Keeping costs low, to keep patients happier.

Being a preferred lab means lower or no costs and greater value for both you and your patients.

  • Lower out-of-pocket testing costs for all UnitedHealthcare patients
  • $0 out-of-pocket costs for some patients*
  • Pricing transparency, with real-time cost estimation during the office visit or at our Patient Service Centers
  • Fewer unexpected bills for better patient satisfaction

*Varies by state, plan, and member deductible

Higher incentives for you

Receive higher UnitedHealthcare-distributed incentive payments by sending more of your patients to a Preferred Laboratory Network provider.


A UnitedHealthcare in-network provider (physician) must have a Provider Based Contract (PBC) to be eligible for the Preferred Lab Network incentive.
