Now accepting applications for the Preferred Lab Network

It’s that time of year again — the annual application process for admission to the UnitedHealthcare Preferred Lab Network is now open.

Now’s the time to apply

In December 2021, we reached out to free-standing labs already participating in the UnitedHealthcare network inviting them to apply to join the Preferred Lab Network program. If your lab received a letter and would like to apply, please make sure to get your application in by Jan. 31, 2022.


If your independent, free-standing lab meets the criteria, we’ll let you know by May 16, 2022. We’ll officially announce the labs that will be included in the Preferred Lab Network in summer 2022.
