Check out Ulta labs. Order what you want online, then make an appointment at a Quest Diagnostics center for the actual draw. Cash price for most of my labs through Ulta is cheaper than having them run through my insurance.

Check out Ulta labs.

FYI, if anyone uses Ulta Lab Tests, there’s an easy way to get another 20% off their prices: sign up for their marketing emails. Each daily email includes discount codes.

For example, the currently-active 20%-off-all-tests code is UltaHRS23 (valid until “Midnight on January 13th, 2024. MST”).

I’ve used Ulta Lab Tests several times and have no complaints.

ETA: I see that 20%-off discount codes are listed on their website (“Weekly Promotions” on main page). No need even to sign up for marketing emails.

Does anyone know if Marek is good in New York?

I’m afraid it isn’t possible to order labs yourself if you’re in NY. It’s illegal.
