· Laboratory work – the GCCS Health & Wellness Center can do most laboratory work. Dr Furr can see the patient and order labs, or you can bring an order from an outside physician and the results will be directly faxed to each physician listed directly from LapCorp.
1. Routine wellness labs are done as well as labs 2-3 times yearly if you are on diabetes medications, cholesterol medications, thyroid medications, or medications that could alter electrolytes (hydrochlorothiazide, spironolactone, furosemide, bumex, potassium, long term steroid use).
2. In–office urine dips, urinalysis, pregnancy tests, Quantefron Gold bloodwork to test for tuberculosis (TB).
· Pre-Operative Labs/EKG – Pre-op lab and EKG before surgery and save money on your surgical bill.
· Generic Medications – 70 generic medications are available at no-cost in the center including antibiotic, blood pressure medications, cholesterol medications, depression medications, birth control medications including Depro-provera shot, cold and allergy medications. A 90-day supply of most medications are given. Check the website for complete list.
· If another physician writes a script for a medication and it’s stocked at the center, established patients can get the medication filled at no cost.
· Brand Name Medications – Greater Clark County Schools is now paying co-pays of brand name medications through the Elect RX program. Information should have been received at the beginning of the school year, but the center can fax the prescription to Elect RX after a brief office visit to review medications.
