Become a Designated Diagnostic Provider for lab services

Last modified: February 12, 2021

Beginning July 1, 2021, and subject to state regulatory approval, UnitedHealthcare is launching Designated Diagnostic Provider benefit, designed to promote a high standard of care and help protect against unnecessary costs for outpatient laboratory services.

Become a Designated Diagnostic Provider

Designated Diagnostic Provider benefit designs are intended to maximize member benefits for lab services and ensure that laboratory services are performed by providers that have met both efficiency and quality requirements. Together, we can make the health care system work better for everyone by consistently promoting cost-effective labs that deliver safe, high-quality care.

Action needed:

  • Complete the Designated Diagnostic Provider quality questionnaire by Feb. 28, 2021
  • If you meet the quality and efficiency requirements, you will become a Designated Diagnostic Provider and be notified accordingly
  • If you do not meet the Designated Diagnostic Provider requirements, a dedicated network representative will reach out to follow up and support the process
