Members show their standard Health plan ID card with the Lab Card at their provider's office and request that their lab work be sent to Quest Diagnostics for testing. Quest Diagnostics' rates are lower than what typical laboratories charge for testing because they market directly to the health benefit plan, allowing them to avoid industry markups and benefit from a centralized, automated laboratory.
The Lab Card Program is a voluntary, consumer-driven program. However, if you choose not to use the Lab Card, your normal benefits with coinsurance and copays will apply.
