Outpatient Lab Services
AmeriHealth Caritas Pennsylvania has a preferred laboratory provider relationship with Quest Diagnostic Clinical Laboratories, Inc. Members assigned to a provider's office that have "Quest" on their AmeriHealth Caritas ID card means the office is required to complete a Quest requisition form when ordering laboratory test(s) for any AmeriHealth Caritas member.
Network physicians are encouraged to perform venipuncture in their office. Providers should then contact Quest Diagnostics to arrange pick-up service.
For offices that do not have a Quest Diagnostics account, the member should be directed to a Quest Diagnostics Patient Service Center. For a list of Centers or to become a draw site, contact Quest Diagnostics at: www.questdiagnostics.com or call 1-800-825-7380.
The only exceptions are STAT laboratory services. STAT laboratory services are defined as:
- Laboratory services that require completion and reporting of results within four hours of receipt of the specimen. STAT Lab List
STAT lab services may be performed by any AmeriHealth Caritas participating facility.Quest Lab Locator
