Effective Sept. 1, 2020, providers can use any in-network clinical laboratory for Blue Advantage HMOSM, Blue EssentialsSM (including TRS-ActiveCare Primary and TRS-ActiveCare Primary+ participants), Blue PremierSM and MyBlue HealthSM. There is no longer an exclusive lab for the HMO plans.

HMO physicians and professional providers located in counties on the Reimbursable Lab County List PDF Document will be reimbursed on a fee-for services basis for the lab services on the Reimbursable Lab Services List PDF Document if performed in the physician's or professional provider’s office. All other lab services must be sent to a participating lab.
