Medicaid — Medicaid patients generally have 100% benefits for laboratory tests so your cost is typically $0.

Medicare Advantage, Tricare, or other Government Assistance — Some plans may expect you to cover a portion of the cost. Plans vary.

Employer or other insurance — May expect you to cover a portion of the cost depending on your plan’s copay and/or deductible. You may qualify for CARE assistance (see below) to help with the deductible or copay.
