Corvallis Family Medicine’s lab company will be changing hands on May 1st. PeaceHealth, the company that has run labs drawn at CFM for the last several years, has sold their laboratory services to Quest Diagnostics. Brande, our outstanding lab tech, will remain with us in her new position at Quest.
All the tests we have offered with PeaceHealth Laboratories will continue to be available from Quest. In fact, Quest is the world’s leading provider of diagnostic testing. They annually serve one in three adult Americans and half the physicians and hospitals in the United States.
Quest has contracts with many of the major insurance providers in Oregon. You can find the full list here. We strongly recommend each person check with their insurance to see if Quest is contracted with their plan.
For patients who have taken advantage of PeaceHealth Laboratories’ Easy Access discount lab services, Quest offers a payment assistance program. Further information is provided on any bill from Quest.
You can find more information about Quest on their website. If you have any questions about the change and how it will affect you as a CFM patient, feel free to call us at 541-757-2400. Please note there are many moving pieces in a change this large, and not all details have been settled as of the time of this posting.
