Labcorp and its subsidiaries continue as a UnitedHealthcare preferred laboratory network provider for 2020-2021

24 July 2020

Labcorp and its subsidiaries are pleased to announce that following a rigorous quality review process, they will continue to participate as a UnitedHealthcare Preferred Laboratory Network (PLN) provider for 2020-2021. Labcorp and its subsidiaries share a commitment to UnitedHealthcare’s Triple Aim – improving healthcare affordability, outcomes, and patient experience – and look forward to furthering these endeavors through the second iteration of the PLN. Labcorp and its subsidiaries have a long and deep relationship with UnitedHealthcare, and together they have brought many improvements and innovations in laboratory care to patients and physicians. The 2020-2021 extension for PLN inclusion further solidifies that partnership. The new PLN year launched on July 1, 2020.

Labcorp and its subsidiaries were one of only eight organizations selected from UnitedHealthcare’s broad laboratory network, serving as a reminder to UnitedHealthcare’s more than 48 million members and 110,000 physicians that Labcorp and its subsidiaries meet UnitedHealthcare’s high standards for access, cost, data, quality, and service. Labcorp and its subsidiaries provide 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 and its subsidiaries as their PLN laboratory, physicians and patients will receive laboratory services that prioritize better patient outcomes at lower costs, reflecting Labcorp and its subsidiaries’ mission to improve health and improve lives.

Labcorp and its subsidiaries and the other 2020-2021 Preferred Lab Network providers are highlighted in UnitedHealthcare directories starting July 1, 2020.
