Simple Laboratories has a long history of servicing patients. We’ve always stood as a local, accessible, independent clinical laboratory. We have about 100 local Chicagoland employees: a dedicated and passionate group of laboratory, specimen processing, courier, administrative, technology and customer service staff running state-of-the-art laboratory services.
Giving patients information to know more about their lab tests including types of specimen needed, expected turnaround times, etc.
With extensive experience in understanding client needs, our leadership team comes from major operations, including Google, JP Morgan Chase, and the healthcare industry. Given our team’s unique expertise in technology, we plan to build cutting-edge applications for our clients, partners and patients such as innovative ways to monitor and analyze healthcare trends.
Join the dozens of Insurance Providers that we’re already in-network with. Because we’re an independent operation (as many of our clients are), we’re highly responsive and will bend over backwards for insurers because we need you.
We’re certain we can meet or exceed any service level agreements or price targets you have with national laboratories. The big players are the 800 pound gorillas of laboratories, and every payer isn’t critical to their operations, like you are for us.
Small, independent physicians are the backbone of Medicaid in Illinois. We personally know these communities because our employees operate in these areas every day. We hire locally and we service locally.
Competition drives innovation and service. However some insurance payers have national contracts with a single laboratory. Would you give a single hospital a monopoly over all your patients? No. So why do some insurance companies setup laboratories as a monopoly?
Over the long-run, this decision results in more expensive, lower quality and less accessible care. A monopoly blocks innovation, improvements in patient care and provider support. It also puts undue hardship on patients when they are given no choice.
We’re going to keep fighting the good fight to get in-network.
