Molecular and Genetic Testing Billing Requirements
Genetic testing involves molecular analysis of human DNA, RNA, genes, and chromosomes to detect whether or not a person has an inherited trait or disorder, an acquired genetic alteration, a spontaneous genetic mutation, or is a carrier of a gene that could lead to a particular disorder or disease.
CommunityCare reimburses medically necessary genetic testing, genetic counseling, and human leukocyte antigen testing when it meets established coverage criteria and is performed by an approved provider. View the document below for more information.
Many insurances are requiring pre-authorizations for genetic and molecular testing. If noted above the patient’s insurance company is requiring the ordering physician to obtain a pre-authorization before additional testing can be performed.
