What to Know Before Your Lab Tests

Our team at Lompoc Valley Medical Center wants you to know exactly what to expect prior to any testing, so we have compiled a list of FAQs.

Will my Insurance Cover Laboratory Tests?

While we accept most insurance plans, coverage varies from plan to plan. We recommend contacting your insurance provider for details.

Can I Find Out What my Lab Tests will Cost Before They Are Performed?

Absolutely. We understand that cost is a concern for many, and we are happy to provide an estimate before any service is performed. You will be quoted our “regular fees” and our discounted “self-pay fees.”

When Will my Doctor Get the Results?

Most routine tests are performed in our laboratory, and we can typicallyhave them completed and reported to your physician within 24 - 48 hours.

Can I Receive a Copy of My Results?

You can obtain a copy of your results through our Health Information Management department. This requires you to sign an authorization release. It can take 7 – 10 days to process your request once submitted.

Do I Need to Fast Before my Lab Test?

Not all lab work requires fasting. However, if you are receiving a glucose or cholesterol panel, you may need to abstain from eating and drinking for 12 – 14 hours before your test. Please consult with your physician before visiting the laboratory for a more detailed pre-testing plan.
