Today I met with representatives from Interpath laboratory. The only independent lab left in this area. It's family-owned and operates out of Pendelton, OR. They provided me with pricing for labs and we got started on setting up for Oodle's opening. When I got their special pricing for Direct Primary Care it was everything I had hoped for!
Here are some examples:
CBC (completed blood count) -- $3.25
CMP (comprehensive metabolic panel) -- $3.44
TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) -- $4.50
Estradiol -- $8
Testosterone -- $8
I challenge my readers who have had blood drawn at their doctor's offices to look at their bills. See what the institution charged your insurance. Then compare to these numbers. Then breathe slowly into a paper bag. There, there... It's going to be okay... DPC will save the day!
