Quest Diagnostics has opened a new Site of Service for diagnostic lab work in the North Country. The new location, at the Glencliff Home on Mt. Moosilauke, will be open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Unlike other Quest locations, this one is exclusive to state employees and their dependents (in other words, it’s not open to the general public).
Workers covered by the State Employee Health Benefit can avoid the deductible by having diagnostic lab work done at Site of Service labs like this one. You can read more about Site of Service at www.anthem.com/stateofnhsaves.
Another new Site of Service option for diagnostic lab work is up and running in Newport. That location, also operated by Quest Diagnostics, is at 71 Belknap Ave., and shares a building with Keady Family Practice. Quest has its own entrance on the right-hand side of the building.
Don’t forget that it also makes sense to check with Compass SmartShopper to see if you can get a cash reward for using a cost-effective facility. Check out www.compasssmartshopper.com for more information.
