We currently offer all tests from the labs on this list. See our lab test catalog for a complete list of tests we offer.
Many practitioners find Rupa Health extremely convenient and useful even if we don't have every single lab you use. That said, we're always adding to our lab catalog based on your recommendations & needs. Drop us a line, we’d love to hear about the labs you love and use!
Our goal is to make the process of lab testing quick and painless. We know your time is valuable, and you should get to spend it on what matters most: patient care. With Rupa, you can place a lab test order, and not worry about it at all until the results are in.
Once you place in order with Rupa, we do the groundwork. We fill out the requisitions, drop-ship the kits, and track patient samples and results for you all in one place. We also guide your patient along the way: we send them a shipping notice, cheat sheets, and handle any specimen issues.

Rupa is predominantly useful for drop-ship orders, but we just started offering Instant Requisitions recently. With Instant Requisitions, you can place an order through Rupa for a kit that you hand out to the patient in person or draw in the office. The labs we offer this for are BostonHeart Diagnostics and US Biotek. We’ll be adding this option for more labs soon. See how this works.
We notify you by email every time a result comes in, and results from every lab come into the Rupa portal as PDFs. You’ll be able to view or download the PDFs, request a clinical consult with the lab, or mark the results as reviewed in the portal. By default, we don’t release results to your patients. You can choose to release select results to patients after they come in.
No, you don’t need to have existing accounts with any of our partner labs! When you start ordering through Rupa, we automatically set these up for you so that you can begin ordering seamlessly.
Yes! We can make accounts for staff members and link them to your clinic, so your staff will be able to place orders on your behalf. You can message us in the portal with your staff member’s name and email, and we’ll be happy to set them up.
All our communication with your patients happens over email. We check in with your patients at several points in the process.
Real humans on the Rupa Health team help your patients throughout the process. You can check out our full patient experience here!
If you order tests that need a blood draw, your patient will get their kit in the mail with their requisition form. They’ll need to take this kit with them to a blood draw center, or have a mobile phlebotomist come to them.
In our instructions email, we share phlebotomy options with your patient. By default, we guide your patients to the lab's contracted phlebotomist network. Labs generally have options for mobile and in-person draws.
Yes, absolutely! We actually send your patients cheat sheets, sample requisitions and phlebotomy information to guide them through the process of collecting their sample. We also have an entire Patient Help Center that answers commonly asked questions. You can read about our patient experience here.
We maintain contact with labs throughout the process. If there are Specimen Issues with your patient’s sample, the lab will contact us. We resolve these between the lab and the patient and message you about the resolution.
Yes, we send a check-in email to your patients 2 weeks into the process, asking them how completion is going and seeing if they have any unresolved questions.
By default, we don't send results directly to your patient. However, you can choose to release results to patients with one click from your Rupa portal. Your patient will be emailed a secure link to access their results. See how to do this here.
Test pricing is the same whether you or your patient pays for the order. We always give patients the practitioner wholesale price for lab tests, along with a 7% ordering fee (which helps Rupa cover our costs!). Most of the time, this still comes out to less than what a patient would pay the lab directly. You can check out our pricing in our catalog here.
We’re excited to announce we now support multiple payment options for patients in need! Patients can pay for their lab testing using the following methods:
Yes, you can choose to pay for tests yourself at checkout. Your patients will still get an email about the order, but the email will not include any of the billing details. You can then charge your patients separately, allowing you to include the interpretation or follow-up fees if you wish.
Our goal at Rupa is to help keep you compliant in your practice. Because of this, Rupa doesn’t allow you to add a margin to your testing as mark-ups are against the law in many states. If your practice runs off of a membership or bundled pricing models, you can use practitioner-pay and charge your patients separately. This would allow you to include the interpretation fee or follow-up appointment costs.
Right now, Rupa is cash-pay only for all lab tests except those from Genova Diagnostics. You can order through commercial insurance and Medicare for Genova.
For cash-pay labs, we allow patients to pay for their order using HSA, FSA, or payment plans. Patients can decide on their own if they wish to pursue insurance coverage retroactively. We don’t create Superbills for patients, but we have built a downloadable PDF guide to help your patients create Superbills on their own.
We accept returns for most lab tests within 30 days of payment. Please see our return policy for more details.
