Confidential and HIPAA compliant and results emailed to patient directly within 48 hours.

"This DIY approach provides consumers the ability to manage their own healthcare in a secure private environment," Caduceus Medical Director Gregg DeNicola MD

KOS Labs, based in Orange County, Ca. and an affiliate of Caduceus Medical Group, has recently expanded its services to include DIY online lab ordering, offering consumers the opportunity to test without a doctor's order (direct access testing) at koslabs.net. KOS Labs is CLIA approved, operates multiple locations across Southern California, and is certified in the state of California as well as the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for diagnostic testing.

The newest service just launched is patient directed lab ordering online. This “DIY” approach provides consumers the ability to manage their own healthcare in a secure private environment. When ordering lab work from Kos Labs, consumers don't need an order from a physician. They simply order online and come to one of the locations to have labs drawn. When the results are ready the office contacts the patient by email so the labs can be reviewed privately from a smart phone, tablet, work or home computer.

With the implementation in 2010 of the Affordable Healthcare Act (AHA) leading to more cost sharing for the consumer, KOS Labs recognized that consumers are becoming more pro-active in managing both their own and the entire family’s healthcare.

Consumers also might also choose to order their own lab tests if the results might be sensitive, such as for drug tests or tests for sexually transmitted diseases.

KOS Labs offers all labs for the discounted cash price of $20 and offer the following benefits ordering directly from the website:

  •     Confidential and secure (HIPAA compliant)
  •     No physician order necessary
  •     All test results reviewed and interpreted by a physician
  •     Results emailed to the consumer directly
  •     Sent to your physician at your request
