Tech-2438: New, CLIA, COLA Accredited Clinical /Toxicology Laboratory in South West USA
Profitable, Turnkey, Medicare, Medicaids, Novitas Jurisdiction
The Lab is a full-service Toxicology and clinical services laboratory accredited by COLA and CLIA with state-of-the-art equipment. The Lab’s services include, but not limited to drug screening, drug confirmation, therapeutic drug monitoring, Hematology and Chemistry testing. The lab is run efficiently and has EMR System for merging data.
The Lab is quite young (was launched only in January 2016 and received its CLIA in November 2016). The complete billing process started operating in May 2017. In less than a year, the company has acquired a good size volume and is gaining additional customers. It is organized as an S Corporation with the seller as sole owner owning 100% of the company.
The Lab is in an excellent location with lots of medical offices and no competition from local labs in a 5-mile radius. As a result, it is able to grow its volume to 300-450 toxicology samples per month (revenue of about $55K-70K per month) over the past year. In 2018 it did 4,100 samples (about 342 samples per month). Last year it passed credentialing requirements from BCBS and got their billing ID and is able to bill as in-network rates with BCBS (although it is not in-network with BCBS yet). The lab is also paid by United Healthcare and several other insurances out of network. It is also credentialed with state Medicaid and Ambetter/Superior.
Although the Company is making an excellent progress and the Lab is running well, the owner realized that it takes too much of his time from his other healthcare businesses which are well-established and he can grow those businesses more efficiently as he has good experience in that area.
