill for off-campus lab work.
Before your appointment with the physician and nurse practitioner, you should:
- locate your insurance card
- create a list of your current medications or prescriptions
- think about any food allergies or other information about yourself that may be medically relevant
If you have questions, please contact our clinic at (210) 829-6017.
