Financial support for patients

Testing that’s accessible for your patients

Our Specialty Testing Services Team is dedicated to supporting patients and providers by verifying coverage and obtaining preauthorization when required. If out-of-pocket costs are estimated to be over $100, we will contact the provider/patient prior to testing.

Quest Diagnostics offers a reimbursement support program for patients who meet the necessary criteria for testing. Upon receipt of a fully completed order and a patient blood sample, our team will verify coverage of your patient’s plan and quickly determine their likely out-of-pocket responsibility.

We also provide financial assistance to eligible patients as part of our commitment to keep testing affordable.
