American Metabolic Laboratories are out of network of any and all insurance companies. However, for a nominal fee we can file an official reimbursement claim for you. A number of insurance companies require a referral from the individual's own M.D. or D.O. physician. (Medicare/Medicaid are not accepted.) In such a case, the doctor must indicate medical necessity i.e., ICD 9 diagnostic codes for each test ordered. The doctor must provide his/her UPIN. A legible copy of your insurance card and your date of birth must be enclosed. - Otherwise, our triple Board Certified, licensed pathologist will order your tests but will not be involved with your claim for you are not a patient of this doctor. The script you will receive for having your blood drawn is called, "Request for Phlebotomy" for Testing and Research. PLEASE, if any, indicate your diagnosis and date in some detail.
You should take the Request for Phlebotomy form, provided, to any of the blood-drawing stations in your area. A phlebotomist will draw the appropriate specimens of your blood; then you will overnight ship your specimen(s) to the Laboratory. We will mail the test results to you or to your ordering physician . In the latter case, the ordering physician, by law, will receive the results and s/he needs to authorize their release to you. If our staff pathologist doctor ordered the tests, the authorization is automatic. These results will indicate if there are any abnormalities. In case of abnormal results , you should make sure to show them to your personal physician, who can determine if you have any serious problems and what you can do about them. You can also call and discuss your results with Dr. E. K. Schandl.
The State of Maryland disallows American Metabolic Laboratories to accept laboratory work from citizens of that state.
RETURN POLICY FOR TEST KITS:
All returned kits must be unused, undamaged and include all supplies and paperwork. There is a $30 restocking charge. Shipping & handling fee will NOT be refunded. Returns are accepted and refund is credited back to you for up to maximum 30 days after ordering the tests.
If longevity risk factors, such as glucose, iron, cholesterol, or other tests such as the CA Profile© are abnormal, slightly elevated or below normal, for example, you can take lifestyle changing steps to reverse the trend. You may wish to schedule a Nutritional/Biochemical Evaluation by Dr. Schandl. You may want to repeat the abnormal test in 4 to 6 week, and then chart your progress in improving your health and your chances of living longer in good health.
You can call for a free 15-20 minutes professional test interpretation by phone. You can also request Dr. Schandl for a personal biochemical/nutritional program reflecting upon your individual circumstances by calling:
954. 929. 4814.
Blood testing is an important and exacting science. Interpretations depend on the knowledge and expertise of trained clinical scientists. Therefore, it is recommended that you work closely with your physician or other qualified health professional for a satisfactory outcome. American Metabolic Laboratories, a fully licensed clinical facility, as any critical care hospital laboratory, do not analyse the secretory/excretory product, saliva.
It is valuable to know the professional's
background, so inquire about it.
