 Exclusive National Outpatient Lab Provider

On October 1, 2017, AmeriHealth HMO, Inc. and AmeriHealth Insurance Company of New Jersey (collectively, AmeriHealth New Jersey) began a phased approach to make Laboratory Corporation of America® Holdings (LabCorp) the exclusive nationally based provider of outpatient laboratory services for AmeriHealth New Jersey by May 1, 2018.

As part of this transition, AmeriHealth New Jersey has ended ending its contracts with the following laboratories as outlined below:

  • Quest DiagnosticsTM (Quest). Effective October 1, 2017, the contract ended for AmeriHealth New Jersey health plans, and Quest is now an out-of-network provider.
  • BioReference Laboratories (BioReference). Effective March 1, 2018, the contract ended for AmeriHealth New Jersey health plans, and BioReference is now an out-of-network provider.
  • Health Network Laboratories® (Health Network). Effective May 1, 2018, the contract ended for AmeriHealth New Jersey health plans, and Health Network is now an out-of-network provider.

In-network specialty laboratories

LabCorp includes the following subsidiaries of its specialty testing group: Accupath Diagnostic Laboratories, Inc., Dianon Pathology, Integrated Genetics, Integrated Oncology, Litholink, Medtox Laboratories, Monogram BioSciences, and Sequenom Center for Molecular Medicine, LLC.

In addition to LabCorp, the AmeriHealth New Jersey network continues to include other currently contracted specialty laboratories. The complete list can be found here.

Why we made this change

Health care has been undergoing rapid, remarkable change, spurred by implementation of the health care reform law, an increasing focus on the individual consumer, and continuing cost pressures. In late 2016, AmeriHealth New Jersey initiated a project to evaluate an exclusive national outpatient laboratory network concept, which has been effective in helping other insurers contain medical costs without affecting quality. Our relationship with LabCorp, a leading national laboratory, allows for enhanced clinical initiatives to improve patient care without reducing access to participating outpatient labs.
