Mobile Phlebotomy Services San Jose

The National Phlebotomy Providers Network is the premier mobile phlebotomy service in the nation. It is our mission to ensure that everyone has access to high-quality, affordable, and compassionate healthcare.

We believe in patient-centered care. We actively strive to ensure that our patients are able to reliably and consistently have access to the diagnostic and maintenance tests that are required to ensure their health, well-being, and longevity.

Reliable healthcare should be available to everyone that needs it, and we at the NPPN have made it our goal to fill the gap in the provider-patient chain.

At Home Phlebotomy Services

Millions of Americans struggle with mobility, transportation, and caregiver problems that do not allow them to get consistent and reliable blood work done on a regular basis.

At-home and mobile phlebotomy services aim to fix this problem. By removing these common barriers to healthcare, we hope to help empower people to take charge of their health.

What Is A Mobile Phlebotomist?

A mobile phlebotomist is a specialist that is trained to obtain blood, urine, stool, and other samples for diagnostic and maintenance purposes.

They are able to collect any at-home kits that your doctor or other healthcare providers provide and will collect them per the exact specifications required by the lab of your choice, or the lab that your insurance indicates.

Our mobile phlebotomists are held to the highest quality and safety standards in the industry today. They are trained in the most recent and effective HIPAA compliance methods and COVID-19 prevention methods as well.

Are Mobile Phlebotomists Safe?

In many ways, it may be safer to have a mobile phlebotomist come to you than for a patient to go to a lab to get their blood drawn.

For example, when patients have mobility issues and require the aid of a walking device such as a walker or a cane, it can be difficult, stressful, and at times dangerous for them to make their way to a lab for blood work.

This often causes patients to put off getting their testing done for months at a time, which is dangerous for their health and overall well-being. We want to remove this barrier to healthcare by having our mobile phlebotomists come to you.

Professionally Trained And Equipped Mobile Phlebotomist

Since we directly employ our phlebotomists, we are able to ensure that they are consistently up-to-date on all mandatory certifications, continued education, and special training.

Our phlebotomists are all fully trained in the most recent safety and quality measures including all COVID-19 prevention protocols, and they have access to the most state-of-the-art equipment required to perform their jobs successfully.

How To Prepare For An At Home Phlebotomy Service

The best way to prepare for your appointment is to follow any instructions that your doctor may have given you. It is important to fast for the time period that they recommend, typically 8 hours, to ensure that your results are as accurate as possible.

We also recommend that you stay hydrated and drink plenty of water the day of and the day before your appointment. This will help make your veins easier to find and will make the process easy. It’s a good idea to have a snack ready for after your blood draw as well.

It is also important to have your ID, laboratory requisition form, and any necessary insurance information on hand as well as your phlebotomist will need to verify your identity before they draw your blood.

How To Get Started And Use Our Phlebotomy Services

Setting up an appointment for your home blood draw is quick and easy. You can set up an appointment for yourself or on behalf of a patient or loved one. We only need a few pieces of information to schedule the appointment including:

Does Medicare Pay For Home Blood Draw?

Although we are actively working to partner with Medicare so that we can offer our services to those who need it the most, at this time Medicare does not cover home blood draws.

Our phlebotomists will be happy to provide you with a reimbursement form that you can submit to Medicare upon request.

For those with Medicare and no additional health insurance, there will be a flat fee of no more than $99 due at the time of service.

Mobile Phlebotomy Services Near Me Vs In-Clinic Services

For many, the idea of getting in the car, driving across town, and waiting in line at a lab for hours to get your blood work done is not an exciting one.

With our mobile phlebotomy services, you no longer have to worry about the logistics of getting to the lab, and you no longer have to uncomfortably wait in line.

Our certified, compassionate phlebotomists will handle everything from ensuring your lab form is correct to make sure that your samples make it safely and securely to the lab of your choice. The only thing that you have to do is make the appointment and relax.

Can Any Nurse Draw Blood?

All nurses are trained in phlebotomy during their studies. It is rare, however, that you will find a nurse performing a blood draw outside of a hospital, and even in hospitals it is rare.

This is simply because nurses have so many other incredibly important responsibilities such as ensuring the proper medications are being taken, wound care, and general patient well-being to name a few.

It isn’t feasible to expect a nurse to perform your blood draw, even if they are available. As dedicated phlebotomists, we do this all day, every day. There’s no one better at it than us, and it is our goal to make the experience as easy and pleasant as possible. eo.

San Jose Mobile Phlebotomy Companies

Most major lab companies such as Quest, Labcorp, etc. do not have their own mobile phlebotomy division. The NPPN has partnered with most major labs across the country, as well as many local labs, to help offer our patients a choice in who does their testing.

Because we independently work with so many of these companies, we can draw lab work for virtually any lab of your choosing or that your insurance dictates. In addition, our phlebotomists are trained in the specific collection methods that each lab requires.

Does Quest Come To Your House in San Jose?

At this time, Quest does not have any mobile phlebotomists, nor do they directly offer any at-home phlebotomy services. We have partnered with Quest to be their 3rd-party dedicated mobile phlebotomy service in the San Jose area..

Does Labcorp Do Mobile Phlebotomy in San Jose?

LabCorp does not directly offer any mobile phlebotomy services. Instead, they utilize third-party mobile phlebotomy services like the NPPN to help their patients get their blood work done at home.

How Much Does a Mobile Phlebotomist Charge?

Every mobile phlebotomy service is different. At the NPPN we strive to partner with most major insurance providers so that there will be little to no out-of-pocket cost to the patient.

Unfortunately, not all insurance providers cover mobile phlebotomy services. In these cases, when a secondary insurance is not available, we charge a flat rate fee at the time of service of no more than $99.

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

Direct access tests are not legal in California, so a phlebotomist is not able to perform a blood draw or any other sample collection in San Jose without a laboratory requisition form or a doctor’s order.

Can A Phlebotomist Come To My House in San Jose?

Yes. Our services are available in most major metropolitan areas including San Jose. If you live on the outskirts of town, please contact our support staff when you make your appointment to ensure that we service your area.
