Mayo Clinic Laboratories is pleased to announce it has been selected as a UnitedHealthcare Preferred Lab Network (PLN) care provider. Under the agreement, effective July 1, 2019, UnitedHealthcare members will have in-network access to Mayo Clinic Laboratories’ comprehensive subspecialty testing menu. As the only global reference laboratory that is integrated with an internationally renowned academic health care institution, Mayo Clinic Laboratories offers 24/7 access to highly specialized medical experts and prevents unnecessary testing with our algorithmic testing approach. We also work with local laboratories to keep patient care in the community, where it is best delivered.

Goal of the collaboration

Mayo Clinic Laboratories was selected to participate in the PLN after a rigorous quality review process evaluating standards for access, cost, data, quality, and service. These standards testify to our ability to deliver care that places a greater emphasis on patient outcomes and the total cost of patient care. Because of this, UnitedHealthcare members may notice a cost savings for services.
