Patient Billing

For patients utilizing our insurance preauthorization services, the estimated cost of genetic testing after insurance payment may be available and communicated prior to testing, depending on the insurance carrier and their preauthorization requirements.

In some cases, patients do not have insurance coverage or choose not to submit testing through their insurance carrier. In other cases, patients with Medicare find that genetic testing is not a covered benefit. For these situations, patients can pay out-of-pocket for the cost of testing up front (pre-pay) or after services have been performed (self-pay) and will receive customary pricing.

Pre-pay

Patients choosing to pre-pay in full at the time of specimen submission will receive customary pricing. Testing will begin once full payment is processed.

Self-pay

Patients who make self-pay arrangements prior to testing will receive customary pricing. This agreement must be in place prior to testing and insurance claims cannot be submitted once the specimen has been processed.
