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).


Dr. Jennifer Jones serves as the Department Chairperson and Medical Director of the Pathology Department. Dr. Jones also oversees the Pathology support MDH receives from five Board Certified Pathologists representing the West Central Pathology Specialists group from Quincy, Illinois. This construct will provide MDH with the highest level of Pathology expertise and support available while creating a staffing level commensurate with the needs of the organization and patients.


The MDH Laboratory is accredited by the Commission of Laboratory Accreditation of the College of American Pathologists (CAP). During the CAP accreditation process, inspectors examine the laboratory’s records and quality control procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine the entire staff’s qualifications, the laboratory’s equipment, facilities, safety program and records, as well as the overall management of the laboratory. This stringent inspection program is designed to specifically ensure the highest standard of care for the laboratory’s patients. The MDH Laboratory is one of more than 8,000 CAP-accredited laboratories nationwide.

Representatives of the MDH Laboratory celebrated earning the 2023 CAP certification.
