What reference labs do other labs use? I know of Lab Corp and Quest. Are there any others?

Most labs may use the main players such as Quest and Lab Corp. The nice thing about these labs is that outreach is their main business and as such they are sensitive to a customers needs. Depending upon your region, there are also many excellent local reference labs,hospital labs or you may desire a reference lab that performs specialty testing such as cytology/pathology. A choice of a reference lab is really up to what most meets your needs.

Do you know of any websites that might contain different reference lab options based on region?

You might also want to base your decision for reference labs on the insurance payer mix of your patients. Quest and LabCorp have exclusive contracts with some insurance plans that offer discounts on preventative labs. If you are par with a particular insurance that has one of these contracts, they expect you to refer their subscribers to that lab. So you may have other options in the area, but if the majority of your patients need their labs sent to Quest or LabCorp you will need to establish a relationship with them as well.

bralston-I used Google map to find a list of medical labs in a region. I simply searched for " medical labs in nyc" for an example and it mapped me a list of facilities.
See the attachments for a screenshot of my search result.
