Service Charges and Paying Your Pathlab Account


Do I have to pay for my tests?

The District Health Boards (DHBs) 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 DHBs 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
