Pre-authorization for Genetic and Molecular testing
Providing the best possible care to you and your patients is always the number one priority with Regional Medical Laboratory (RML). Many insurance companies are now requiring pre-authorization for genetic and molecular testing. Payers will only cover testing when used for certain diagnostic conditions. The payer may not cover the testing if it is done as a screening. RML is encouraging all our clients to check with the patient’s insurance before ordering genetic and molecular tests, to determine if pre-authorization is needed.
