Genetic testing should be affordable and accessible to everyone who needs it. At Invitae, we believe in ethical and transparent billing. We offer multiple billing options and have an exceptional Client Services team ready to work with you.
INSURANCE (US only)
Typically patients pay no more than $100 out-of-pocket for an Invitae panel test when billing insurance. To get a personalized estimate of your out-of-pocket responsibility, you or your healthcare provider can use our cost estimator (available for Invitae tests related to a personal or family history of breast, ovarian, colorectal, or uterine cancer) or contact your insurance company directly.
Invitae will work directly with your insurance company to coordinate payment. Regardless of whether our laboratory is in-network or out-of-network with your insurance provider, Invitae is committed to making genetic testing affordable.
For insurance companies that require prior authorization, we will reach out in the event of a denial and you will have the opportunity to switch to patient pay, even if your test is already processing.
For proactive testing: Please note that Invitae does not accept insurance billing for proactive testing as this test is rarely covered by insurance.
For preimplantation genetic testing: Please note that Invitae does not accept insurance billing for preimplantation genetic testing as this test is rarely covered by insurance.
For exome testing: We will conduct a benefits investigation and contact you if your out-of-pocket responsibility is greater than $100 or if the authorization request is denied. We will inform you of your options, including payment plans, patient pre-pay, and cancelling the test.
You have the option to skip insurance and pay for your panel test directly. Please see the FAQ What does testing cost if I don’t have insurance or prefer not to use it? Please note that this option requires upfront payment before results are released. In addition, your order must be placed online and you must provide your email address so we can send you a link to pay online using a credit card.
