Health Plan Information

What You Need to Know About Billing and Processing 

LabCorp values its relationships with health plans, and we are committed to providing physicians and patients - your members - access to COVID-19 testing during this time. LabCorp will continue to provide contracted and out-of-network health plans with LabCorp testing and coverage information.

As of April 14, 2020, CMS advised that (i) COVID-19 testing utilizing high-throughput technology should be identified by two new HCPCS Codes U0003 or U0004 (as appropriate) instead of CPT Code 87635 and HCPCS Code U0002, respectively.

Consistent with CMS’s Ruling and our prior communications, LabCorp will accept reimbursement at 100% of the CMS 2020 National Limitation Amount (NLA) for LabCorp 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID19), NAA test (test number: 139900), which is now $100.00. Read more below.
