Service Charges and Paying Your Pathlab Account


Important

Medical test results should not be interpreted in isolation but in conjunction with any clinical signs and symptoms a person may also have – your registered healthcare provider has specific training and experience in this. Pathlab do not provide any interpretation services for results on self-requested tests. We strongly advise you to consult your healthcare provider about interpretation of the results. Pathlab has no responsibility for the ongoing security of your results once they are sent.

Self requested testing

Most routine tests are able to be requested as a Patent Referral (Patient Paid) without a doctors form. Please note however that some tests require clinical indications (a sign , symptom or medical condition that leads to the recommendation of treatment or procedure) so may not be available.

Self requested testing is not funded. You will be required to pay for your testing.

Do I have to pay for my tests?

Health New Zealand | Te Whatu Ora (TWO) provide funding for laboratory testing services and many services are free for eligible patients. Unfortunately there are strict guidelines we have to adhere to. When funding is not available you will be required to pay for your testing.

To view more information on test funding eligibility, visit the Ministry of Health's guide to eligibility for publicly funded health services by clicking here.


Testing is not funded by Health New Zealand | Te Whatu Ora (TWO) and will require payment in the following cases (not exhaustive)

  • people who are visiting New Zealand and/or are not New Zealand residents and who are not eligible for public funding
  • pre-employment or training placement e.g. nursing and medical students
  • employment related (workplace health testing) or for an overseas posting or deployment
  • immigration or visa medicals
  • insurance medicals or any other medicals such as a pilot's medical
  • patients of non-medical practitioners such as dentists, naturopaths
  • self-ordered by patients

Most Pathlab collection facilities are equipped with EFTPOS, or you can pay cash. We apologise for any inconvenience, but we do not accept cheques and do not have account options for payments of personal testing.


Please note:

Regardless of the individual test price there is a minimum charge of $15.
Prices are subject to change and will be charged at the most recent published.
