TEST COUNTRY

Since 2002, Test Country has been making laboratory testing more affordable and easier for individuals and businesses alike. All of their test kits and in-lab services are FDA approved and cleared CLIA-Waived or performed by a CLIA-accredited laboratory. In other words, you can expect the exact same quality and standards you would get if you went through an insurance company's required laboratory.

The range of lab testing available through Test Country is impressive, and their website makes it very easy to find what you need. Start by using the navigation drop-down links at the top of the page, or look on the left-hand side of the page as well. Available categories include the following:

  • DNA & Genetics - Paternity, Blood Type, Health Risk
  • Substance Abuse - Alcohol, Drugs, Nicotine/Tobacco, Steroids, and Synthetic Drugs
  • Health & Wellness - Hormones, Wellness, Vitamins, Nutrition, Animal Wellness, and more
  • Health Hazards - Lead, Radon, Asbestos, Mold, Air Quality, Fungus, Water, Radiation/UV/Heat, Heavy Metals, and more
  • Pregnancy/Fertility
  • Disease Detection - HIV/STD, Cholesterol, Hepatitis C, Cancer, Diabetes, Thyroid, Bacteria and more

You can also use the handy tool in the middle of the page, labeled "Need to Find the Right Drug Test?" if you need help figuring out which test is best for your home or work situation.

Many of Test Country's lab testing services allow you to collect the sample yourself, making it easy for concerned parents or employers to easily screen for harmful substances; these kits are also available in bulk for any group testing situations. However, other lab testing does require you to have the sample collected in a laboratory. In that case, you can click on the map of the United States, also in the middle of the page, and enter your ZIP code to find one of Test Country's 8,000 testing centers in their network.

Test Country offers a rewards program, which could save you a nice chunk of cash if you do testing in bulk or if you have a particular test that you need to repeat frequently. You'll be enrolled automatically if you create an account during the checkout process, and you'll start earning points for every test you purchase. Those points can then be redeemed for a Test Country gift card that can be used on further lab testing.

And, Test Country further keeps prices low by offering a price match guarantee. Be aware that they offer this price match for several specific competitors only, so we suggest that you look at the list of eligible companies by clicking on the Price Match Guarantee link on the site.

Finally, Test Country has an excellent reputation: an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, along with numerous customer compliments praising Test Country's speed, accuracy, and affordable pricing.

With such a wide array of available lab tests, low prices, and a fantastic track record for customer satisfaction, Test Country is our top choice for lab testing for your personal or business needs.

ULTA WELLNESS

For over four years, Ulta Wellness has been making lab testing more affordable for the average patient. Within their network of laboratories, they are able to save their customers up to 80% off the regular self-pay costs typically charged. Additional savings are available each week and can be found under the Weekly Promotions heading in the Order Tests dropdown at the top of the page.

Compared with the competition, Ulta Wellness offers a terrific variety of tests: more than 1,000 in total. These can be purchased individually or as part of a package. Not sure where to begin? Choose the Get Started option under the Order Tests heading. You can choose an area of interest, such as Baseline Biomarkers or Menopause. You'll then be given a list of results to choose from; click the "Compare Panels" box (or scroll down) to see a side-by-side comparison of what specific tests are included in each set of tests.

We found Ulta Wellness' pricing to be very competitive with other providers. Their network is also comparable, so unless you live in a very remote area, you should have no trouble finding a lab to have your blood drawn. All of Ulta's tests do need to be drawn in a lab, and if you live in NJ, NY or RI, your state's laws prohibit you from using this service. This is due to the requirement that your own physician order any lab work, and not because of any restrictions on Ulta Wellness itself.

Although there weren't many customer reviews of their services, we were impressed by their A+ rating as an accredited business with the Better Business Bureau. More remarkable was the fact that, in the four years that Ulta Wellness has been BBB accredited, there haven't been any customer complaints registered against the business. That gives us reason to believe that they're doing a noteworthy job of delivering on their promises and keeping clients happy.

Lab Testing

To help you find the Best Lab Testing, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of Test Country and Ulta Wellness.

With all of the changes in the healthcare industry over the past decade, many people are finding themselves in need of lab testing: those who are uninsured (or underinsured), patients who prefer to receive results privately instead of going through a physician's office, and people whose insurance policies may not cover specific, needed tests.

It may surprise you to learn that you can access lab testing on your own terms, without the need of a doctor's order. There is an increasing number of lab testing services available that can help you understand and manage your own health, with most of them offering the ability to collect samples at home instead of going to a laboratory in person.

What kinds of lab testing can you access? Some of the most commonly-purchased tests include the following:

  • Infectious Diseases
  • Ovulation and/or Pregnancy
  • Thyroid Function
  • Allergies
  • Cancer Screening
  • Diabetes
  • Immunology
  • Kidney Function
  • Alcohol
  • Drugs and Steroids

When considering a Lab Testing service, there are several factors to keep in mind.

  • Cost. How much does each test cost? Are there packages available that can save you money? Does the company offer any discounts or free shipping on testing kits?
  • Variety of tests available. What types of tests can you have done through the service? Is there a wide enough variety to cover your needs, both now and in the future?
  • Convenience. Do you have to locate a laboratory in your area, or will the company send a testing kit to your home or office?
  • Reputation. Does the testing company have a good track record for accuracy of results, privacy, and helpful customer service? Does the service carry a rating with the Better Business Bureau?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Lab Testing services available today. We hope these reviews help you get the testing you need right away!
