West Lafayette Alverno Tier 1 lab now open at 7:30 each morning

The Tier 1 Alverno lab in West Lafayette is now open at 7:30 a.m. daily. The lab is located in the Sigma Clinic at 915 Sagamore Parkway West, next to Goodwill.

The Alverno lab is open seven days a week from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.

When Purdue Incentive and Purdue Copay participants choose a Tier 1 lab, they pay nothing for covered lab work. In addition, because these labs provide service for considerably lower fees compared with other facilities, employees can save Purdue’s medical plans hundreds of thousands of dollars a year by using Tier 1 labs.

Though the Purdue Choice Fund with HSA medical plan does not have a tiered lab benefit, participants on this plan can save by taking advantage of the significantly lower fees Tier 1 labs charge.

Most doctors are willing to use the lab that best meets the patient’s needs, so employees who want to use a Tier 1 lab should let their doctors know.
