Providence Medical Associates has reached an agreement with Labcorp

Dear valued patient,

To continue our commitment to improving the quality of care we provide in the communities we serve and delivering cost-effective, high-quality care, Providence Medical Associates (PMA) has contracted with Labcorp to provide the majority of our outpatient lab services beginning Monday, March 18, 2024.

Who does this affect?

  • All patients with a Providence Medical Associates HMO (Axminister managed care) health plan will be referred to Labcorp.
  • This memo does not apply to patients with a fee-for-service health plan (such as PPO or Medicare). You can still request testing to be done at your preferred lab.

What should you do if you have an HMO plan and have a Quest Diagnostics lab appointment?

  • If you have an appointment for lab draw or testing with Quest Diagnostics before March 18, you should still go to Quest Diagnostics.
  • If you have an appointment for lab draw or testing with Quest Diagnostics after March 18, please cancel your appointment and make a new appointment with Labcorp. You can still bring your Quest Diagnostics order to Labcorp.
  • After March 18, the majority of labs must be completed at Labcorp.

What should you do if you have a lab appointment scheduled at a PMI/PMA clinic?

  • If you have an appointment for lab work at a PMA clinic, nothing is changing. We will continue to provide lab draw services at the medical office. We look forward to seeing you at your next lab appointment.
