Laboratory Benefits

If your healthcare provider is in New York State and requires you to use laboratory services for testing, the In-Network Laboratory to use is Quest Diagnostics. If your provider is in New Jersey and requires you to use laboratory services for testing, the In-Network Laboratory to use is Lab Corp of America. Remember – the Laboratory to use is based on where your healthcare provider is located. (When Medicare is primary, you do not need to choose In-Network or Out-of-Network facilities. Always be sure the facility is a Medicare provider.)
