An updated list of laboratories on state contract has been placed on the DHSS website at https://health.mo.gov/living/healthcondiseases/communicable/novel-coronavirus/cares-act-funding.php under the Word document titled State and Community-Based COVID-19 Testing Qualified Vendor List.
This Qualified Vendor List has information regarding daily testing capacity, specimen types, billing, turn-around-time, etc., for the laboratories on state contract. The pricing is for work completed at the state/local government’s request, but may be honored for private entities at the lab’s discretion.
This information is being provided to assist with completing testing either for an outbreak situation or for reopening purposes. There are laboratories not listed on the qualified vendor list that conduct testing as well. There is no requirement to utilize a laboratory on this list.
