More Convenient Testing Process

Patients experiencing symptoms related to RSV, influenza, and COVID-19 do not need a doctors’ order to get tested for those three ailments. Patients can pull up to the climate-controlled Drive-Thru, enter the building, and be conveniently tested from inside their own vehicle.

Individuals already signed up for the Patient Portal will typically have their test results loaded to their account the same day. For those with an established primary care provider, testing results will also be shared with their provider’s clinic office. Anyone without an established primary care provider will receive a phone call with their results from a MDH staff member.

Patients will have to contact or schedule an appointment with their primary care provider for a prescription covering any medicine not available over-the-counter.

The MDH Drive-Thru is open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. Sunday the Drive-Thru is closed but those who need a lab blood draw can have that done at the MDH Convenience Clinic inside Health Services Building 2. Please bring a photo ID and insurance card when getting tested.

New Pricing for High Deductible Insurance Plans

Patients with a doctor’s order needing laboratory testing done, but have a high deductible insurance plan or no insurance, can take advantage of discounted prices for self-pay.

Those using the self-pay service (check or credit card payments accepted at the time of service) cannot have these tests also run through their insurance plan for payment.

"McDonough District Hospital's new retail pricing for laboratory work embarks MDH on a transformative era in patient care. By providing an alternative to insurance billing, especially beneficial for those with high deductible health plans, it offers both affordability and accessibility. Now, individuals and families can access competitive pricing for lab testing, effortlessly paying at the time of service,” said Director of Laboratory Services Brittany Doll MS, HTL(ASCP). “This initiative not only simplifies the payment process but underscores the hospital's commitment to putting patient well-being at the forefront."

Patients can take advantage of this new self-pay service at the MDH Laboratory, located on the first floor of the hospital, or at the MDH Drive-Thru (open Monday-Saturday).
