Tiered Lab Benefit

Tiered lab benefits save you money on all three Purdue medical plans.

The next time you need a lab test, talk with your doctor about choosing a Tier 1 lab to help save money. Most doctors are willing to use the lab that best meets your needs.

Generally, the cost for a lab test at a Tier 1 lab will be less than if you had the test done at a hospital or the doctor's office, even if the hospital or doctor participates in-network. You can compare costs for specific lab tests through Anthem's Sydney App, the health care shopping tool.

To use a Tier 1 lab, ask your doctor to fax a lab order to your preferred Tier 1 facility or take a written and signed order with you when you go to the lab. The order will have the information the Tier 1 lab needs for processing your lab work and sending the results to your health care provider. Results are available only from your health care provider; please don't call the lab for results.

LabCorp and Quest Labs have locations nationwide.
