Getting Lab Tests at UHS

Lab tests require an order from a UHS or off-campus healthcare provider.

  • We strongly suggest that off-campus providers fax orders directly to the lab. Bringing orders to your appointment may extend your time in the lab.
  • If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, chills, sore throat, loss of taste, loss of smell, runny nose, or muscle aches), please schedule an appointment for symptomatic COVID-19 Testing to be done up to 36 hours prior to visiting the lab. Please allow one hour for the lab to perform test. Proceed to the lab after you have received Negative test result for COVID-19.
  • Your provider should explain any preparations for your test(s). Call the lab if you have questions.

Using Health Insurance to Pay for Lab Tests

UHS accepts most major insurance plans.

Our lab performs some tests in-house. Clinical Pathology Laboratories (CPL) performs tests that we cannot.

  • Some insurance covers lab tests only if performed by an “in-network” lab. Click here for insurances commonly billed by CPL or call your insurance company to see if CPL is in network. Provide CPL’s National Provider Identifier (NPI) number - 1194769497.
  • CPL sends results for tests they perform to UHS but sends the bill for those tests directly to your insurance for payment.
  • If your insurance requires you to pay any or all costs for tests done at CPL, CPL will mail a bill to you for the amount you owe. CPL cannot post charges to What I Owe.

If you prefer not to use insurance for payment of lab tests for privacy reasons:

  • Tell lab staff at each visit to which this applies.
  • Before 5 p.m. on the day of your lab visit, it is your responsibility to inform the UHS Billing and Insurance Office (512-475-8394, option 2) that you do not want to file an insurance claim and to pay for test charges in full. Discounted charges may not apply.
