Mobile Phlebotomy Services Houston

At the National Phlebotomists Providers Network, we believe that all people should have access to high-quality, affordable, and convenient healthcare.

Many people do not get the required tests that they need done to maintain their health because of a lack of transportation, insurance, or scheduling conflicts. Without getting these tests done, patients are risking their health and overall well-being.

The importance of getting blood tests and other samples taken cannot be overstated. Not only are these used by doctors to help provide accurate diagnosis but they are also used for maintenance to establish how well certain medications or lifestyle changes are working for you.

At Home Phlebotomy Services

It is the goal of the NPPN to provide convenient, efficient, and compassionate healthcare. We strive to make our services available to everyone who needs them.

As the nation’s premier mobile phlebotomy service our services are currently available in most major metropolitan areas. To see if your area is covered by our mobile phlebotomy services, please reach out to our support team below!

What Is A Mobile Phlebotomist?

A mobile phlebotomist fulfills the same role as a regular phlebotomist. The main difference is that whereas a regular phlebotomist works exclusively at one location such as a lab, doctor’s office, or hospital, a mobile phlebotomist can provide their invaluable service at any number of locations.

Typically, mobile phlebotomists will travel to a patient’s house, office, or care facility to draw their blood or collect other samples per a doctor’s orders. They follow the same regulations as a lab phlebotomist and follow the highest safety and quality regulations in the business.

A mobile phlebotomist removes the hassle of having to arrange transportation and waiting in a long line at the lab. In addition, it is the preferred way to get blood work done for elderly patients as they don’t have to worry about mobility issues or a lack of transportation.

Are Mobile Phlebotomists Safe?

Absolutely. Our phlebotomists follow strict safety and quality guidelines, follow all recommended COVID protocols, and ensure complete HIPAA compliance when interacting with patients and collecting samples.

Professionally Trained And Equipped Mobile Phlebotomist

At the NPPN, we directly employ our highly qualified, trained, and certified mobile phlebotomists. This enables us to ensure that they are kept up to date on continued education, certification renewals, and changes in safety protocols at all times.

In addition, because we directly employ our phlebotomists, we are able to hold them to a higher standard than a contracting agency would, and we are able to supply them with state-of-the-art technology and equipment that helps them do their job even more efficiently.

What To Expect During And After An In-Home Phlebotomy Service

Before your appointment, your doctor will tell you if you need to fast or not for the blood tests and will provide you with a sample collection kit for any urine or stool samples that may need to be collected before your appointment.

At your appointment, your phlebotomist greet you and explain every step of the process before they proceed. First, they will verify your patient demographics and will review your doctor’s orders to prepare for the collection.

Once they have their tubes prepared they will place a tourniquet around your arm to help your veins come to the surface, and they will locate one that is suitable for the blood draw.

From there, they will clean the draw area with an alcohol solution and after letting it dry for a moment, they will use a brand new needle to perform the venipuncture. You may feel a slight sting, but the pain will quickly go away.

The phlebotomist will then collect any tubes that are needed one at a time. After the tubes have been collected, they will remove the tourniquet, remove the needle, and apply pressure to the draw area before placing a bandage on it to keep the area free from bacteria as it heals.

Once the collection is done, they will label all of your tubes with your patient information and will securely package them into a storage container that they will drop off directly to the lab of your choice, or the one that your insurance has indicated.

How To Get Started And Use Our Phlebotomy Services

Getting started is as easy as making an appointment using our patient portal below! There are a few things that you will need to have handy before you schedule your appointment. These include:

Can A Phlebotomist Come To My House in Houston?

Mobile Phlebotomy Services Near Me Vs In-Clinic Services

For many, the thought of having to wake up early in the morning to fight traffic and drive to your local lab only to then wait in line for hours past your appointment time is a nightmare.

At the NPPN, we value your time. Rather than taking the time out of your day to try to visit a lab, our mobile phlebotomists will come to you at your convenience. Simply schedule the day and time that works best for you, sit back, and relax.

Our mobile phlebotomists will come to your home, office, managed care facility, or anywhere else that you need to get your blood drawn at.

Can Any Nurse Draw Blood?

Technically yes. In most situations, however, a nurse will not be the one drawing your blood at any facility or home health care situation. Nurses have many other important tasks that they need to focus on such as giving appropriate medications, injections, and caring for a patient’s overall health.

Because they already have so many other important obligations, nurses are not typically expected to draw blood or collect samples as well.

This is where mobile phlebotomists come in. Our trained specialists draw blood all day, every day. They are uniquely qualified to make your experience as comfortable, efficient, and pain-free as possible.

Houston Mobile Phlebotomy Companies

The National Phlebotomy Providers Network is the premier mobile phlebotomy company in the Houston area. We have partnered with several major lab companies, such as Quest and LabCorp, to offer our home blood draw services across the nation.

Does Quest Come To Your House in Houston?

No, Quest does not offer its own home blood draw service. Instead, they have contracted us at the NPPN as their licensed mobile phlebotomy provider.

Does Labcorp Do Mobile Phlebotomy in Houston?

LabCorp does not offer its own home blood draw service. Instead, they utilize services like ours to offer a mobile phlebotomy service.

How Much Does a Mobile Phlebotomist Charge?

We are continually working to partner with as many major insurance providers as possible. In some cases, however, such as with Medicare, our services are not typically covered. Our phlebotomists will be happy to provide you with a reimbursement form that you can submit to your insurance upon request.

In cases where insurance will not cover our services, there is a flat-rate fee of no more than $99 that will be collected at the time of service.

Can A Phlebotomist Draw Blood Without A Doctor’s Order in Houston?

While direct access testing is legal in Texas, there are very few phlebotomists who will draw your blood without a doctor’s order.

Our phlebotomists will not collect any samples, without a properly filled out laboratory requisition form or doctor’s orders. This helps to ensure that the proper samples are being collected for the proper tests, and it also helps when it comes to having insurance cover the bill.

Without a doctor’s order, your insurance will not cover any tests that do not have a diagnosis code. Random testing without a diagnostic or maintenance purpose in mind is not advised.
