The UnitedHealthcare Laboratory Benefit Management Program was developed to help improve the quality of outpatient laboratory services, support evidence-based guidelines for patient care and lower costs for our members. Key components of the program include:
- A high-performing, lower cost network of laboratories that helps provide consistent clinical practices and cost-efficiency.
- Clinical policies that more closely tie evidence-based guidelines to laboratory test orders to support appropriate utilization
- An online Physician Decision Support tool to help make it easier for ordering care providers to choose the right tests and laboratories for our members
