The Preferred Lab Network consists of currently contracted independent, free-standing laboratory care providers that have met higher standards for access, cost, data, quality and service, based on a rigorous application and review process. We’ll work with these distinguished labs to continue our efforts to improve the care provider and member experience. The Preferred Lab Network providers will be highlighted in our directories starting July 1, 2019, to make it easy for members and care providers to identify them. For more information on how UnitedHealthcare’s Triple Aim focus — improving health care affordability, outcomes and the patient experience — is now adding more value for lab services, visit newsroom.uhc.com/experience/ preferred-lab-network.html.
