Invitae is committed to making genetic testing affordable and accessible by removing financial and logistical barriers.
For panel testing, we offer a Patient Assistance Program that provides:
- a partial or total reduction in out-of-pocket costs for patients with commercial insurance who meet certain financial and clinical criteria
- a complete elimination of out-of-pocket costs for uninsured patients and patients insured by Medicaid (state or managed) who meet certain financial and clinical criteria
- The Patient Assistance Program is available to patients in the US who meet both relevant clinical and income criteria for the ordered test.
Uninsured patients: For patients who meet our income criteria and are uninsured, Invitae will waive fees for the patient’s test under the program.
Patients with Medicaid: For patients who qualify for the program in states where Invitae cannot bill Medicaid, Invitae will waive fees for the patient’s test under the program. In addition, Invitae will require the patient’s physician to certify that Medicaid will not be billed for the test.
Patients with commercial insurance: For patients who qualify for the program and are insured with commercial insurance (not Medicare, Medicaid, or similar government insurance programs, Invitae will discount tests on a sliding scale according to income.
Documentation: We ask for proof of income documentation in the form of an IRS Form 1040. If a 1040 is not available, please contact Client Services to discuss other options.

Please note that we do not require an application be submitted before testing is completed. A patient can apply for our assistance program before, during, or after Invitae bills their commercial insurance company.
For exome testing, the Patient Assistance Program offers financial relief for patients whose third-party insurance covers testing but with high out-of-pocket insurance costs. Please see the application form for more details.
