Commonly Asked Lab Work Questions

Why can't I get Qualifying Labs done in my Physicians Office or at a different Lab?

A special process is needed in order for the Lab Work Results to be combined properly with the Blueprint Health Questionnaire. Therefore, only trained designated sites can conduct the Lab Work.

OTHER LAB WORK: Can I get other Lab Work done at the same time as my qualifying labs?

YES. Additional Labs can be drawn at a Quest PSC, but we do not recommend it due to potential for error.

If your Physician needs additional labs you will need a lab slip from your physician.
