Preferred In-Network Doctors and Preferred Site of Service Lab and Radiology (in some instances copay can be $0)https://stateofct.welcometouhc.com/find-a-doctor   (please read carefully)   While the copay difference between a Preferred In-network doctor and a Non Preferred In-network doctor is a matter of a $15 copay (versus $0 for Tier 1), the difference between a Preferred Site of Service Lab and Radiology and a Non Preferred Site of Service Lab and Radiology can be significant!  Non Preferred Site of Service Lab and Radiology could end up costing you 20% of the total service charge (versus $0 for Tier 1).  My word of advice? If you are trying to minimize your out-of-pocket cost I recommend you check that your doctor, lab or radiology unit (personal choice) is not only an In-network provider but also a Preferred provider.
