Tests received from an institutional billing account cannot be revised to insurance billing.

If Baby Genes is an participating provider for your insurance company, a claim will be submitted by Baby Genes for services provided. If Baby Genes is an out of network provider for your insurance or a preauthorization is denied, a deposit is required to proceed with sample processing. Baby Genes will submit a claim for services and refund the deposit if payment is received from your insurance company.

If a current procedural terminology (CPT) code is desired, please contact us for specific information.
Upon receipt of a specimen, Baby Genes will evaluate the patient’s insurance and determine if a cash deposit is required prior to sample processing. If Baby Genes is a participating provider with your insurance and pre-authorization is approved, the sample will be immediately processed. Baby Genes will submit a claim to your insurance for services rendered. If Baby Genes is not a participating provider with your insurance and/or pre-authorization is denied, a deposit will be required to commence processing. If the pre-authorization is denied, the patient will be charged the full patient-pay amount for the test and processing will begin after payment is received. If pre-authorization is approved, a deposit will be required to begin processing and a claim will be submitted by Baby Genes. If insurance reimbursement is received, Baby Genes will refund the deposit to the patient.
