Medication are not a one size fit all. Finding the right medication for patients with neuropsychiatric disorders can be challenging and result in a long period of trial and error. The GeneSight test analyzes a patient’s genes and gives healthcare providers information to help them select the medicines that are more likely to work for individual patients. The GeneSight test provides answers that can lead to a personalized treatment plan and faster response and remission for patients. By finding the right treatment sooner, the Genesight test can also help save on doctor visits and the cost of medications that don’t work.
COST: Medicare or Medicaid — If you have a traditional Medicare or Medicaid plan, your cost is $0; Medicare Advantage, Employer or other insurance may expect you to cover a portion of the cost. Plans vary, but the typical cost is $330 or less. If it’s more, they will contact you before they process your test; Uninsured —Genesight has a Financial Assistance Program to those who qualify.
