Horizon Laboratory becomes preferred provider to serve major insurances
LOVELAND, Colo. (Dec. 22, 2011) – Horizon Laboratory is excited to announce that effective Jan. 1, 2012, the facility will be a preferred provider of laboratory services to United Healthcare, PacifiCare and Secure Horizons patients.
As a free standing laboratory provider, laboratory services performed by Horizon Laboratory often result in lower out-of-pocket costs to patients. Patients should check their benefits for final determination. Patients can go to Horizon draw sites to have their blood drawn at the request of their physician or for their own personal knowledge. Draw sites are easy to find in Loveland, Fort Collins and Greeley and provide ample parking. They accommodate walk-ins and appointments.
Effective Jan. 1 patients with United Healthcare, PacificCare and Secure Horizons may save money by choosing the outpatient laboratory for services rather than having services completed within the hospital setting.
