What documents do I need when scheduling a test?
To process your lab work or test as quickly as possible, remember to bring:

  • Physician order with the full name and address of your physician and accurate diagnostic code provided by your healthcare provider. All Medicare patient orders must have ICD-10 codes.
  • Insurance card with the full name, address and phone number of your insurance company.
  • Co-payment, if applicable.
  • Photo identification.
  • Type of procedure you are scheduling, such as an MRI or CAT scan.
  • Insurance pre-certification, if required. If you are not sure whether a procedure needs to be authorized by your insurance company prior to having a test completed, call the member services number listed on the back of your insurance card to ensure that you get optimal reimbursement. Precertification is required by most U.S. managed care organizations.

Cardiac Testing

Cardiac tests are used to diagnose and treat heart disease and peripheral vascular (vein and artery) diseases that can put you at risk for a stroke, heart attack, blood clot and loss of limbs. Non-invasive tests, like cardiac event monitors, stress tests, Holter monitors, echocardiograms (cardiac echo) and electrocardiograms (EKGs), are typically performed in an outpatient setting and provide your doctor with important information to make an accurate diagnosis.

PREPARING FOR YOUR PROCEDURE

If your healthcare provider determines that cardiac testing is required, be prepared to ask questions about the procedure, such as what information the test will provide, the benefits of doing the test, and the next steps to consider if the test indicates a problem.

Follow all instructions given by your healthcare provider. You may be told to not eat or drink anything for a certain amount of time before your test, stop taking certain medications, or wear loose-fitting clothing.

When you provide blood, a throat swab, urine or other specimen, the sample is sent to a laboratory where it will be examined under a microscope. Some test results will be ready the same day while others may not be available for a few weeks. The results are sent to your doctor who will discuss them with you.

X-Rays & Imaging

X-rays are a type of radiation called electromagnetic waves that create pictures of the inside of the body. They can help healthcare providers determine if a bone is fractured or broken. Chest X-rays can also determine if a patient has pneumonia, and mammograms are a type of an X-ray used to look for breast cancer.

PREPARING FOR YOUR PROCEDURE

If your healthcare provider determines that an X-ray is required, be prepared to ask questions, such as what information the X-ray will provide, the benefits of doing the X-ray, and the next steps to consider if the X-ray indicates a problem.

Depending on which area of the body is being X-rayed, you may be asked to wear a hospital gown. X-rays emit a small amount of radiation, so you may also be asked to wear a lead apron to protect certain parts of your body, and to remove anything metallic, such as jewelry or eyeglasses.
