A Faster Route to Medication Insights

What is the GeneSight® Test?

The GeneSight Psychotropic test is designed to analyze clinically important genetic variations that may impact how your patients metabolize and respond to certain mental health medications. These pharmacogenetic insights can provide critical information to inform treatment plans and may help shorten your patients’ road to wellness.

Genetic Insights to Help Navigate Your Patient’s Next Treatment

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.

The report also includes information on how a patient’s smoking status may affect their body’s metabolism of certain medications.

The GeneSight test results do not provide information on disease diagnosis, medication allergies, drug-drug interactions, or which medications will work best.

Get Insights for Many Types of Mental Health Patients and Medication Histories

An ideal time to consider the GeneSight test is when treating:

  • New patients with a previous medication failure
  • Patients experiencing lower-than-desired medication response
  • Patients experiencing unwanted side effects
  • Elderly patients
  • Patients with liver damage

The GeneSight test provides information about your patients that may help reduce medication trial and error.

We’re Committed to Helping Your Patients Navigate Cost

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.

Cost shouldn’t be a barrier to getting critical insights for informing mental health treatment.

98%
of patients pay $330 or less
for their GeneSight test*
$0
is the typical out-of-pocket cost for patients
on Medicare (Part B) and Medicaid

And if your patient’s cost is estimated to be more than $330, we’ll contact your patient to discuss their options, including financial assistance and interest-free payment plans for those who qualify.
