LabCorp is a UnitedHealthcare Preferred Laboratory Network Provider

LabCorp is pleased to announce that it is a UnitedHealthcare Preferred Laboratory Network (PLN) provider. Following a rigorous quality review process, LabCorp was selected to be one of the first labs selected by UnitedHealthcare to be a PLN provider. As a PLN provider, LabCorp shares a commitment to UnitedHealthcare’s Triple Aim – improving healthcare affordability, outcomes and patient experience - now enhanced with the launch of the PLN. LabCorp has a long and deep relationship with UnitedHealthcare, and together they have brought many improvements and innovations in laboratory care to patients and physicians. The PLN represents the next step in that relationship. The PLN will launch on July 1, 2019.

LabCorp’s selection as one of seven PLN labs – from more than 300 labs that are part of UnitedHealthcare’s broader network — serves as a reminder to UnitedHealthcare’s more than 48 million members and 110,000 physicians that LabCorp provides high-quality, high-value laboratory services, with an emphasis on an improved laboratory experience. That experience includes greater access and convenience through a broad network of collection centers, including LabCorp at Walgreens, along with online and mobile tools that make it easier to order the right tests, to schedule lab appointments, and to receive and understand test results. By choosing LabCorp as their PLN laboratory, physicians and patients will receive laboratory services that prioritize better patient outcomes at lower costs, reflecting LabCorp’s mission to improve health and improve lives.

More details about the PLN, including enhanced benefits and cost savings that members can receive through using LabCorp, will be available in the coming months.
