Threat to Clinical Pathology Laboratories is Payer Pre-Authorization of Genetic Tests

Health insurers want to control the rapid growth in expensive genetic and molecular assays For many clinical laboratories and pathology groups, genetic tests and molecular diagnostic assays are the fastest-growing part of the test menu. This is true both in the increased volume of specimens for genetic tests and the growing number of such medical laboratory tests that are accepted for clinical use. This is a bright spot for the nation’s clinical pathology laboratories. That’s because many...

New Genetic Laboratory Tests Face Complicated Hurdles to Win Reimbursement

Health insurers not eager to establish coverage for new molecular diagnostic assays Navigating the pathway to successful commercialization of new genetic tests and molecular diagnostic assays has proven tricky. While scientists work quickly to bring new and better clinical laboratory testing tools to the market, health insurers work at a much slower pace to issue coverage guidelines and establish reimbursement for these new diagnostics tests. “Successfully moving a genetic test from the...
