NPPN ALF/SNF Services

Getting lab work done is easy! NPPN serves as a partner to ALF/SNF providers: we are your fast, affordable, professional source to collect any type of specimen that a doctor or healthcare facility may use for diagnosis and treatment, from blood samples to stool specimens, and to transport it to the lab for processing. We are available on-demand, on a per draw, by appointment basis. By using an NPPN mobile phlebotomist, your nursing team can focus on providing superior patient care.

 

NPPN mobile specimen providers are experienced professionals who are committed to patient care. We will draw blood and perform other duties with the utmost sensitivity to your patient’s well-being. We are experts in patients with special needs, including needle phobia, difficult veins, and anxiety. To lessen a patient’s anxiety, schedule your NPPN provider with a standing order so your patient can get accustomed to the same phlebotomist.

NPPN ALF/SNF Services FAQ

How much does it cost?

Fees are based on the complexity of the service required and your location in one of our service areas. Fees include specimen collection, the blood draw by the lab technician (venipuncture), specimen preparation and processing, and the delivery of specimens to the lab for testing.

 

NPPN mobile specimen services are typically much less expensive than the office time to do the procedures yourself.

 

Contact your NPPN provider for a quote based on the services you need and your distance from the NPPN provider and the lab.

Is my patient’s lab test covered by insurance?

The cost of the testing at the laboratory is typically covered by your patient’s insurance carrier. The fee for an NPPN provider to visit your office or your patient’s home for mobile specimen collection, processing, and transport may or may not be covered; contact your patient’s insurance provider for details.

 

There are circumstances in which your patient’s mobile specimen collection is covered by insurance. If your patient is a member of a contracted medical group like Kaiser Permanente, Brown & Toland and a number of others, he or she may receive mobile specimen collection and transport at no cost or at a discount. Contact your patient’s network practitioner to determine if mobile services are covered.

 

If your patient is not a member of a contracted medical group, your NPPN provider will provide you with the information you need to submit a claim for reimbursement from your patient’s insurance company. Reimbursement rates for specimen collection and transport vary by insurance carrier. An order for mobile lab services from your patient’s doctor may help you obtain reimbursement.

When will results be available? 

NPPN providers deliver patient specimens to the laboratory that you or your practitioner selected the same day we collect them from your facility.

 

NPPN providers work closely with all major laboratories. In our experience, most lab test results are available within two to three business days. Some tests require more time to analyze, but normally even these test results are completed within one week. Contact your patient’s physician or the lab to confirm when your patient’s results will be available.

 

Can I get a copy of my patient’s test results?

Test results are sent directly to the physician who ordered the test. In some states, testing labs are prohibited from releasing lab results to a patient. Your NPPN provider does not receive a copy of your lab results. Contact your patient’s physician to get a copy of your test results.

Information we Need for your Appointment

When you set an appointment with an NPPN provider, we will collect information on the services you want for your patient, your location and desired appointment time, and a copy of your lab order. This information-gathering process verifies your specimen processing and handling requirements, and ensures that the correct tests are completed on time. 

 

Book your appointment in Advance!

Remember to allow time for lab tests to be completed before your patient’s next doctor appointment. While most lab tests can be completed in two to three business days, some require more time to analyze. We recommend that you schedule an appointment with us at least two to three weeks before your patient’s next doctor appointment.
