Curious about the GeneSight test? Let’s break it down.

The GeneSight test is an investment in your mental health. Providing personalized insights to help inform your clinician on your mental health medication treatment. More than ninety-eight percent of our customers pay no more than three hundred thirty dollars for the GeneSight test.

Hold that thought.

According to a large study, patients who took the GeneSight test saved on average over a thousand dollars on their total annual medication costs compared to traditional approaches, showing GeneSight may help reduce the financial burden associated with medication trial and error.

More good news? Many insurance plans, including Medicare, often covers the entire or a significant portion of the test. But with so many plans available, it’s a complex landscape.

That’s why we offer several options to make the GeneSight test more affordable, such as the GeneSight Promise.
