    How to get BW

    Hello, the low T center I was getting my labs done at is refusing me now(since I won't become a member). Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks!

    A commonly recommended one is priv atemdlabs dot com although BW appears to have gotten much more expensive lately due to labcorp price hike so I’m also looking around

    Yes I agree, just spent an hour on the phone with Labcore customer service. Total waste of time. I dont understand how at the T center paying out of pocket it was 85 bucks. Labcore quoted close to 300 for the same panels.

    You should see what Labcorp charges insurance companies. Such a rip off.

    I paid ~$75 for basic hormone BW through Private med and labcorp last year then 4 months later it was over $300 for the same thing. I’m really interested in what guys are doing now since after you add lipids in we’re talking $400+. Even the other option quest diag you’re still talking $200, much more doable but Jesus man, $400+?!

    With no other option I suppose I’ll budget for it but I can’t imagine many guys are. I know of a couple more options but haven’t found just what I’m looking for. Would love to be able to find all I need for under $250, been on the lookout for a topic like this.

    Any of you guys use your HSAs (health savings account) to pay for bloodwork through these sites? Wondering if it’s a big no-no or the way to go.

    ultalabtests. Try it. I will be surprised if it isn't the cheapest option for THE SAME tests, even with the $8 draw fee they add per ORDER, not PER TEST.

    I leave it up to the reader to add the dot com

    I can't see how this would be a problem. I think most HSAs issue a debit card, right? So, it should look just like any other Visa or MC on the planet. I have used our plan to pay for my blood work, but I do not know if it is an FSA or HSA. It probably doesn't matter, though.

    Assuming it is a legit, allowable expense, I can't see the down side.

    I have yet to find the right combo, but I think it was talked about in another thread. Anyhow, I just buy the tests 'ala carte', adding them to the same order. Still comes out cheaper.

    What brought me to ultalabtests is the fact that they offer Quest but I think they offer Labcorp. I prefer Quest so don't usually even consider Labcorp.

    260 for a decent panel, few things I didn't have to have. The Nurse at the low T center still wouldn't let me come (whatever). Just want to compare from my last results.
