reducing out-of-pocket costs at the lab
agreement with Anthem and UHC
Dayton Children’s values the fiscal responsibility of our providers and families. As such, we have reached an agreement with both Anthem and UHC to restructure our lab billing strategy so we are comparable to that of a reference lab. This will benefit families as their out of pocket costs will now be comparable to those of a reference lab for all outpatient lab testing, but will keep the same Dayton Children’s expertise in lab and phlebotomy services. This applies to all outpatient lab services, whether a patient presents to one of our many outpatient centers or our main campus for lab draw.
We want to thank all our referring physicians and patient families who have guided us to improving services with their feedback. Please feel free to share this with your providers, staff and patient families. Contact Lisa Henderson at 937-641- 3117, if you have additional questions.
