  • Medical tests in US

    Hi,

    My sister is planning to visit US for a few months.

    She has a medical condition which require her to carry out a couple of tests (blood and urine) every couple of months. I am wondering how that could be worked out during her stay here?

    1. Can she have the test done in a Lab without having a doctor prescribe them?

    2. Will buying insurance be of any help (since this will be considered a pre-existing condition)?

    3. Is there any way I can find out the cost of these tests.

    Thanks.

      Thanks for the response.

      What would be the best way to get a test prescribed by a doctor in US?

      Can she visit a doctor to get the prescription with having insurance?
      (Even if she has insurance, i guess the visit will not be covered as this is a pre-existing condition)

      Can she get a prescription by visiting an Urgent Care Center ?

      Thanks

        These questions are not directly related to insurance. Therefore, I will try to answer to the best I can.

        You will have to visit the doctor.
        Whatever tests/labs he/she recommends, you can get them done in the lab.
        Whatever medicines he/she prescribes, you can get them from the pharmacy.

        Insurance will NOT cover any of the above expenses.
        Thanks & Regards
