Independence Blue Cross (IBC) has selected Laboratory Corporation of America® Holdings (LabCorp) as sole national provider of outpatient laboratory services. As the July 1, 2014 effective date approaches, we’d like to give you an update on how the change is being implemented.
LabCorp continues to open new locations in the area
IBC is pleased to share that 29 new LabCorp Patient Service Centers have opened as of June 16. An additional 18 sites are planned to open by June 30, and several more this summer, to provide even more access for IBC membership. You can find a complete list of LabCorp Patient Service Centers by visiting www.LabCorp.com and selecting Find a Lab.
Misleading information being communicated about member cost sharing with Quest Diagnostics
IBC has become aware that potentially misleading information about member cost sharing is being distributed on a flyer displaying the Quest Diagnostics name and logo. The information indicates that members can continue to use Quest Diagnostics after July 1 without additional member financial impact or cost sharing. Please be assured that, contrary to that claim, Quest Diagnostics will be an out-of-network provider effective July 1, 2014.
