ANY LAB TEST NOW®, one of the first direct access laboratory testing services companies in the U.S., has joined forces with AmeriDoc® in an effort to provide a complementary alternative to its customers who wish to take control of their health.

According to the Wellness Council of America, up to 70% of doctor office visits can be handled over the telephone. It is estimated that 50.4 million Americans are now uninsured, and costly urgent care is often taking the place of primary care.
“Our partnership with AmeriDoc® extends our core clinical services, providing customers who receive undesired test results a fast and inexpensive pathway to 24/7 medical consultations including medical diagnosis, limited prescriptions and recommendations for seeking ongoing care from a primary care physician,” stated Joe Neely, CEO of ANY LAB TEST NOW.
ANY LAB TEST NOW serves communities across the U.S. by providing direct access to lab tests for health and wellness, drug and alcohol testing, paternity and other DNA tests. Prices are transparent and affordable, fitting the budgets of the uninsured and underinsured. Although ANY LAB TEST NOW provides thousands of lab testing services, it does not diagnose or treat and customers are referred back to their physician. For those that do not have a primary care physician, consulting with an AmeriDoc® network physician offers a complementary solution for ANY LAB TEST NOW’s customers.
