Genetic testing can tell you what your patients can’t

The GeneSight® test provides information about your patient that may help you avoid multiple medication trials.

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.

Tens of thousands of clinicians have ordered the GeneSight test for

patients and counting

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
Medicaid Typically, $0 out of pocket cost
Medicare Advantage Covered Tests Patient may be expected to cover a portion of the cost (typically $330 or less)
Commercial or Other
Uninsured Learn more at genesight.com/uninsured or contact our customer service team at 866.757.9204

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.

The GeneSight Promise

We do our best to make the GeneSight test affordable for your patients. We promise that if your patient’s cost could be more than $330, we will call them before we process their test.

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

7

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
