The more you try, the more you’re wrong. OLOL most definitely is in St Tammany (Covington and Slidell) For out of network lab policies in EBR, see link and pages 77/78 [link=(http://www.peopleshealth.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/2018_C65_EOC.pdf)]LINK[/link]...

[quote] he does know what he's talking about. Peoples' health doesn't allow their clients to draw blood from any OLOL labs.[/quote] They most certainly do..and the patient pays an out of network lab cost.
