When you use your Lab Card at eligible locations, GEHA pays outpatient laboratory testing at 100 percent. With Lab Card, you pay nothing – no deductible, no copay, no coinsurance.^
Each non-Medicare Standard Option and High Option member* will receive a Lab Card following enrollment in the medical plan. However, Lab Card is an optional program. Members who choose not to use Lab Card will continue to pay deductibles and coinsurance/copayments for covered outpatient lab work.
You must be enrolled in a GEHA Standard Option or High Option medical plan, and you cannot be enrolled in Medicare Part B.
A physician must order your laboratory testing.
You must ask your provider for the Lab Card benefit.**
You must show your Lab Card to the provider at each visit.
*GEHA Standard Option and High Option members with Medicare are not eligible for the Lab Card program and will not receive Lab Cards. The Medicare program covers outpatient laboratory testing.
**Physicians willing to collect for Lab Card in their offices must clearly mark "Lab Card" on the requisition and continue to call 800.646.7788 to request a Lab Card pick-up. If a physician does not collect for Lab Card in his or her office, the GEHA medical plan member may request the test orders from that physician and go to a Lab Card collection site.
ONLY sites listed on the Lab Card website are available to collect for Lab Card. If a site is not listed on that website, that site may not collect for Lab Card. Collection site information, including locations, hours and any special instructions, is updated daily.
^GEHA supplemental benefits are neither offered nor guaranteed under contract with the FEHB, but are made available to all enrollees and family members who become members of a GEHA medical plan. For information on year-round savings for GEHA dental members, visit Savings for GEHA dental members.
