As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to spread and people are expected to shelter in place for the foreseeable future, we are seeing an increased need for mobile phlebotomy services in Southern California and Arizona. Even those with health conditions requiring regular blood draws are hesitant to leave their homes and go to a patient service center at this time—especially those in the “at risk” category, such as seniors and the immunocompromised. This makes mobile phlebotomy an excellent option, since these patients can still get the service they need, while remaining in their homes.
VeniExpress Is Open for Business!
We want to let you know that since mobile phlebotomy is considered an “essential service”, VeniExpress is still operating at full capacity. All of our phlebotomists are healthy and currently able to work, likely due to the strict health and safety measures to which we have been adhering. We will continue to maintain our high standards for the safety of both our employees and patients, and so we can keep offering mobile phlebotomy services to those who need it.
Good News for People with PPO Insurance Needing In-Home Blood Draws
There are probably people out there who haven’t called us yet because they’re worried about the cost associated with having an in-home blood draw. However, there’s good news! Some PPO insurances are now covering mobile phlebotomy service fees. This is a new development in the insurance industry, and is expected to be temporary—most likely lasting only as long as people are expected to remain home bound. But for now, you can take advantage of this money-saving option if you have a PPO insurance plan that covers mobile phlebotomy service.
Here’s how it works: when VeniExpress performs an in-home blood draw, we will first attempt to bill your PPO insurance for the cost of our service. If your insurance company is one that is covering mobile phlebotomy at this time, you may receive in-home service for little to no cost. If your insurance company isn’t covering mobile phlebotomy service, VeniExpress is currently offering a special discount for patients over the age of 60.
A Safe Option for Those Needing Blood Draws
If you are due (or overdue) for a blood draw, don’t put it off any longer because you are concerned about leaving your home. Let us come to you so you can get the service you need in the safety of your own home. The phlebotomist that comes to your home will exercise extreme caution to help keep you and your family healthy.
Just like you, we are hoping the COVID-19 crisis is behind us before too long, but in the meantime, VeniExpress is committed to doing everything we can to prevent the spread of the virus, while still providing the services people need.
