Important Changes to Lab and X-ray Benefits

Lab work

There are changes to our benefits plan that may contribute to more out-of-pocket costs for you! You are already required to utilize in-network physicians and facilities, if you participate in the City’s UnitedHealthcare medical plan.

In an effort to control costs, you will now be required to use in-network facilities for lab work and x-rays through your insurance. Effective January 1, 2018, if your physician sends your labs out-of-network for tests or sends you to an out-of-network imaging facility for x-rays, you will be responsible for 100% of the bill.

Out-of-network laboratories can charge you as much as $12,000 per lab test! We recommend you confirm the lab and/or imaging facility’s network status prior to having services rendered if you wish to have insurance coverage.

Reminders:

  • LabCorp is UHC’s preferred lab!
  • Check with Compass before you schedule an x-ray, MRI or CAT scan to help you compare costs and save money.
