Frequently Asked Questions about Laboratory Results

Why do physicians order laboratory tests?
Doctors and other healthcare professionals order lab tests as part of a routine checkup to look for changes in your health or to diagnose medical conditions and monitor the progression of a disease.
How do I get my test results?
TriCore sends your lab results directly to your healthcare provider, who can best explain the results to you.
What safeguards do you have in place to protect the confidentiality of my results?
TriCore values the privacy of your health information and is required by federal law to protect it.
