Genetic testing can tell you what your patients can’t

What is the GeneSight® test?

The GeneSight Psychotropic test is a pharmacogenomic test that analyzes clinically important genetic variations which may impact how your patient metabolizes and responds to certain medications used to treat depression, anxiety, ADHD, and other psychiatric conditions.

The test is a powerful tool to augment your knowledge, experience, and passion for your patients.

Watch our 15-minute video overview to learn more.

A Comprehensive Report, Personalized for your Patient.

The GeneSight Psychotropic report may help you avoid multiple medication trials by providing information about which medications may require dose adjustments, be less likely to work, or have an increased risk of side effects based on your patient’s genetic information.

Cost shouldn’t be a barrier to the GeneSight test.

Our goal is to make the GeneSight test affordable and accessible to patients. Insurance can be complicated, and we want you to feel comfortable ordering the test for your patients.

We will bill your patient’s insurance for the cost of the GeneSight test:

  • Medicare (Part B) Covered Tests – $0 out of pocket cost for your patient
  • Medicare Advantage Covered Tests – your patient may be expected to cover a portion of the cost (typically $330 or less) and the GeneSight Promise applies
  • Medicaid – typically, your patient will have a $0 out of pocket cost
  • Commercial or Other Insurance – plans vary, but your patient may be expected to cover a portion of the cost (typically $330 or less) and the GeneSight Promise applies

If your patient doesn’t have insurance, please contact our Customer Service team to find out how we can help.

We also offer a payment plan and a financial assistance program to help patients with their out of pocket cost. Learn more about these programs on our Cost page.

Who Can Benefit from the GeneSight test?

Fewer than 50% of patients with depression respond to their first prescribed medication and with each failed medication trial, their treatment intolerance increases.1

Consider offering the GeneSight test to:

New patients with a previous medication failure
Patients who are experiencing lower than desired medication response
Patients who are currently experiencing unwanted side effects
Elderly patients and patients with liver damage

clinical studies published in peer-reviewed journals support the GeneSight test’s effectiveness.

In fact it’s the only psychiatric pharmacogenomic test backed by such extensive research.

In a post-hoc analysis of data from the GUIDED study, the GeneSight Psychotropic test was found to significantly improve clinical outcomes in patients taking medications with gene-drug interactions compared to treatment as usual.1

Remission: 70% relative improvement and 7% absolute improvement in remission rates
Response: 42% relative improvement and 8% absolute improvement in response rates
Symptom Improvement: 23% relative improvement and 5% absolute improvement in symptoms
