Great question. A handful of labs today offer testing at no cost to the healthcare provider. Medicare and many commercial insurers routinely reimburse for testing too. I serve as a pharmacogogenetic consultant. Please feel free to email me if you're interested in learning more - mike@gumshoeconsulting.com

I wish more organizations took this approach with analyzing and presenting data to physicians. As Dr. Novak says, a lot of the data physicians don't know what to do. Presenting this to them in an alert format that tells them the patient cannot use this drug and suggesting other drugs to prescribe makes their jobs a whole lot easier and ultimately saves time and money.

They developed the test to reduce cost so that it can be used routinely (though not for every patient entering the hospital).

Are these tests inexpensive enough to use on a routine basis?
