Lab procedures for having blood work done:

Fasting labs require the member to not have any food at least 12 hours prior to blood work to be drawn. It is highly recommended that you drink plenty of water ONLY prior to getting labs drawn. Water keeps you hydrated and makes drawing blood easier. The lab technician is not authorized to draw blood without a Provider’s (MD, PA) prior authorization.
