A complex biomarker assessment is a blood test that identifies a patient’s genetic predisposition to various health problems and chronic conditions such as atherosclerosis, heart disease, diabetes, and more. Results from the assessment can help determine whether or not a patient is at risk of developing or becoming affected by a chronic pain condition. This blood test will also help physicians understand a patient’s rate of drug metabolism.
Anyone is considered a candidate for this blood test. Insurance coverage for a complex biomarker assessment varies depending on the patient’s health benefits. If testing leads to a diagnosis, patients may be awarded coverage based on the medical necessity.
