Can my HealthTap doctor order a lab test for me?

Yes! When judged medically necessary, HealthTap doctors can prescribe lab testing. HealthTap and Quest Diagnostics are working together to offer common blood tests, white blood cell counts, and even gene-based and molecular diagnostics. At this time, ordering imaging tests like x-rays or an MRI through HealthTap is not possible.

Through HealthTap, a virtual doctor visit is the only method to ask for a lab test. The decision to request a lab test, however, is up to the doctor.

The lab test(s) that the HealthTap doctor ordered are listed in the Summary Note of your virtual visit. You will have the choice to schedule an appointment at a Quest Diagnostics location that's convenient for you after the lab test has been ordered and displayed in the Summary Note. Most likely, a secure account creation or logging in will be required.

Your HealthTap Visit Transcript will contain all lab test details. You will be notified by email/SMS as well as on your  HealthTap account when the results are ready
