MicroGenDX Patient Assistance
Patient Billing Information
After providing test results to your physician, MicroGenDX will bill most insurance companies for the testing. The insurance company will review the claim and determine your responsibility for deductible amounts and uncovered portions of the bill for each sample sent to the laboratory. Most MicroGenDX tests are covered by Medicare, select Medicaid, and private insurance.
Please be advised that, if contracted with MicroGenDX, your insurance will provide us the amount to bill you for the services rendered. This amount could vary depending on your plan deductible, coinsurance and/or copay, and may be higher than our discount offered to uninsured (self-pay) patients. If you have questions or concerns regarding your coverage, please contact your insurance company in advance. We offer a discounted cash price for those patients whose insurance is not contracted with MicroGenDX.
MicroGenDX is committed to ensuring that all physicians and patients have a complete understanding of our billing policies and receive all necessary information to make an informed decision. Our Billing Department is available for any questions or concerns regarding your MicroGenDX bill at at 1-855-208-0019 option #2. The Billing Department is open 8AM to 5PM CST Monday through Friday.
Billing Process for MicroGenDX Services
Please call the phone number on the back of your insurance card for information on coverage of any MicroGenDX test.
Upon Receiving the patient sample, MicroGenDX verifies insurance information, completes testing, and bills your insurance plan.
Insurance providers will then mail patients an Explanation of Benefits (EOB). Please Note an EOB is NOT a bill from MicroGenDX.
MicroGenDX offers a Patient Assistance Program which allows patients to pay in monthly installments until their balance is paid in full. Contact the Billing Department at 1-855-208-0019 option #2 with additional questions or to begin a payment plan.
If Insurance Provider Sends A Check to You Instead of MicroGenDX
