Our office is very appreciative of the GPO discounted pricing with LabCorp. Such a blessing for our patients to be able to offer lab testing at such a discount.
We are a very new DPC clinic and we have the excel file of pricing sent to us in January, 2022, but have run into a couple issues. Some of the the testing codes in the excel file are not orderable codes in the LabCorp test catalog (for example 160326 for Lyme testing which is around $10). The code in the LabCorp catalog 164226 lyme w/ reflex is not in the excel file and when ordered, resulted in a charge of over $100 to our office which was more than the cost of any of the listed options in the excel file for Lyme testing.
Another example is code 237393 for a TSH, Free T3 and Free T4. If the TSH is 4 or more 237393 also reflexes to a TPO antibody. This test is about $10. In the labcorp test catalog test 301927 appears to order the same tests but is 6-7x the cost. I don't understand the reason for the price difference.
This has caused a few very costly mistakes for our office.
Is there an updated sheet with more updated codes? Appreciate any insight that can be shed on this issue.
Good Morning, for any specific GPO agreements with either Quest or LABCORP, please direct those to me - firstname.lastname@example.org . Most of these issues/inquiries are very specific and require input from the vendor directly.
