For Patients

Setting a new standard for patient access & pricing transparency

Lab and imaging test data drive more than 70% of healthcare decisions. Yet, patients often don’t comply with the majority of tests their doctors order, due to the inconvenience and unpredictable costs of getting tests done.  Med Health Services is committed to changing that.  Opening access to low-cost preventative testing allows more people to take charge of their health and work with their doctors preventively, before chronic disease sets in—avoiding the snowballing medical bills that come once illness has taken hold.

Med Health Services (“MHS”) is the Tri-State’s leading outpatient diagnostic testing company dedicated to offering the most reliable testing at the most affordable pricing, while affording our areas patients access to same-day testing.  Founded in 1993, MHS’ goal is to provide patients who are tired of waiting weeks to schedule diagnostic testing or who find themselves waiting for hours-on-end in the hospital waiting room each time they need their blood drawn, with prompt, same-day testing services and scheduling flexibility in the convenience of their doctors offices or one of our outpatient facilities.

At MHS, our test prices are always online and available. They are a fraction of other labs and imaging providers.  MHS is the leading low-cost provider of laboratory testing, ultrasound testing, cardiac nuclear stress testing, and nerve conduction testing services. We work with physicians to ensure patients receive the lowest out-of-pocket prices available in our area for outpatient diagnostic testing and specialized disease markers—ensuring you get the tests you need, and  your doctor(s) get the information they need for early detection, before symptoms set in, and effective treatment.

Did you know that list prices for a simple blood cholesterol test in the Pittsburgh area can vary in price among different laboratory providers by 649%? MHS is proven to be by far the most affordable of these providers.

Imaging tests can also drastically vary by provider by up to 914%–a common ultrasound of the heart, for example, may cost one patient $225 at MHS, while another patient could pay up to $2057 for the same test.  WHY?  Same test. Same quality. Same outcome.  Nine (9) times the price!

MHS offers unparalleled pricing transparency.  We believe transparency turns patients back into people. After all, its your body, your health, and your right to shop for the highest quality testing at the most affordable prices.  At MHS, we provide upfront pricing that empowers patients to make informed healthcare choices before their procedure or visit.  After all, if the same service can be safely provided in a different setting, a prudent patient should not have to pay more for that service in one setting than another.

MHS currently has more than 90 diagnostic imaging facilities and patient walk-in laboratory draw stations in and around the Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, Ohio and the West Virginia Pandhandle areas, which can accommodate patients on an as-needed basis. No appointment is necessary to have blood drawn, we do, however, require your physician’s prescription to provide any type of diagnostic service.

Patients can expect technologists and radiologists who are among the best in their specialties. Each of our outpatient facilities throughout the area are certified by the American College of Radiology.
