Laboratory Test Registry Protocol

We’re committed to working with members and care providers to help support improved population health outcomes, positive care experiences and affordable products. An increasingly important part of this commitment includes coordinating coverage guidelines and policies for new and emerging technologies, including lab testing.

Effective Oct. 1, 2020, in in-network free-standing and outpatient hospital laboratory claims for most laboratory testing services must contain the laboratory’s unique test code. In addition, each test code submitted on a claim must match a corresponding laboratory test registration provided in advance to UnitedHealthcare.
