Laboratory Test Registry for United Healthcare – Leveraging the MCL Joint Test Catalog

Originally presented October 6, 2020

Presentation recording coming soon.


Effective January 1, 2021, United Healthcare (UHC) requires that laboratories submit test codes along with test name and CPT code. UHC will deny any submitted claims for clinical and pathology testing that do not contain the laboratory’s unique test code. In order to comply with this new requirement, hospitals must enter their complete test menu, corresponding test codes and many other details into the UHC website by December 1, 2020. The process for generating this data can be time-consuming. For Mayo Clinic Laboratories Joint Test Catalog customers, the process may be facilitated by using existing data.

Join us for this 30-minute webinar learn more about this UHC requirement and how you can use your MCL JTC to assist in compliance.
