Some health insurers do not list smaller medical laboratories in their directories.
What does this mean for you, the patient?
- Fewer choices
- Less convenience
- Longer waiting time
Ask your insurance provider for a complete list of labs with which they are in network. Increasing your choice pool will give you more flexibility and allow you to choose the lab most convenient to you. Another benefit? Visiting a smaller lab may reduce your waiting time for tests, as they are less likely to be overcrowded as some larger labs can be.
