You Can Actively Monitor Your Own Health With DAT

Direct Access Testing (DAT) is a service offered by Broad-water Health Center (BHC). DAT allows you to order your own lab tests without a doctor’s order. It’s convenient, affordable and fits into busy lifestyles and schedules.

This may be of particular interest to those patients whose health insurance plans do not cover certain wellness, screening, or health maintenance tests. Medicare patients may find this ser-vice beneficial, since many annual screening tests are not cov-ered or may not be paid because of frequency limits. This lab service also allows you to order tests based on your health con-cerns.

DAT lets you actively monitor your own health. The pluses to DAT include:

 

 

 

No appointment necessary.

    • Just walk into the BHC lab the FIRST WEDNESDAY of every month between 6:00 am and 5:00 pm.
    • Order the tests and we will send the results directly to you.
    • You may order these tests without a Physician Order.
    • Payment by cash, check or credit card is required at the time of service (your insurance company will NOT be billed).
    • Anyone under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

You are encouraged to share your results with your health care provider and are responsible for contacting a physician if you have questions, receive abnormal results or feel unwell.

For most tests, you will not need special preparations. A 12 hour fast is recommended for the lipid, chemistry screen and diabetes check. BHC offers a wide range of test through their DAT service.
