Widespread Use of MTHFR and Other Genetic Testing in the Medicare Population

A presentation at the American College of Medical Genetics 2016 annual meeting

The genetic testing market is growing quickly. There are more than 60,000 genetic testing products on the market, and 8-10 new ones are added each day. So, which of these products are actually being utilized, and in what volumes?

In this presentation, Dr. Jud Schneider discusses an analysis of the 2013 summary data set from CMS and the findings it reveals including:

  • How much does CMS spend on laboratory services?
  • What genes did CMS spend the most on?
  • How do these payments align with test ordering guidelines?

The findings around the MTHFR gene are particularly interesting.
