Bringing Personalized Genomic Medicine to Prenatal Care

Authorization for Genetic Testing: A Primer for Genetics Professionals

The current insurance framework for the approval of genetic testing is challenging due to terminology, rapid changes and lack of data on standard clinical outcomes used by payers.

Accepting that we must work within this system, the best way to improve authorization and reimbursement is with teamwork between clinicians, laboratory professionals and insurance companies.
