In 2019, UnitedHealthcare is growing its national network of participating laboratory providers to better support our members and the care providers who order laboratory services:
- LabCorp will remain in-network and until Jan. 1, 2019 will serve as UnitedHealthcare’s exclusive national laboratory care provider.*
- Beginning Jan. 1, 2019, Quest Diagnostics will be an in-network laboratory care provider for all UnitedHealthcare members.*
LabCorp offers nearly 5,000 frequently requested and specialty tests, including a wide range of clinical, anatomic pathology, genetic and genomic tests, delivered through LabCorp’s broad patient access points, including a growing retail presence. Quest, which is an in-network lab for a limited number of UnitedHealthcare plans in some markets today, has 6,000 patient access points and will be in-network nationwide for all plan participants beginning Jan. 1, 2019.
