This test provides important information about red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets, which are the key components of the blood. It may be done as part of a regular checkup or if you have symptoms of an infection or a disease that can affect certain blood cell levels, such as anemia or leukemia.

In an adult, the blood sample is taken by placing a needle in a vein in the arm or pricking a finger. In a baby or child, the sample may be taken by pricking a finger or heel.

  • This care path's costs do not include the charge to draw blood from a vein (venipuncture).
  • There will only be one charge to draw blood, even if multiple tests are being performed on the samples that are taken.

What should I ask my healthcare provider before having this test?

  • Is there any special preparation for the test? (If so, get clear instructions on what you need to do.)
  • What is the reason for the test? Will the test results change my treatment plan? If not, do I need the test?
