Read More: Genetic testing is often covered by insurance
Lineagen’s goal is to make genetic testing services accessible to every family whose child has developmental delay or autism spectrum disorder. As you may know, one of the biggest barriers to getting genetic testing is insurance coverage. What you might not know is that many insurance carriers do have favorable policies, meaning they often cover genetic testing.
However, getting reimbursed for the genetic testing may be very confusing, frustrating and a long process, and families may not have the time to work through it because they are busy caring for their children.
Often times families have their healthcare providers help them with the insurance process. This can take months and could even take up to a year. That’s very valuable time during which your child could be getting personalized therapies and treatments depending on the genetic test results.
Lineagen’s reimbursement specialists handle the insurance for you
At Lineagen we’ve solved that problem by putting together a team of insurance reimbursement specialists whose sole job is to help families through this process. From the pre-authorization request step through the appeals process your Lineagen reimbursement specialist will be working for you to make this process quick and easy.
While there are many laboratories that provide genetic testing, Lineagen is the only laboratory that provides this additional level of service for families.
