Private Health Plans


After the launch of laboratory benefits management programs and ongoing marketplace reforms, the role and effect of private payers will continue to rise. In addition, the growth in accountable care organizations and other alternative payment models in the private sector will also escalate at a rapid pace.

We continue to champion regulations to protect patients without overburdening pathologists and build on the good traction established in the private sector. Advocacy staff monitors developments at state and national levels—communicating updates to members while educating payers of any effect on pathology.
