Can I get bloodwork done at an out-of-state lab?
I live in West Virginia, but see a doctor in Maryland. He wrote me a lab order for a whole slew of things, one of which is a fasting test. It would be more convenient to have all of this lab work done in a local lab (and I wouldn’t have to starve myself for as long). Is there any reason I’d need to go to a lab located near my doctor?
I have no health insurance and will be paying for all of this myself, so that’s not an issue.
