Reminder: Use Participating Laboratory Providers


Harvard Pilgrim would like to remind you of the importance of using participating laboratory providers when referring our members for laboratory services.

Members generally incur significantly higher out-of-pocket costs when they have testing done at laboratories that do not participate in Harvard Pilgrim’s network. Many Harvard Pilgrim plans encourage members to seek care at high-quality, lower-cost providers to help reduce medical spending. Under some plans, seeking care from lower-cost laboratory providers can reduce, or even eliminate, member cost share.

You can find the complete list of laboratory providers participating in Harvard Pilgrim’s network in our Provider Directory. Many of these participating laboratory providers have connectivity that allows for results to be uploaded into electronic health records (EHRs), which lets you share results and reports, and helps to eliminate duplicate testing and reduce administrative expenses.

Participating Harvard Pilgrim independent clinical laboratories include:

  • Quest Diagnostics (CT, MA, NH, ME, RI, VT)
  • LabCorp (CT, MA, NH, RI)
  • NorDx  (NH, ME)

These providers participate in the Harvard Pilgrim HMO and PPO plans in the states listed. As laboratory locations change periodically, please contact the laboratory provider to confirm which locations are closest to your office or most convenient for the member.
